Las Vegas, NV (USA) — The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) announced today that UFC 94: ST-PIERRE vs. PENN 2 is officially sold out. The mega-fight pitting Champion against Champion that will take place Saturday, January 31, is one of the most anticipated UFC bouts in history and now can be seen only on pay-per-view. More than 14,000 fans are expected to attend the event live inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
In advance of this epic rematch, Spike TV will present UFC Primetime, a new, three-part series that delivers an unfiltered look at both champions as they prepare for the biggest fight of their careers.

The following week, part two of UFC Primetime airs Wednesday, January 21 at 10 p.m. ET, with part three airing at 10 p.m. ET on Wednesday, January 28, four days before St-Pierre and Penn enter the Octagon at UFC 94.

St-Pierre and Penn last met in March 2006 at UFC 58, when St-Pierre defeated BJ Penn via a narrow split decision. Ever since then, Penn has been on the comeback trail, cleaning out the lightweight division while St-Pierre was climbing his way to the top of the welterweight division. At UFC 94 Penn makes his move to recapture the welterweight title, which he last held in January 2004, while also becoming the first man in UFC history to hold two division titles simultaneously.
