Jens “Lil’ Evil” Pulver was the first UFC lightweight winner, and was undefeated in the Ultimate Fighting Championship from 1999 to 2002, scoring victories over Joao Roque, David Velasquez, Caol Uno, John Lewis and Dennis Hallman. His greatest victory occurred in his first fight with BJ Penn in January 2002 at UFC 35. He was the first man ever to defeat “The Prodigy.”
BJ “The Prodigy” Penn was nicknamed due to his meteoric rise as a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt and then through the mma ranks. Penn is a fearless fighter who has competed against welterweights, lightweights and heavyweights. The Hawaiian battler may be best remembered for one of the biggest upsets in mma history when he defeated Matt Hughes in his first-ever welterweight bout in 2004. Penn can’t wait to erase that memory on June 23rd in The Ultimate Fighter 5 Finale.
