Looks like Jens Pulver will fight again

June
17

Jens just posted this on his twitter account .

for anyone who care i am gonna fight again aug 14th

No other details at this time.  I don’t see any major MMA organizations with fight cards on August 14th. A little research shows that Cage Rage is putting on a show August 14th, so I would bet that is where Pulver will end up.

Franca out, Stephens in at “UFC Fight Night” in Tampa

January
27

JEREMY STEPHENS REPLACES INJURED HERMES FRANCA AND WILL SQUARE OFF WITH JOE LAUZON TO HEADLINE FIRST EVER “UFC FIGHT NIGHT” IN TAMPA

New York, NY, December 19, 2008 – With Hermes Franca sidelined due to injury, Jeremy Stephens has stepped up to take his place to fight Joe Lauzon in what should be an action packed battle in the UFC’s lightweight division at Spike TV’s Live “UFC Fight Night,” which will emanate from the USF Sun Dome in Tampa, FL on Saturday, February 7 from 9:00 – 11:00 PM, ET/PT.

Stephens (14-3), who had been helping Franca train for the bout, made his Octagon™ debut in May 2007 at UFC 71, dropping his first contest via submission due to armbar against Din Thomas. Since then, Stephens is 3-1 in the UFC, with his only loss a tough decision at the hands of Spencer Fisher in June 2008 at “The Ultimate Fighter 7 Finale.” Most recently, Stephens defeated of Rafael dos Anjos via TKO at UFC 91 in November, which was one of the most explosive fight finishes of 2008. Despite taking it on short notice, he’ll look to end this bout in similar style.
