It looks like Jens Pulver has effectively answered the collective throng of reporters and fans who have been incessantly asking the former UFC lightweight champion if he will fight again by signing with the upstart CFX/Extreme Challenge promotion in Minnesota for one fight.

Pulver (22-14-1), who hasn’t won since 2007 when he defeated Cub Swanson at WEC 31, will take on Frank Johnson (8-4) December 11 at Target Center in Minneapolis.

According to promoter Gavin Rydell, Pulver is looking to rejuvenate his career by picking up his first win in more than six fights by beating the West St. Paul, Mn. native, Johnson.

"We’re really excited to have him up here fighting in Minneapolis," Rydell said. "He’s obviously a legend, one of the best ever. We’re honored to be able to see him fight here in Minnesota. It’s not every day that a UFC champion fights here. Jens wants to keep fighting, but he knows he needs a couple of wins to keep doing that. He hopes to start that here in Minnesota."
