January 19, 2016 11:51 am by Russell Ess

BJ Penn becomes one of only two men in UFC history to win two UFC championship titles in different weight classes. Penn put a beating on UFC veteran Joe Stevenson back on January 19, 2008, to become the UFC lightweight champion.

Very fitting of a moment in history as Penn recently announced his decision to come out of retirement and guarantees that he will be fighting in the UFC in 2016.

Check out highlights from the bloody fight where Penn made history and eventually cemented a legacy to be inducted to the UFC Hall of Fame.
