BJ Penn beats Jens
Pulver at UFC, bjpenn.com goes down
After Jens Pulver went down in
the main event of the UFC Ultimate Fighter Finale last night in
Las Vegas, bjpenn.com followed suit.
BJ Penn ended the UFC fight against Pulver with a rear naked
choke at 3 minutes and 12 seconds of the second round. The
Hawaiian fighter commented: "Honestly, I have been fighting
these past five years just to fight Jens Pulver."
Penn and Pulver met in 2002 for the
first time and Pulver won by decision to hand Penn his first
loss back then. BJ Penn attributes his UFC fight yesterday to
the vigorous training and his desire to settle the score. Jens
Pulver and BJ Penn have never gotten along, and took turns
hurling insults at each other prior to the fight.
The odds before the UFC Ultimate Fighter
Finale were on BJ Penn with -350, Pulver held odds of +275,
After BJ Penn victory in the Ultimate
Fighter Finale 5 on Saturday night, the popularity caused his
website to crash. All BJ Penn would say in his interview on
Spike TV after the match was, "If you want to know what I'm
thinking, go to bjpenn.com." But it was only minutes after he
left the ring that the web site went down.
