After suffering a childhood of extreme mental and physical abuse at the hands of his unhinged and ultra-violent father, Jens Pulver rose to great heights in the underground world of mixed martial arts fighting. Guided by such legendary trainers as Bob Shamrock and Pat Miletich, Pulver defeated the likes of Alfonso Alcarez, Joao Roque and Caol Uno, eventually attaining the ultimate aim of his gruelling ascent - a world title in the sport. For Pulver, eternally trapped in the nightmare of his childhood, vitory was his only chance of salvation and his fists his only means of escape.
