UFC 47 Wiki Update Wiki

In one of the most exciting fight cards up to that time in the UFC’s history, UFC 47: It's On marked the long-awaited light heavyweight fight between former friends and training partners Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz, after months of misstarts and accusations that “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” was ducking “The Iceman.” It was the highest performing Zuffa, LLC-produced Pay Per View since UFC 40, drawing 105,000 buys. Leading up to the fight, which had been in negotiations for over a year, Liddell claimed that Ortiz, the former champion, had been ducking him because he feared what would happen if the two ever fought, while Ortiz claimed that--as training partners--the two had made a pact never to fight one another. Dana White, who brokered the fight, was particularly close to both fighters, having served as a former manager before his presidency of Zuffa. When the fight finally occurred, Liddell made good on his word, finishing Ortiz in the second round with a barrage of punches. The victory paced Liddell’s continuing ascendancy into crossover superstardom.
