Happy Valentine’s Day From Lil’ Evil and the Producers of Jens Pulver: Driven

(Video courtesy of YouTube/gregorybayne)

If you haven’t seen Gregory Bayne’s masterful documentary about former UFC lightweight champion Jens Pulver‘s personal and professional triumphs, trials and tribulations, you really should be ashamed of yourself.

We get it; money’s tight and the economy isn’t great, so we’ll let it slide this time, but when we ask tomorrow, no one in the Potato Nation will have an excuse why they haven’t watched this movie.

Gregory has graciously made the film available for online screening free of charge for the next 24 hours for all of you cheapskates who haven’t gotten your Valentines anything.

You: Honey, I thought we’d stay in and watch a movie tonight on my laptop so we can snuggle in bed.

Your GF/wife/mom/blow-up doll: That’s so romantic. You can pick what we watch.

The movie paints a rarely seen side-by-side portrait of the struggles of Pulver’s two distinct personalities — Jens, the man and Lil’ Evil, the fighter — and gives a glimpse of the horrific abusive upbringing he lived through and rose up from to become one of the most revered champions in UFC history.

Watch the film and if you enjoy it, order a copy HERE. We support this project and the Driven team supports CP.

Been waiting a long time for this but from all I've heard it was worth it. Congrats, Mr. Bayne. Jens deserves this. Can't wait till I get a copy to Germany.

Wow. That was amazingly well done. Though I just watched for free, I am going to purchase a copy as well. This is the perfect thing to show people who say they don't "get" MMA.

I have a new favourite fighter.

I got the limited edition version when they did the final march. It was great! I definitely recommend this to anyone who is a fan of MMA.

Bought the pre-release signed edition, worth every penny.

@ Gregory Bayne

You may ship it to Algeria, but it sure as hell won't end up here. I'm out of this godforsaken place in a couple of weeks anyway...

I hoope you guys do well with the movie, it's good stuff.

Wow. This doc really choked me up. As a struggling young fighter This was probly the most motivating thing ive seen since watching my first mma fight, Pulver vs Lewis.

We ship worldwide (and the DVD is region free).

Good stuff, good stuff.
Too bad they don't ship to Algeria (yes I*m in fucking Algeria!). They should have a flattr account or something, I don't know.

Hey CP, did you get my VD gift to you?

I already own the DVD as I was part of the original crowdsourcing for this movie. I can highly recommend it to any Pulver-Fan. Really, if you like Jens / are interested in him as a person this is pure gold. It's also, as the title implies, a great and very intersting glimps at a driven personality and how this urge to fight and compete in spite of his waning talent due to age torments Pulver and keeps him going at the same time.

If you're looking for glossy bullshit like "UFC Unleashed" though, stay away.

Thanks fellas. Appreciate the post, and great review of the film. And, thank you for supporting the project along the way.
