UFC 18: The Road to the Heavyweight Title was a mixed martial arts event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship on January 8, 1999 in New Orleans, Louisiana. UFC 18 marked the first card where the letters “U.F.C.” replaced “The Ultimate Fighting Championship” in all the logos and when referred to by the announcers/commentators.

UFC 18 featured the first US appearance of MMA legend Bas Rutten. Bas defeated Tsuyoshi Kosaka by TKO “punches” 14:50 in to the bout. Miletich defeated Patino by Unanimous decision to retain the UFC Welterweight Championship. The late Evan Tanner made his first appearance in the UFC defeating Darrel Gholar by submission (rear naked choke) 7:57 into the bout. He would later go on to become the UFC Middleweight Champion.
