First we have the rematch between Jens Pulver vs. BJ Penn. Penn is a compliantly different fighter since these two first meet and if he comes in well conditioned, he should take the win. Pulver is a little small even for the lightweight division. He weighted in at 152lbs, he might be better suited for the lighter divisions of World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC). Roger Huerta is taking on Doug Evans and Thales Leites is taking on Floyed Sword. Huerta and Leites are both top up and comers in the lightweight division and depending on the outcome of tonight’s fights, they should be facing each other in the near future.
