Jens Pulver Knocked Out, Suffers 10th Loss in Last 14 Fights

Former UFC lightweight champion Jens Pulver suffered a knockout loss on Friday night at the first Resurrection Fighting Alliance event in Kearney, Nebraska, making it the 10th time Pulver has lost in his last 14 fights.

This time it was an opponent named Tim Elliot who beat Pulver, and after the fight Pulver wrote on Twitter that he realized he didn't look good in the cage on Friday night.

"Sorry to all who support me, I half assed the training and got wrecked deservedly so," Pulver wrote.

The 37-year-old Pulver looked OK in the first round, but in the second Elliot backed him up with a combination of punches, hit him with a front kick and then finished him with a knee to the chin. Pulver slumped face-first to the canvas after that knee, and referee Big John McCarthy stepped in to stop the fight.

Pulver was cut by the WEC last year after losing five fights in a row, the last four coming by first-round stoppage. After taking a big step down in competition and fighting on regional cards, Pulver managed to win three fights this year, but the knockout loss to Elliot raises questions about whether he should be competing at any level.

The RFA card also featured the light heavyweight debut of former UFC heavyweight Gilbert Yvel, who won by first-round TKO.
