Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Video Evidence: Jens Pulver Got KO’d Last Night

(Video props: YouTube/Vadge99.  Catch Round 1 here)

We’re going to accept some of the blame for this one, fellas. After taking a clear stance on the former UFC champion hanging up his gloves, we celebrated a couple of relatively unimpressive victories and practically encouraged Jens along. Well, no more.

Last night Pulver looked to get back on the winning track at regional start-up Resurrection Fighting Alliance against the 6-2-1 Tim Elliott. “Little Eagle Evil” got dropped halfway through the first round, but survived the ensuing torrent of punches which left both men visibly tired. Neither fighter looked recovered from the break as they headed into round two. Elliott backed a weary Pulver against the cage with a combination before reaching for a thai clinch. As Jens shot in, a well-timed knee put him down and out.

Pulver is a grown man and the decision to call it quits belongs to him alone, certainly not to an MMA website, and certainly not to a moderately irresponsible one. That being said, when you see an aging fighter get laid out like that and then see him admit that he didn’t train seriously for the fight, you’ve got to question his decision making ability.

After the jump, a beautiful 26-second head kick KO from last night’s event.

Ok, so James Krause needed a few follow-up punches to complete the knock out, but he still made quick work of last minute substitution Mark Korzenowski. This fight is basically a carbon copy of his 41-second knock out victory at Titan FC earlier this year.

Also worth mentioning, “The Hurricane” picked up a win in his first post-UFC fight and his MMA debut as a light-heavyweight.

I had the privilege of meeting Pulver in Houston recently, had some drinks with him (maybe more than a few). We had a pretty in depth conversation about his career and where he's at. He's said after he retired he would lay in bed and feel like something's wrong and completely missing. That's all he's really EVER KNOWN. He had great energy and said he felt better than ever with his comeback.. and thought he found the answer by switching weight classes, so this is a big time bummer. I feel for the guy, and hope that he can find an avenue in coaching or commentating. Very cool dude, cool wife, I wish them the best.

I'd call that one, "Ringu" face or even go as far as "Megan is Missing barrel scene" face.
No, "Megan is Missing" is not a porno. Get your heads out of the

Oh, and then there's this:
NO ONE is going to comment on the ironic name of the promotion?
i'm disappointed in you Nation.

that's quite the zombie face in the Aaron Ely chokeout video. Announcers giving the referee shit for early stoppage previously, then .... this.

@ CrushCo
I surely hope that this fucking outfit assigns someone to follow the fight, and secure some god dam video.
If Karma wins tonight, I vote that he quit fucking around and challenge Jens Pulver to Kimbo sponsored backyard street fight.

@Xeno, damn that's right! Best of luck to Karma. Come back with an extra limb.
XENOPHON- December 17, 2011 at 11:32 am
Doesn't Karma fight this weekend?

@Anhonestmoose: The site I copied/pasted from hadn't updated that fight listing once the result came in. I just fixed it.
HEY- December 17, 2011 at 10:02 am
Dammit Jens, stop. Just stop.

In the Angelo Antuna vs Aaron Ely fight, what does "confirmed" mean?
