UFC 80: Fight News

UFC 80: Rapid Fire takes place on Saturday, January 19, 2008 at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle, England.

The main event sees BJ Penn against Joe Stevenson.
The main event was originally scheduled for an interim lightweight championship; however, then-lightweight champion Sean Sherk was stripped of his title after the California State Athletic Commission upheld its suspension for Sherk testing positive for the anabolic steroid nandrolone. With the lightweight championship vacated, the Penn-Stevenson bout was scheduled to be for the undisputed championship.
