UFC The Final Chapter Wiki Update Wiki

After solidifying their relationship with a series of Ultimate Fighter Finales and free UFC Fight Night events over the previous year and a half, business partners Spike TV and the UFC offered the masses a Pay Per View-worthy fight card on free television. Enter the third entry into the popular trilogy between rivals Tito Ortiz and Ken Shamrock.

Even after Ortiz had demolished Shamrock on two separate occasions, fans still demanded a rematch, and for the third time, Ortiz defeated Shamrock with ease, delivering the strongest television ratings for an MMA event to that time in history. Approximately 5.7 million viewers tuned in to watch the main event of Ortiz vs. Shamrock 3: The Final Chapter.
