Past performances and head-to-head matchups might be relevant for some who pride themselves on pre-determining winners, but that information seems useless when comparing Matt Hughes and BJ Penn. The two fighters will meet tonight at the Arrowhead Pond in a rematch of their Ultimate Fighting Championship bout in January 2004. Penn ended that meeting with a submission hold, but it's Hughes who will again be putting his UFC welterweight belt on the line in the pay-per-view event.

Tank is big. Tank goes 270, easy, his belly bulging out, huge as a camel hump, and strong, my lord, he can bench-press 600 pounds. He is bad in a way you can see from the 49th row, the shaved head and heavy dark goatee and eyes that seem to glare from under the heavy line of his brow like a machine-gunner's under a helmet. Tank is a street fighter with a bazooka right hand, and he is stalking Cal Worsham, a 230-pound U.S. Marine who is no slouch either, a master of taekwondo.
