UFC 84: Ill Will was held on May 24, 2008, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The card featured the return of Sean Sherk, who was suspended and stripped of his UFC lightweight title after he tested for steroids at UFC 73. He faced B.J. Penn, who had since won the vacated title. The card also featured what purportedly was Tito Ortiz’s last bout in the UFC in the foreseeable future.

I think this was the best fight card I’ve seen so far this year. Plenty of very relevant fights, one title fight, lots of action in every fight, lots of hype and drama, and good knockouts and submissions.
They showed 4 undercard fights (9 fights in all).
Interestingly, I think the runner up for best card this year is UFC 80, which was also headlined by BJ Penn.
