B.J.'s Good But He Ain't Evil

Those were the words of then UFC lightweight champ Jens Pulver at UFC 32 after watching B.J. Penn demolish Din Thomas with a standing knee. Pulver went on to tough out a five round decision over B.J. at UFC 35. Since then their destinies have gone in different directions.

In the mean time both fighters fought Takanori Gomi.

You tell me who's going to win their rematch at the TUF 5 Fight Night.
