Posts Tagged ‘Tito Ortiz vs Rashad Evans’

UFC 133 is airing on PPV tomorrow, August 6th at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia PA.  The main event is going to be one to remember.  Former Light heavyweight champions Tito Ortiz and Rashad Evans square off in what looks to be a good match.  Tito Ortiz is coming off a big win against Ryan Bader a few weeks ago at UFC 132.  After several back injuries and a devastating losing streak; what looked to be a diminishing career is starting to gain some sparks after that win.

While Ortiz is fresh off a win at UFC 132, Rashad Evans has had a long absence from the ring.  Will this have an impact on the fight?  Probably not.  Rashad “Suga” Evans only has one professional loss, against Lyoto Machada, holding 15(wins) 1(Loss) 1(Draw)– that draw being the last time Ortiz and Evans met at UFC 73.

You can expect a good ground fight from these two because wrestling is both of their strong points.  If Evans’ is smart, keeping it a stand-up for a while will prove beneficial since Ortiz’s strong point is definitely on the ground.  Both contenders are strong with wrestling; however, Evans has one-punch knock out power and clearly a speed advantage.

Both contenders have a good shot at winning– both have some handicaps against them.

So, who will win?
