Vitor Belfort beat Randy Couture at UFC 46 in a crappy match and lost the rematch at UFC 49.

Oh yeah thanks for notifying me. Forgot that one. But it really didn't count since Randy cut his eye in the most dissapointing main event I've ever seen.

Tito Ortiz is a legend he definitely deserves to be put in the hall of fame along with Matt Hughes once he retires or leaves. Hes simply amazing and has the best cardio I have ever witnessed.
