Pulver: I don't want to walk away with any regrets

by Ben Fowlkes | source: mmafighting.com

The question many people ask the 36-year-old Pulver -- and the question he's been struggling with himself lately -- is, why?

"It kind of dawned me a couple days ago," he said Wednesday on a media conference call. "I thought I was doing it because it was fun, I love it, and that's still part of it, but the reality is, I'm doing it now and giving it 100 percent the way I am...[because] when I walk away, I don't want to walk away with any regrets. I don't want to be 65, God willing, sitting in a chair on a deck in a rocking chair and wishing I would have gone out differently."

In other words, he's doing it so he can quit, but have it not feel so much quitting. He's doing it so that he can feel good about how he's doing, which in turn might allow him to feel good about stopping.

War Little Evil! I think Jens has nothing to regret he had a great run and had some very entertaining fights. I just wish he had walked away after the last loss to BJ.

I'm a big Pulver fan, but HOF? he wasn't exactly a dominating champ like Hughes or Bj or GSP; wasn't a finisher like Couture or Lidell.
