Angry Jens Pulvers Championship already forgotten by UFC



Makes me so ANGRY

So the UFC have just posted a video promo for UFC101...and the foolish write up tells us that Kenny Florian intends to beat BJ Penn at 155lbs. That Penn is UNBEATEN at 155lbs, and that Kenny will change this interesting little statistic.

A statistic that doesnt bloody exist!

Two out of Four most important events in the Lightweight Division prior to its closing, revolve around Penn, and his 155lb loss (One was a full on decision loss to Jens Pulver, the other was a Draw with Caol Uno)

I'm serious pissed off that the insitution would choose to forget an important part of the divisional heratage

just a few corrections before you send anything to the UFC

They dont accept messages...so I just left a commment...in amoung tenthousand odd.

Its so offensive to a Pulverite. I mean, I dont mind giving Penn due credit...but to try and re-market him as unbeatable after GSP recently...and to do it by writing off a Recently semi-retired Champion...is...actually very twisted

so what, some guy who prob works in the mail room at the UFC office messed up on the description for the video. If you go to UFC.com BJ's loss to Pulver is listed on his record. If you look at the history of the LW title it has it listed that Pulver defended against BJ. I dont see the big deal.

Thats exactly the point.

Maybe its an innocent mistake...but COME ON why would someone make a big deal about a supposed Statistic, when a few clicks to their own website would tell them the truth.

However...BJ Penn has just come off a crushing defeat. I strongly suspect this is nothing more then an idle bit of hype, something to remind people that at 155lbs BJ Penn is not the welterweight that lost to GSP.

But doing that at someone elses Expense...is outrageous...but of course half the recent Pulverites have absolutely no knowledge of Jens Pulver Prior to Joe Lauzon or TUF....so whats the harm in insulting the memory of a guy whose indecisive about retirement right now anyway?

Well.. I CARE....I find it demeaning to His Legacy
