The UFC 133 fight card has gone through numerous changes, but has finally settled on a main event pitting Rashad Evans against Tito Ortiz in a rematch.

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans was originally slated to fight current champion Jon Jones on Aug. 6 in Philadelphia.

Down went Jones, sub-in up-and-comer Phil Davis.

Down went Davis, now, after a whirlwind of speculation, sub-in fellow former champ Tito Ortiz.
