In a historic night of fights for MMA in the mainstream, UFC 75, which featured a light heavyweight unification bout between UFC champion Quinton Jackson and Pride champion Dan Henderson, drew the highest television ratings for any MMA event to that time, eclipsing the previous record held by the third fight between Tito Ortiz and Ken Shamrock.


In the main event, Jackson won a hard-fought Unanimous Decision over Henderson to unify the UFC and Pride FC Light Heavyweight Championships, emerging as the consensus number 1-ranked light heavyweight fighter in the world.
