Fans of Jens Pulver and perhaps MMA in general had reason to rejoice over the weekend as Pulver’s latest in-ring outing resulted in yet another victory for the respected veteran. The performance produced a long-awaited streak in the right direction based on back-to-back wins this year after “Little Evil” endured a six-fight slide from 2008-2010 with calls for his retirement throughout.
Building off his victory at a Chicago-area event in January, Pulver beat Wade Choate by way of split decision this past Saturday night at Chicago Cagefighting Championship’s show in Villa Park, Illinois.
Though Choate is only 13-13 in his career it should be said Pulver injured his foot in the opening round. While the extent of the damage was not revealed pictures of Pulver’s foot showed significant swelling/bruising.
The win brought Pulver’s overall record to 24-14-1 and added to a resume already including impressive names like Caol Uno and B.J. Penn.
Former WEC bantamweight champ Chase Beebe also found success at the CCC event making it three straight for Beebe since falling to Hiroyuki Takaya at DREAM 16 last September.
