The card was broadcast live on Spike TV in the United States an on pay-per-view in the United Kingdom and Ireland on Setanta Sports.
PRIDE FC Open-Weight Grand Prix champion, Mirko Filipovic, fought heavyweight contender Gabriel Gonzaga in the main event to determine the top contender for the UFC Heavyweight Championship held by Randy Couture.
Reports have indicated that the UFC was targeting this event for its debut on HBO, but negotiations with HBO were not completed in time for UFC 70. As a result, the card instead aired on Spike TV in North America at 9 pm EDT on a 6-hour tape delay.
