UFC 133: Will Tito Ortiz upset Rashad Evans to get back into title contention?

via thewellversed.com

What a unique position Tito Ortiz is in, huh?

Just two weeks ago his career was on its last leg, with only Ryan Bader standing between his impending retirement and banishment from UFC. Few believed in him and even less put money on him to leave Las Vegas victorious.

Those that did were rewarded for their faith with an improbable first round submission win and a total 180-degree turn for "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy." The motivation? Back. The fire and desire to succeed with no excuses? Back. The hype? Big time.

That's why his taking a fight against Rashad Evans, scheduled for Aug. 6, just over a month out from his last bout, represents a potential cataclysmic shift in the light heavyweight division.

Because a win for Ortiz would put him "in the top three," according to UFC boss Dana White. Could we really be on the verge of putting Tito's name alongside Jon Jones and Mauricio Rua?

We might be. But we also might not be. So allow me to put my finger on the pulse and let us know if you think Ortiz has a legitimate shot at pulling yet another monster upset against Evans at UFC 133 in Philadelphia.
