    Default UFC legend Jens Pulver also confirms retirement from MMA

    UFC legend Jens Pulver also confirms retirement from MMA
    http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2014/7/7/...ement-from-mma
    Prior to BJ Penn hanging up his gloves last night, his former opponent and fellow UFC legend Jens Pulver also confirmed his retirement this past weekend.
    "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." Pulver said in an interview with MMA Heat on Sunday, " I'm done. I mean, I'm done."

    "I think most people are like 'I thought you were done like 5 years ago?'", the former UFC champion said with a laugh, "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."
    "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!" he continued, "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."

    Although likely to eventually follow him on the same path, Pulver also spoke about his enthusiasm and delight that his long time friend and training partner in Pat Miletich finally made it to 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 said, "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."
    And if you want beef, then bring the ruckus

    To be fair, Pulver also staged a match right before BJs in which he got mercilessly outclassed and ground and pounded until a ref saved him. (Sarcasm)
    The Jets have won more Superbowls than you have.

    He should have hung it up long ago. Good for him.

    He knew he was going to retire this weekend. Everyone did Dana even said it, I know he said "if he loses" but did anyone actually think he had any chance at winning? he was -1050.
