For fans of mixed martial arts, this past week has been a slow crawl of steadily rising anticipation for tonight's "Evans vs. Ortiz 2" event, going down at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
UFC 133 will feature a long awaited rematch more than four years in the making, as Rashad Evans and Tito Ortiz will meet in the center of the cage with a title shot more than likely on the line.
Also on the card, "The Phenom" Vitor Belfort is out to prove his worth in the middleweight division -- and maybe even earn himself another chance at Anderson Silva -- against the man who's bringing "Sexy" back, Yoshihiro Akiyama.
It's been a flurry of non-stop news, analysis, quotes, predictions and previews for the past week and it's certainly understandable if you missed out on a few stories.
But don't worry, Maniacs, we've got you covered.
In cased you missed any or all of it — or just want to keep the discussion alive — below are links to all the major storylines heading into tonight's broadcast.
