Jens Pulver wants to give it one more shot so he can put Lil’ Evil to bed

The once great UFC Lightweight Champion Jens Pulver will continue to try and put “Lil Evil” to rest when he fights Mike Lindquist at XFO 38 on January 22nd in Woodstock, Illinois.

Pulver, speaking to MMAFighting.com, said:

“I’m trying to put Lil’ Evil to bed, if that makes sense, so I can retire the right way, and so I can be done the right way. I can’t go out the way I’ve gone. Not from being a world champion to losing six fights in a row. I want to give it one more shot. … I’m not doing it for the financial side of it. Does it help? Of course. Do I need the money? Absolutely. But it’s more about proving to myself that I can get back. You only live once. Can I make up for the things that I’ve done wrong, for the people I’ve disappointed? Can I still get out there and fight? That’s what I want to prove to myself.”
