UFC Quick Quote: BJ Penn ready for 155

BJ Penn Feeling like a Champ

"BJ is looking in top shape. He's been down at 158-lbs for the past three weeks now. He has a conditioning coach who also serves as his nutrition coach. He has really been working with BJ well. BJ has been running five to eight miles a day. He's in the best shape of his life. More so than when he fought (Georges) St. Pierre and more so than when he fought Hughes."

-- Rudy Valentino -- the head coach for UFC lightweight BJ Penn -- tells InsideFighting.com that his fighter is already close to the 155-pound weight limit for the rematch with Jens Pulver at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 5 Finale this Saturday. Throughout his recent career, "The Prodigy" has been known to enter fights a little "soft" and not in top shape.
