Post and was almost trampled under a st
LAS VEGAS -- A sleek B.J. Penn, in his first fight at featherweight, weighed in on the button at 145 pounds Saturday in advance of his third meeting with Frankie (The Answer) Edgar. The 35-year-old Penn, who has always been a fan favourite, was warmly welcomed as he walked onto the stage at the UFCs Fan Expo. Edgar (15-4-1) weighed in at 145.5 pounds. The two former champions face off Sunday in the main event of "The Ultimate Fighter" Season 19 finale televised card at the Mandalay Bay Events Center. Penn, a former lightweight and welterweight (170-pound) champion, came out of retirement to face Edgar a third time after the two served as rival coaches on the reality TV show. "Frankie asked to fight me the last couple of times," said Penn. "This is the one I wanted and Im here to give it my best shot." The 32-year-old Edgar, a former lightweight title-holder, won the two previous meetings between the two at lightweight (155 pounds). Edgar took the championship belt away from Penn at UFC 112 in April 2010 and then beat him again four months later at UFC 118. Both were five-round decisions. "He keeps calling my name," said Edgar. "He probably wants to get revenge but Im not going to let it happen." Penn (16-9-2) looked ripped as he weighed in, with plenty of belt loops seemingly available as he pulled on his jeans and buckled them up. Penn has been working with diet guru Mike Dolce. Canadian lightweight Jesse (The Body Snatcher) Ronson weighed in at 155 pounds for his lightweight bout with Kevin (The Motown Phenom) Lee, who was 156 pounds. Fellow Canadian Sarah (Cheesecake) Moras weighed in at 139 pounds. The 26-year-old bantamweight from Kelowna, B.C., will fight Alexis (Sneaky Zebra) Dufresne at a catchweight of 143 pounds. Moras (3-1) tweeted that she had already made weight at 135 pounds, before learning Dufresne (5-0) was eight pounds over. The two then agreed on the catchweight. "Cant wait to fight, hard part over!" tweeted Moras. Saturdays weigh-in got a lot more colourful when Mexican lightweight Juan Manuel Puig arrived on stage with a sombrero and Mexican flag. Chinese bantamweight Jumabieke Tuerxun added some class by donning a robe, complete with fur collar and UFC embroidered on the back. Dan Spohn of Team Penn takes on former Ohio State wrestler Pat Walsh of Team Edgar in the final of the TUF 19 light-heavyweight competition.

The Kenyan pair kept up a near world-record pace throughout the race and were shoulder to shoulder approaching the final mile before Kamworor forged ahead through horizontal rain and gusting winds to finish in 59:10Olympic and world 5,000m and 10,000m champion Farah, who beat Kamworor in the 10,000m world championship race in Beijing last year, finished strongly and overtook Ethiopias Abayneh Ayele in the home sttraight but was 49 seconds adrift of the winner.ddddddddddddI am disappointed, Farah told the BBC. With great support from the home crowd it would have been nice to win.But there were better athletes who won on the day, the guys were strong and I couldnt go with it. I did run a fast time but as an athlete you always want to win.
