UFC 70 Wiki Update Wiki

The first numbered UFC event to air (via tape delay) on free cable television in the United States, UFC 70 drew more viewers than previous Ultimate Fight Night events on free cable, but less than the historic third meeting between Tito Ortiz and Ken Shamrock, also a free event. UFC 70 featured a main event top contender’s heavyweight bout between Pride superstar Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic and Gabriel Gonzaga.


In the main event, Gonzaga shocked the world in one of the biggest upsets in the sport’s history by knocking the CroCop out with the Croatian kickboxer’s own favorite weapon, a head kick, at the end of the first round.
