Default OfficialUFC 133 card

The UFC has officially announced the headlining bout for their return trip to Philadelphia scheduled for August 6.

Originally scheduled to feature a Jon Jones vs. Rashad Evans title fight, UFC 133 will now feature a non-title bout between the fast rising Phil Davis and former champ and number one contender Rashad Evans.

Another option in the lead up to the announcement was a title tilt between featherweight champion Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes, however it appears now as if that fight, if signed, will take place at a later date.

“UFC 133: Evans vs. Davis,” is set to take place on August 6 live from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. The event is scheduled to broadcast live on pay-per-view and marks the first time the UFC has entered Philly territory since UFC 101, in 2009.

Confirmed bouts for the card so far are as follows:
• Phil Davis vs. Rashad Evans
• Yoshihiro Akiyama vs. Vitor Belfort
• Rich Franklin vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
• Johny Hendricks vs. Mike Pierce
• Jorge Rivera vs. Alessio Sakara
• Mike Brown vs. Nam Phan
• Michael McDonald vs. Nick Pace
• Brian Ebersole vs. Dennis Hallman
• Riki Fukuda vs. Rafael "Sapo" Natal

I live about an hour's drive from Philly and I'm not interested in this card. I might not even watch the PPV. Losing JBJ killed this card.

There are a few interesting fights.. no "title contention fights" IMO...

That's about it..

I won't be buying this one.. maybe head to a bar to watch...

• Phil Davis vs. Rashad Evans ( I hope that Phil knocks Tito Evan's head off)
• Rich Franklin vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira (War Rich.. he needs this one..)
• Mike Brown vs. Nam Phan (I just like Brown)

Vitor is always a plus to watch.. but this is not a good fight for him.. it's a gimme...
