Rashad Evans to trounce Tito Ortiz at UFC 133

August 6, 2011

In his wildest dreams, Rashad Evans couldn’t have hoped for a better opponent than Tito Ortiz at UFC 133. After nearly two years of being out of the game via injuries, Evans will make his comeback in grand style against an aged opponent ripe for a thrashing.

While Ortiz deserves credit for his destruction of Ryan Bader, let us avoid the “Rashad has everything to lose,” line of thought. Prior to his win over Bader, Tito Ortiz showed all the signs of being a shot fighter. One solid right hand and a good finish doesn’t erase that. Faced with the speed of Evans, Ortiz will have no answer offensively.

Add to that the fact that Evans needs a big re-entrance into the fray. A victory means a fight against phenom & former training partner Jon Jones. An overwhelming victory goes far in hyping Jones vs. Evans.

And he’ll get it. Look for Evans to dominate Ortiz and stop or submit him in two rounds.

Update: I believe I have again proven my value.


Notes on a Scorecard

March 16, 2011

  • I still am unable to completely grasp all that has happened and is happening in Japan.
  • Watching a soccer game (Uberaba vs. Palmeiras, Brazil Cup) played on a drenched field is a treat. No matter how aware the players are, the change in physics is beyond them.
  • Uberaba is in Triangulo Mineiro, like me.
  • Sarah Palin has perfected the long-practiced Political art of “OMFG YOU’RE VICTIMIZING ME!”
  • Wherever she is, whatever she is doing, I guarantee one thing right now - Sarah Palin is offended as fuck about something.
  • I’d become an MMA fighter, but I wouldn’t look good with cauliflower ears.
  • On a potential NFL lockout, this sounds interesting.
  • Looking ahead at the next two years, it’s pretty easy to see why Hillary Clinton will want out.
  • Nate Dogg was most definitely in the house.
