The Boston Herald – an unusual but surprisingly good source of UFC news – published an article today about the upcoming card for UFC 61: "Bitter Rivals."
Here's a few snips that cover all the important details:
The pay-per-view event will take place on July 8 (10 p.m., EST) at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.
The main event will feature the rubber match between heavyweights Tim Sylvia and Andrei Arlovski.
And of course, it wouldn't be a bitter rivalry without Tito Ortiz vs. Ken Shamrock. The two will finally get the chance to settle their differences in the best way: battling it out in the octagon.
That's great that Tito is back on board. There were a lot of skeptics about him ducking Shamrock (we won't name any names).
