Jens Pulver Confirms MMA Retirement
Posted by Joseph Lee on 07.07.2014



In an interview with MMA Heat (via Bloody Elbow), Jens Pulver confirmed that he is retiring from MMA. Here are highlights:

On finally retiring: "I did (compete at) 135 for a bit, and everyone was saying 'time to retire', this and that, and I just refused to announce it or say it, but I think I've said it like three times already today. I'm done. I mean, I'm done. I think most people are like 'I thought you were done like 5 years ago?' I've got two guys that I've started coaching. My two-time national champion is unreal. I'm having a blast doing it. I'm back in Iowa, and I'm training with the old Miletich camp and I'm going to start being a coach there. That aspect I of course love."

On what he wants to do now: "I want to commentate. I got to do Cage Warriors, and I get to do that again in Ireland on August. I love commentating. You know me, I love to talk. It's the best seat in the house, and you get to have opinions, I love it! I would love to continue doing that, but above all, I want to raise my kids. Be around with my kids, and be a better dad than my dad was."

On Pat Miletich going into the UFC Hall of Fame: "I think it's about time. I'm glad. Everybody is like 'no, you need to be in it!', I'm like 'no, Pat needed to be in there'. I'm glad for him. He's my older brother, and this takes me back to when we started this all, this crazy journey. To see him there get his retirement and get his dues in the UFC, it's cool. I'm trying not to cry."
