UFC 62 Wiki Update Wiki

Defending UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Chuck Liddell remained on the fast track to superstar status when he defended his title against Renato “Babalu” Sobral at UFC 62 with a knockout in the first round.


In the co-main event of the evening, Forrest Griffin took on Stephan Bonnar in a competitive but underwhelming rematch of their 2005 classic during The Ultimate Fighter 1 Finale.
