NOTES:

  1. The match between Ken Shamrock and Royce Gracie is the first ever UFC championship bout but no champion was crowned because it ended in a draw.
  2. For the first time, the UFC imposed a 20-minute limit for the quarterfinal and semi-final round matches in the tournament.
  3. Jon Hess broke his hand during his quarterfinal bout so he was replaced by Dave Beneteau in the semifinal round.
