"I'm with Tito Ortiz. I'm a Tito guy, I'm a Tito fan. I think that Tito handled him the first time. Tito grabbed the fence, they took a point from him and it caused a draw. If he hadn't done that, he would have won the fight. I'm with Tito. Whether he gets it done or not, I really don't care. Everybody needs to be grateful that Tito came forward and did that because there wasn't one other chicken in the light heavyweight division that would do it."

-- Middleweight motormouth Chael Sonnen had a microphone placed in front of him again with the charge of making predictions for the upcoming UFC 133: "Evans vs. Ortiz 2" event taking place tomorrow night (Aug. 6, 2011) live on pay-per-view in Philadelphia. The former title contender threw his support behind Tito Ortiz in his battle against Rashad Evans but makes clear that he doesn't really care either way. We should all just be thankful that "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" did what no other "chicken" in the light heavyweight division was willing to do -- step up and fight "Suga" on just three weeks notice. Considering his long beef with Brazilians, that's no doubt a stab at Lyoto Machida. Either way, Ortiz did, in fact, answer the call and he'll throw down with Evans tomorrow night at the Wells Fargo Center. Agree with Sonnen's prediction? Or are you going the other way? After the jump is video, including a prediction on the Vitor Belfort vs. Yoshihiro Akiyama co-main event.
