UFC 94 Wiki Update Wiki

After establishing himself as top dog in the division, Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre had one major hurdle remaining in order to be put on equal footing with Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva in terms of pound-for-pound glory. That hurdle came in the form of Lightweight Champion BJ Penn, whom St-Pierre had defeated three years earlier in a razor-thin Split Decision.

The showdown was one of the most hyped fights in MMA history. It featured the first-ever edition of UFC Primetime, a weekly documentary series that followed the training habits and personal lives of the two champions leading up to the fight. When fight night finally came St-Pierre dominated, battering Penn over four rounds before the Hawaiian’s corner threw in the towel.

After the fight, Penn’s camp openly accused St-Pierre’s camp of cheating, as corner man Phil Nurse had rubbed Vaseline on St-Pierre’s back and shoulders between rounds. The bad blood between the two champions has still not been settled.
