In Full Mount
LAS VEGAS – Excuse Jens Pulver for believing he somehow found himself on the set of Groundhog Day.
Life seems to be replaying itself in an eerie way.
B.J. Penn is the center of the mixed martial arts universe as he prepares to fight Pulver on a UFC card on Saturday at the Palms Hotel & Casino. Accolades are flowing freely in Penn's direction.
Dana White, the UFC's outspoken president, said Penn is the most talented mixed martial artist in history. Saturday's bout is being pushed as Penn's shot at redemption.
