UFC 70: Nations Collide – Manchester, England – Manchester Evening News Arena – April 21, 2007
Gabriel Gonzaga ruined UFC’s plans to deliver a Mirko Cro Cop-Randy Couture title fight.
Gonzaga faced Cro Cop in the main event of UFC 70 to determine Couture’s next challenger. Cro Cop, one of the top stars who had migrated from PRIDE, was the favorite.
However, Gonzaga knocked out Cro Cop with a head kick, which is usually Mirko’s specialty, to claim the title match for himself.
Michael Bisping thrilled the British fans with a TKO win over “The King of Rock & Rumble” Elvis Sinocic in Round 2.
