Pulver will serve as an analyst on The Fight Network's Before and After the Bell programs. "Having Jens break down the fights for our viewers will be incredible," said Brian Sobie, Vice-President of Programming for The Fight Network. "He's got a great knowledge base, and, as many MMA fans already know, he's entertaining and definitely not afraid to speak his mind."

Pulver will have special insight into UFC 68 since many of his training partners are fighting on the card including UFC Heavyweight Champ Tim Sylvia and former UFC Welterweight Champion Matt Hughes.

Joining Jens on-camera will be hosts TJ McCarthey and Mauro Ranallo. "Our regular analyst, Randy 'The Natural' Couture, will be fighting in the main event at this card so Jens has kindly stepped up to fill in for 'The Natural,'" added Sobie.

Fight fans will soon be seeing much more of Pulver. He's one of the trainers for the latest edition of the hit show, "The Ultimate Fighter." "I can't say what happens," said Pulver. "But I can tell you it's insane!" The show is in its final weeks of taping and will soon be seen in Canada and the United States on Spike TV.
