UFC 34: High Voltage was a mixed martial arts event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship at the MGM Grand Arena on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada on November 2, 2001. The event was seen live on pay per view in the United States, and later released on home video.


The card was headlined by two Championship Bouts, Randy Couture faced Pedro Rizzo for the Heavyweight Title, and Matt Hughes faced Carlos Newton for the Welterweight Title. UFC 34 marked the first appearance of future Heavyweight Champion Frank Mir. It should also be noted, this may have been one of the worst technical broadcasts for the UFC as the commentators could barely be heard, consistently being drowned out by the crowd and ring noise.
