UFC 46 Wiki Update Wiki

In another successful Pay Per View effort for the UFC, Light Heavyweight Champion Randy Couture lost his championship belt in freak fashion when challenger Vitor Belfort lacerated Couture’s eyelid just 49 seconds into the first round. When ringside doctors examined Couture's eye, they determined that he could not continue, awarding Belfort the TKO victory.


In what would be a sign of things to come, UFC 46 marked the promotional debut of top Canadian prospect and future Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre. He dominated respected veteran Karo Parisyan on the unaired preliminary card in what was considered a modest upset at the time.
