UFC 13 Wiki Update Wiki

UFC 13 marked the promotional debuts of two of the sport's biggest mainstream attractions for many years to come, Randy “The Natural” Couture and “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” Tito Ortiz. Couture went on to win the four-man heavyweight tournament that night, whereas Ortiz competed in one of the lightweight tournament's alternate bouts.


In the main event of the evening, the young Brazilian dubbed “The Phenom” and winner of the UFC 12 Tournament, Vitor Belfort, defeated Tank Abbott with unanswered strikes 0:53 into the fight to become the UFC's brightest young star.
