From MMAFanhouse:

"I'm going to fight again," he said. "And I'm about as confident as I possibly can be.  For me, the biggest thing was that I wasn't going to take a fight unless I got out of the sad-ass circle I was sitting in in Iowa, and I'm not attacking any one person there," he said. "I wouldn't do it if I didn't come home. God love the midwest and Iowa, thank you for everything, but I missed the blue turf, I missed the water, I missed the mountains. Out here, I'm back where I started and doing it right"

The UFC, WEC, and PRIDE veteran speaks on making the move back to Idaho from Iowa where it all began.  Pulver has lost 6 out of his last 7 and his last 4 in a row.  Granted, all of those fights he was fighting some of the very best in the world including Urijah Faber(2x), BJ Penn, and Leonard Garcia just to name some.  I asked if Pulver's last fight against up and coming Josh Grispi would be the end of the road if he lost.  He lost in devastating fashion, getting choked out in :33 seconds.  Pulver is really one of the good guys in the sport, and deserves to go out on his own terms.  I wonder if the time away and change of scenary will be beneficial to him?  Who would you like to see him matched up against next?
