UFC 133: Evans Vs. Ortiz Results – Rashad Wins Via TKO, Belfort KO’s Akiyama

by

Rashad Evans vs. Tito Ortiz picked up right where they left off four years ago with an exciting UFC 133 main-event. Ortiz put in a valiant effort after taking the fight on short notice, but he was no match for Evans in Philadelphia.

They opened up tentative, feeling each other out in the early moments. Ortiz went for takedowns and took down Evans during the first round. He wasn’t able to hold him long and Evans came up swinging. The two broke out into a wild slugfest, with Tito coming out on the losing end of the stick. Evans trapped Ortiz against the cage at one point but was unable to finish. The round ended with Evans dropping down strikes on a fallen Ortiz.

The second round started with both fighters circling looking for position. Evans finally charged but Ortiz caught him in a guillotine choke, similar to the one ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC 133: Evans Vs. Ortiz Betting Analysis & Predictions

by

UFC 133 is set to air this Saturday night, live from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This might be one of the most injury-plagued cards that the UFC has seen in a long time. What was once a stellar fight card has been bitten several times by the injury bug and has caused a number of fight changes or cancellations.

Just to punish ourselves about what might have been, let’s take a look at some of the fights that we are no longer seeing on Saturday night, before we get into the ones that we will see. Let’s start at the top, the original Main Event of this card was set to feature Rashad Evans challenging new Light Heavyweight Champion Jon “Bones” Jones for the title, however, a hand-injury forced Jones off of the card and he was soon replaced by undefeated prospect ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC 133: Evans Vs. Ortiz Preview & Predictions

UFC 133: Jones vs. Evans, I mean Evans vs. Davis, I mean Evans vs. Ortiz

This Saturday’s UFC 133 card has gone through some major revisions as you can see by my sarcastic headline, but I’m in a positive mood today so I should point out the following: I like Phil Davis and think he’s a future title contender in the division, but Tito Ortiz versus Rashad Evans is an improvement to the headliner, especially given Tito’s recent upset over Ryan Bader. Even with the litany of other injuries (Lil Nog, Vladimir Matyushenko, Alessio Sakara, Riki Fukuda), the Philly crowd will still be a sight to behold and I’d give 5-1 Vegas odds on an attention-stealing catfight breaking out like the one at UFC 101. Here’s the preview: UFC 133 Rafael Natal over Paul Bradley (FB) Mike Brown over Nam Phan (FB) Mike ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC 73 Flashback: Tito Ortiz Vs. Rashad Evans 1

by

It may have taken four years but MMA fans are finally getting three more rounds of Tito Ortiz vs. Rashad Evans. The former UFC light heavyweight champions face off once again at UFC 133. I thought it would be fun to take a look back at their first fight and how it could play into their rematch.

Evans vs. Ortiz 1 took place at UFC 73: Stacked on July 7, 2007 in Sacramento, California. Ortiz vs. Evans was a co-headliner on an event that included two UFC championship fights. At UFC 133, Ortiz and Evans will be the main-event, as Ortiz steps in on less than a month’s notice after Phil Davis pulled out of the fight. Unlike UFC 73: Stacked, UFC 133 is all about Tito Ortiz and Rashad Evans.

A lot has changed in four years for these two fighters. Going into ..click here to read more , , , , ,
