UFC 84: Ill Will was a mixed martial arts event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) on May 24, 2008, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.[2]


The card featured the return of Sean Sherk, who was suspended and stripped of his UFC Lightweight Championship after he tested positive for steroids at UFC 73.[3]

This event also marked the last appearance of Tito Ortiz in the UFC for well over a year, as he was at the end of his contract and due to his feud with Dana White was not expected to re-sign at the time.

This event also marked the UFC debut of future UFC Interim Heavyweight Champion Shane Carwin.

This event was awarded Sherdog's 2008 Event of the Year.[4]
