Monte Cox, Jens Pulver’s longtime manager, confirmed on the radio earlier this week that Pulver will be switching over to the WEC in order to compete in their featherweight division later this year.
Pulver’s fight against BJ Penn on The Ultimate Fighter 5 finale on June 23rd will be his last in the UFC and at 155 lbs at least for the near future.
An official announcement has not yet been made but it’s expected to come after the event on June 23rd, possibly even after the fight again Penn. No word yet on whether or not Pulver will be Urijah Faber’s next opponent this fall provided he defeats Penn for a second time.
