    Jens Pulver steps back from his earlier announcement of retirement after cutting business relationships with Zuffa:

    Dana White Confirms Jens Pulver's Release From WEC

    Ending speculation, Dana White confirmed Saturday to MMA Fighting that Jens Pulver has been released by Zuffa.

    A report first surfaced nearly two weeks ago that the World Extreme Cagefighting featherweight, a former UFC champion and longtime fan favorite, had been let go. However, Pulver's agent, Monte Cox, told Versus.com that he hoped his client would remain with the company in a broadcasting capacity.

    But White, Zuffa's president, said following the UFC 114 press conference on Saturday that will not be the case.

    "He has been released," White said. "We had talked about Jens being a part of the WEC somehow, but he's not broadcasting."

    Pulver, who has filled the analyst seat for both the UFC and WEC on past broadcasts, had hoped to be a part of the on-air team for the WEC's next event, WEC 49, in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

    On Thursday, shortly after he arrived in Las Vegas for commitments at the UFC Fan Expo, Pulver told The Times of Northwest Indiana he had not yet been informed personally by Zuffa that he had been released. But he said he has no choice but to continue fighting.

    "On the record, you can tell the whole world this: I love the UFC, I love the WEC, I love Zuffa," Pulver said. "But I'm 0-5 (in my last five fights), so I get it. I'm a fighter. Fact is, I've been around a lot longer than these guys today, and I don't make as much money as them. I'm 0-5, and that's something I've got to fix with me -- but I can't take a year off to work on it. I've gotta fight."

    Pulver (22-13-1, 1-5 WEC, 6-2-1 UFC) was the first lightweight champion in UFC history and is one of only two fighters to beat BJ Penn at 155 pounds. Pulver won his WEC debut at WEC 31 against Cub Swanson, but since then he has lost five straight including the last four in the first round. He last fought at WEC 47 in Columbus, Ohio, in March, losing to Javier Vazquez by armbar.

    Am I the only one who thinks that Jens should drop down in weight (again) if he's crazy enough to keep fighting? He looked noticeably smaller to me in his last couple of fights, so I think competing at 135 is his best chance for a win.

    Then again, Jens is also getting old and slow and may not be able to handle the faster 135 pounders, so... I dunno.

    Saying he'll die is a bit stoopid, he'll end up a stepping stone for up and comers before retirement, which is sad because I was always a fan.

    I agree. Always been a fan of Jens.

    The worst thing is that his record for his last ten outings at 3-7, doesnt reflect what a true competitor and warrior Lil Evil is.
