      Fans, promoters and the media have been anticipating an Ortiz-Liddell fight since June 22, 2002, when Liddell won a unanimous decision over Vitor Belfort in Las Vegas to become the number one light heavyweight contender. Ortiz was then the champion, but due to injuries and a Hollywood movie commitment, never gave Liddell a title shot. UFC promoter, Zuffa, LLC, matched Liddell with former heavyweight champ Randy Couture for the interim belt. Couture moved down a weight division to take the fight.
