Dana White threatened and guaranteed Chuck Liddell was done back at UFC 97. Next week, he's back taping Season 11 of "The Ultimate Fighter" and prepping for a June fight against another veteran in Tito Ortiz. You can't make a fighter quit. There's always someone who will pay an old-timer if it makes promotional sense. The WEC is going to give Jen Pulver another shot. The former UFC lightweight champ has fallen on hard times losing four straight and six-of-seven fights. They're all quality losses but that doesn't cut it in the fight world. Pulver talks about the road back during this documentary trailer. He's one of the most emotional guys in the game and if you don't know his story, Pulver gives a glimpse of where he came from and why he fights.

Gregory Bayne has released another snippet. Cagewriter had a chance to grab one fo the first interviews after Pulver, 35, left cage at WEC xx where he lost via guillotine choke against Josh Grispi. Pulver got emotional in the cage giving the throat slash sign to signify the end of his career and tossed his gear into the Arco Arena crowd.
