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.
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.
