This past Saturday at WEC 47 Jens lost his fight to Javier Vazquez in the 1st round do to an Armbar submission. However that loss doesn't reflect on what his career really is and was. Jens was an emotional fighter and never seemed to give up even when his back was against the wall. Jens faced adversity in his life and never let it get the best of him.
