- Phil Davis out at UFC 133; UFC actively seeking replacement opponent for Rashad Evans. (Both Tito Ortiz and the wife of Lyoto Machida went on record saying that they don't want to take the fight on less than 4 weeks notice. Rich Franklin already fights Little Nog on the same card. Who else is left?

Wow, I wanna hear some stories behind Tito taking this fight. Hope he wasn't coerced in any ways... Rashad's significantly better than him at pretty much everything. It's not gonna be pretty.

Oh man I know many people don't like Tito here, but I feel like the whole world is going to be rooting for Tito on this one.

Big drama concerning the newly slated Evans vs. Ortiz 2 fight.

White today told ( that Lyoto Machida initially agreed to replace Phil Davis and fight Rashad Evans at UFC 133 before balking and demanding "Anderson Silva money" to step in on short notice.

And while White openly admitted prior to Ortiz's UFC 132 contest that a loss would mean his release from the UFC, the UFC boss said that will not be the case at UFC 133. In fact, not only is Ortiz's career not on the line – he may actually find himself in title-shot discussions should he upset Evans.


This means that:

1. Tito will earn a fat paycheck for taking this fight. It will at least be $450k, considering that's what he got for his win over Bader.
2. If Tito loses, he still gets another fight in the UFC.
3. If Tito wins, he gets a bunch more money + PPV % (so I assume), and he'll also be "in the mix" on his way to a potential title shot.

Would be some sick shit if Tito actually pulls it off (there was a lot of doubt w Ryan Bader b/c he's honestly overrated). He'd be in serious title contention. Maybe #1 title contender fight w/ Machida then if he wins that (wtf?) he can get the winner of Jones vs Rampage. Who knows what will happen since Rashad last fight was over a year ago..

I'm a firm believer in ring-rust. War Tito!

fuu Overeem
Solid bet on Maynard @ +100 for me

Yeah seems like Zuffa would like StrikeForce to sink asap, pretty sad but this is not a surprise really, that was the most expected outcome once they bought the company.

Poker chobo.

- Dana White said Overeem is still under contract with Zuffa, he'll fight again once his pinky toe heals.


Some fans have posted that this is a move to get Overeem to UFC sooner, instead of later.

It makes sense if you think about it, the Strikeforce Grand Prix would finish in January 2012 or so, and it would be better if someone aside Overeem won the grand prix, since it would bring more buzz to the heavyweight scene.

Future fight idea:

- Overeem vs. UFC heavyweight champion.
- Strikeforce grand prix winner vs. UFC heavyweight champion.
- Overeem vs. Strikeforce grand prix champion and winner is #1 contender for UFC heavyweight title.
- Strikeforce grand prix winner vs. UFC heavyweight champion, Overeem fights the winner.
- Overeem vs. UFC heavyweight champion, winner fights Strikeforce grand prix winner.
