UFC 133: "Evans vs. Ortiz 2" wrapped from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Aug. 6 with an expected but still exciting conclusion to the main event, as Rashad Evans uncorked a vicious knee to the solar plexus that put Tito Ortiz on the mat in a crumpled heap of flesh.

"Suga" Rashad showed no signs of ring rust after having sat on the shelf for over a year and finished the job with an unnecessary barrage of follow up punches. He's now on his way to UFC 135 on Sept. 24 in Denver, Colorado to challenge the winner of Jon Jones vs. Quinton Jackson for the light heavyweight title.

Should be a doozy.

Vitor Belfort also emphatically proclaimed he is "back" with a speedy knockout of the iron-chinned Japanese judo player Yoshihiro Akiyama. "The Phenom" wants to once again challenge for the middleweight title after his impressive victory but is unlikely to do so thanks to the stunning and conclusive nature of his defeat back in February against division champion Anderson Silva.

However, he did take a big step back towards once again wearing UFC gold.

Other main card fighters picking up wins were Brian Ebersole (who disposed of a scantily clad Dennis Hallman in the first round), Constantinos Philippou (who battled past a fading Jorge Rivera) and Rory MacDonald (who furthered the notion that he's the next Georges St. Pierre by rag-dolling Mike Pyle).
