"I feel right now honestly, not to be disrespectful, but I don't think there's anybody who could beat me, so I didn't care who they put in front of me. I've had a lot more experience since [our first fight]. I've been in a lot of big fights, had a lot of success, and that says it all. For him, he's been on a rocky road. He's had to go down a path he never walked before. Losing all those times in a row, all that heartbreak, stuff like that. You never know how that hurts someone's mentality ... The challenge kind of got extinguished a little bit. He wasn't staying consistently hot. It was something I thought about back then, but as time went on, I thought about guys who would be more of a challenge. Coming off this win, it's looking like he's got a little fire underneath him. He's moving in the right direction, so right now is the perfect chance to fight him again. If he wants to fight, I appreciate him taking the fight, but I'm going to smash him. I've been training so long, I just want to fight somebody."
Rashad Evans and Tito Ortiz have three weeks to promote their upcoming rematch at UFC 133 on Aug. 6 in Philadelphia and it doesn't sound like "Suga" is wasting any time, telling MMA Fighting he's ready to smash "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" in "The City of Brotherly Love." Evans battled Ortiz to a controversial draw back in 2007 but both fighters have been on a different career trajectory since their initial meeting. But what will be the biggest factor on fight night? Can Ortiz use the momentum from his UFC 132 win while capitalizing on Evans' cage rust? Which of these two former 205-pound champions will prevail?
