In March 2006, top welterweights Georges St-Pierre and BJ Penn fought for the division’s No. 1 contender spot.

UFC lightweight champion BJ Penn looks to become the first fighter in history to hold two UFC championships at the same time when he faces Georges St-Pierre for the UFC welterweight championship at UFC 94: ST-PIERRE VS. PENN 2.
