Jens Pulver headlined the RFA card in Nebraska and faced off against Tim Elliot, an undersized bantamweight with a 6-2-1 record against not-so-stellar competition. Despite people calling for him to end his career on a high note after earning a decent win over Coty Wheeler last August, he still stepped in the cage once again last night.

Like most of the fights he's had these past few years, things didn't go well again for the former UFC champion. This time, it ended up worse than his other losses.

It was truly a sad scene as the 37-year-old Pulver clearly looked like he doesn't have much left in the tank. He survived getting dropped by a left hook during the first round, but as the 2nd round went on, Pulver got tagged repeatedly and eventually got brutally knocked out with a huge knee.

Pulver laid there motionless for an extended period of time.

The funny thing is Jens will probably step inside the cage again in 3 months. Some guys just don't know when to hang em up

To be fair this is the first time he's lost by tko since 2008. I do agree that he needs to stop though. That ko looked nasty and it's clear he can't compete anymore.

As an avid supporter of Jens I get why he hasnt stopped at this age, however his cage years are wearing on him terribly and I dont think any changes are left that will repair his career at point. I would think being a judges (much like Almeida) would be better for him thanks teaching ancient striking techniques and substandard ground skills.

Personally, I think he should keep doing what he loves, what makes him happy and what he thinks is the best way to support his family right now.

It's not up to any of us to tell him when it's time to hang 'em up, in my opinion.

This is my line of thinking on all fighters, but I have to admit that I'm starting to waffle a little and I'm starting to lean towards wanting him to hang em up. He's mostly lost by sub in this stretch, but once the KO flood gates open we all know that guys start going to sleep more and more often and that's bad news for their futures.

Agreed, but like Budge said...this is the 1st time he's been TKO'd since 2008.

I'm backing him 100% for the time being.

I agree with this to a certain extent i support everybody who wants to do what they love for a living besides serial killers and pedofiles, and i understand getting KO'd in the ufc, but when your getting KOd on a daily basis by no namers i just cant understand it.

Obviously. I guess I don't feel that it was necessary to even state that.

That's not the case here.

This is my feeling on all fighters. If a medical professional clears you to fight, you still want to fight, and people are willing to pay you to fight, I don't think any fans should be calling for your retirement. It seems unbelievably prevalent in MMA, Jens has lost quite a few fights so I sort of get where people are coming from, but if anyone remembers when Henderson lost back to back title fights against Rampage and Anderson, sooooo many people were saying "he's on his way out" and "he should retire soon" etc. and then he knocked out Fedor and put on one of the best fights of all time against one of the best LHWs of all time just a couple of weeks ago.

Pretty much anytime a fighter loses 2-3 fights in a row, no matter what level of competition it's against or how the fight went, in MMA you're going to hear a lot of retirement talk.

I think it's the fighter's life, and it's a doctor's job to determine if they can or can not fight. Everyone else should basically stay out of it and let him do what he wants as a grown man.
