Jens Pulver wins again in Illinois

Fans of Jens Pulver and perhaps MMA in general had reason to rejoice over the weekend as Pulver’s latest in-ring outing resulted in yet another victory for the respected veteran. The performance produced a long-awaited streak in the right direction based on back-to-back wins this year after “Little Evil” endured a six-fight slide from 2008-2010 with calls for his retirement throughout.

Building off his victory at a Chicago-area event in January, Pulver beat Wade Choate by way of split decision this past Saturday night at Chicago Cagefighting Championship’s show in Villa Park, Illinois.

Though Choate is only 13-13 in his career it should be said Pulver injured his foot in the opening round. While the extent of the damage was not revealed pictures of Pulver’s foot showed significant swelling/bruising.

The win brought Pulver’s overall record to 24-14-1 and added to a resume already including impressive names like Caol Uno and B.J. Penn.

Former WEC bantamweight champ Chase Beebe also found success at the CCC event making it three straight for Beebe since falling to Hiroyuki Takaya at DREAM 16 last September.

    Hey jens fuck it … kick all the cans you want you paid your dues 10x over.
    Gotta get that $$.

    You know what? Good for you Jens, do what you want. There’s a very small group of MMA fighters that has earned the right to do whatever the f*ck they want, and Jens, you’re a card carrying member.
    Do what you want, get paid, and keep yourself happy.

    agree with both of you, jens helped pave the way for the smaller weight classes and he has never been paid handsomely for it. i hope he finds a way to his now.
    also i’m sure i heard somewhere he is possibly taking another stab at the ufc at 145/135? no idea where i heard it

    If he comes back to the big stage, I’d rather see him as a commentator or analyst. He’s done it before and he’s got really good insight and perspective without being too biased like some fighter/analysts (Rashad) or too narcissistic like other fighter/analysts (Mir).

    Yea, I like Jen’s too, but he talks like an uneducated hick a lot of the time and I don’t think Lorenzo or Dana likes that. You should use words like “aint” while in the booth. I have to agree. I prefere someone like Florian or Bonnar.

    Should = Shouldn’t
