UFC 32 Wiki Update Wiki

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.


UFC 32 also marked the final UFC commentating gig from long time broadcaster Jeff Blatnick, who had been with the UFC since UFC 4.
