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?

T- 4 days until UFC 133 on August 6th at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center.  UFC 133 is headlined by former light heavyweight champions Tito Ortiz and Rashad Evans squaring off for the second time.

Check out Dragon Within Mixed Martial Art‘s Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu(BJJ) mentor BJJ Black Belt Tim Burrill in the corner for UFC Middleweight, Jorge “El Conquistador” Rivera in his fight against Costantinos Philippou. Originally, the opponent for Jorge was Alessio Sakara but Sakara had to drop out due to a knee injury.  Castantinos (Casta), who was originally matched up with Rafael Natal on the UFC 133 undercard, will be stepping up to meet with Jorge.

The match-up between Rivera and Sakara is seemingly doomed since this will be the third match up attempt and third time scratched.   Either way,  whether its Sakara or Casta–Dragon Within Mixed Martial Arts will be watching Jorge “El Conquistador” Rivera use all the submissions and chokes and sweeps he taught us at the last Brazilian Jiu Jitsu(BJJ)/Mixed Martial Arts(MMA) workshop.

JORGE RIVERA vs CONSTANTINOS PHILIPPOU.

Jorge, aka El Conquistador, came to Dragon Within Mixed Martial Arts, Salem MA, along with BJJ Black Belt: Tim Burrill, to our Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) workshop.  He helped us all with our submissions and everybody liked learning techniques from a fighter who has actually had success in the cage from the same sweeps and submissions that he demonstrated for us.  It was one of our most successful and fun workshops and we were delighted that he came to our school to teach us.
