Former UFC lightweight champion Jens Pulver suffered his third loss since 2011 on the regional fight scene Friday, as Eric Kelly earned a TKO victory over Pulver at ONE FC 5: Pride of a Nation.
Pulver, who last competed in the UFC in 2007, is now 26-17-1 in his career. The 37-year-old said after the fight that retirement is coming closer and closer.
“One or two more fights, but retirement is on its way,” Pulver said.
Pulver is just 4-9 since 2008, including a six-fight losing skid that started in the WEC and led to his release from the promotion.
Kelly (8-0) has earned three consecutive victories for ONE FC, the main MMA promotion in Asia.
