UFC 32, which took place at the Continental Airlines Arena in New Jersey, featured some of the best fights put on under new owners Zuffa, LLC, including a memorable lightweight bout in which BJ Penn earned his "Prodigy" nickname by knocking out Din Thomas with a vicious knee. Also on the card was the first-ever Light Heavyweight Championship bout (formerly known as the Middleweight division), which featured Tito Ortiz successfully defending his title against Australian fighter Elvis Sinosic.
