"In a fight many Ultimate Fighting Championship® fans have waited more than three years to see, “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” Tito Ortiz will step into the Octagon Feb. 5, 2005 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino Events Center to fight Brazilian star Vitor “The Phenom” Belfort in the main event of UFC® 51: Super Saturday."

 

This is gonna be one hell of a main event for UFC 51, with Tito hopefully finding form again and Belfort being his brutal best. Just hope the undercard can live up to the main event, with hopefully the likes of Genki Sudo and Carlos Newton making it onto the card!

I was thinking more along the lines of I hope the main event can live up to the undercard. Although I am interested to see the main event. I honestly don't think it deserves the spot, as their is two title fights on the undercard. The UFC will nearly always put the the highest draws in the main event spot, but I just believe that you should never put a non title fight over a title fight, it's very disrespectful to the fighters involved in the championship matches in my opinion.

I agree that title fightsshould be high up the bill, and should often be the main event. But i couldn't see Evan Tanner vs David Terrell (despite seeing Tanner again will be awesome) getting the interest that Belfort vs Tito does, as both are former Light Heavyweight Champs and Tito is know by more mainstream audiences.

 

Its a shame, but on the bright side at least the card is shaping up to look quite impressive. Especially looking forward to Baroni vs Lawler & Tanner vs Terrell
