"A superb effort . . . this is not a tale of UFC gloryit is the account of one individual who has been to hell and back. . . . Unlike most of the pablum we see in this genre, here is one athlete who REALLY has a story to tell." MMAMemories.com

Jens, assisted by Eric Knauss, tells the story of a childhood raised by a loving mother and an alcoholic abusive father. The sport of wrestling allows him to focus his anger, but he drinks away an athletic scholarship in idyllic Idaho. Every time he almost gets out of the morass, his past comes crashing back.
The story ends with his Ultimate Fighting Champion title defense against BJ Penn, a prodigy who was a big favorite coming in to the fight.
The book contained much more emotional depth than expected. Readers expecting a detailed history of Pulver's fights will be disappointed, however. This is more about his personal struggles outside the ring than his battles inside the ring. The other potential shortfall is that the story is still unfinished. Since the book Jens has had a fall, and is the midst of a comeback. It would be interesting to read his take on that as well.
What a compelling and excellent read for any sports fan. Talk about highs and lows that Jens went through. I was captivated when I started reading it and felt consumed to read on.
After reading it, I feel alot closer to Jens even though I've never met the man before. I feel for him and want to encourage and support him. That is how this book makes me feel. It makes me look at the things around me and not take them for granted because there are so many that are alot worse off than I.
This book is inspiring and motivating. I want to thank Jens and Erich for taking the time to write this book, it is truly a great piece, one that I will always keep. Much respect goes out to Jens for having the courage to step out in the spot light and share his "personal" story to the world.
Go ahead and get a book of your own: "Little Evil; One Ultimate Fighter's Rise to the Top" by Jens Pulver & Erich Krauss
I recommend that everyone read this book it is interesting from start to finish and doesn't hold anything back. He really went through some rough times before becoming the champion fans of mixed martial arts know today.
I recommend this book not only to MMA fans but to anybody with a heart. An awe-inspiring journey that pulls at your heart strings every step of the way until you find yourself cheering Jens along.
Wonderful book, worth more than it costs.
This was the original MMA fighter autobiography. Jens's was the 1st MMA fighter to tell his story. When "Little Evil" was written, was shortly after Jens Pulver defended his championship belt against then up and coming fighter(& future champion) B.J. Penn!
Jens went through hell as a kid. He had every reason to become just another punk kid, with no direction in life dealing drugs and drinking. But lucky for him, he found wrestling and had alot of great coaches & mentors direct him to a life worth living for.
Since this book was written however Jens Pulver lost his belt, as do all champions eventually. He will always be one of the original UFC fighters and always a legend. Jens is now training again and fighting in the WEC, he already lost one title shot against Urijah Faber, but the rematch is coming soon!
As an avid fan of MMA, I think Jens still has alot of fight in him and he will be around for awhile and his legendary left hand is as strong as ever!
Good short book for any MMA fans!
