UFC 37.5 Wiki Update Wiki

In one of the most bizarre events in the company's history, UFC 37.5 was a last-minute event put on in the Summer of 2002 for the sole purpose of getting the best fight of the night aired on Fox Sports Net's The Best Damn Sports Show Period. That fight ended up being the one between Robbie Lawler and Steve Berger, which therefore holds the distinction of being the first fight ever aired on U.S. cable television.

The card only had six fights, and was not aired on Pay Per View until a later date. The odd numbering for the event was due to the fact that UFC 38 was already being marketed for its debut in England the following month.
