Jens, we all love you. You're a legend in the sport. So please listen to us....

Stop. PLEASE stop. We're tired of seeing you lose. You're past your prime and can't win a fight against someone who isn't a complete can. And even then, it's a coin flip.

We'll always hold you in high regard as the first UFC lightweight Champ and for all the great fights you've given us. But the time to move on was 2 years ago. You're a great commentator. Please just do that

Jens has been done for years, I'll admit that, but instead of "UFC Castoff" how about "******* UFC Legend Jens Pulver"

It has been five fights since he's made it out of the first round, he's lost 13 times by TKO or knockout, many times to guys that rarely knock people out, and that is what he does best, I don't that it's that he's finished, but he hasn't adapted as the times have changed. Maybe he lost what he had somewhere along the way, he just learned to accept losing, I honestly don't know why he keeps losing by guillotine choke, 3 out of last 4 fights. It's one of the saddest things in MMA, I don't know why more people can't be like Bas Rutten and disappear gracefully,

Jens really needs to quit. I pray he gets the win and retires on somewhat of a high note. He is the only man besides Frankie Edgar who beat BJ Penn at 155, and as was previously mentioned the first UFC 155 champ. That's a pretty good legacy if you ask me.
