Ending speculation, Dana White confirmed Saturday to MMA Fighting that Jens Pulver has been released by Zuffa.
A report first surfaced nearly two weeks ago that the World Extreme Cagefighting featherweight, a former UFC champion and longtime fan favorite, had been let go. However, Pulver's agent, Monte Cox, told Versus.com that he hoped his client would remain with the company in a broadcasting capacity.
But White, Zuffa's president, said following the UFC 114 press conference on Saturday that will not be the case.
"He has been released," White said. "We had talked about Jens being a part of the WEC somehow, but he's not broadcasting." LINK
