UFC 74 Wiki Update Wiki

After winning the Heavyweight Championship in improbably heroic fashion against Tim Sylvia earlier in the year, Randy Couture defended his title with flying colors in a bloody battle with the larger, younger Gabriel Gonzaga in the main event of UFC 74 in August of 2007. Although Couture broke his forearm blocking a Gonzaga head kick, he turned the pressure on and finished Gonzaga with strikes on the ground in the third round.


In the co-featured bout of the evening, former Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre bounced back from his title loss to Matt Serra by dominating Josh Koscheck over the course of three rounds. St-Pierre impressed critics by controlling Kocheck, an NCAA Division 1 All-American, on the ground for much of the fight.
