Default Machida v Penn

How did this bout come around? Machida is 205 pounds, while Penn is 155-170?

How did the bout go?

How much did they weigh when they fought?

It was fought at Heavyweight, Penn was signed with K1, and looking to fight bigger guys. The fight was pretty shitty, not much went on but Machida outworked him. They both looked like they shouldn't be fighting at heavy, especially penn obviously.

But it was still sort of exciting to watch, two of the most talented guys in the game, but had you not known who either guy was, it wasn't much to watch.

Penn fought at heavyweight? The man is fearless. I wish he'd come in better shape.

Like Liddell I think to a good degree his legacy rests on Pulver. Is he a legend or a great.

Your right a loss to Pulver could just tear him apart. Pulvers a good fighter but not the kind of guy BJ needs to be losing to more then once.
