UFC 133: "Evans vs. Ortiz 2" is just around the corner, this Sat., Aug. 6 in Philadelphia. The event features the return of Rashad Evans against the resurgent Tito Ortiz in a long awaited rematch.

Yadda, yadda, yadda.

That coverage has taken a back seat to the big news that Fedor Emelianenko was released by Strikeforce, which is contentious due to the Russian's contract presumably being with Showtime, and the entire Golden Glory team getting released by Zufa.

Details have been slim but today's UFC 133 pre-fight press conference was as good a time as any for UFC President Dana White to clear the air on everything. And that's exactly what he did.

After the jump, White details exactly what the issue is with Golden Glory, why all fighters from that camp are gone now and will be for the foreseeable future and busts out a handy-dandy prop to help push his point that Fedor is, and always was, way overrated.
