UFC Betting Lines at BetDSI:
Evans -425 vs. Ortiz -325

Tito Ortiz:

Record: 17-8-1

Analysis: If you are a Tito Ortiz fan, and believe me there are plenty just like you out there, you are probably thinking “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” has a real shot of upsetting Evans, but that’s just your inner fan speaking. The cruel reality is otherwise.

Although Ortiz made an amazing comeback win against Ryan Bader a month ago, you can’t forget that he got crushed by Matt Hamill last October. Don’t be naïve, just days ago everyone was talking about how Ortiz needed to retire and get his head into something else and now we are ready to bet on him beating Evans at I don’t think so.

Rashad Evans:

Record: 20-1-1

Analysis: I know Rashad has been inactive since he defeated the current No. 1 contender Quinton Jackson at UFC 114 last May but he remains as one of the most unpredictable, difficult fighters to beat.

“Suga” is younger, faster and can out box Ortiz. In a three round fight it’s impossible for Ortiz to keep up with his pace as Rashad is agile and has more endurance than Tito. Remember Evans is 4-1 (Chuck Liddell, Forrest Griffin and Rampage Jackson) in his last five fights with the only loss coming via Lyoto Machida.

UFC 133 Prediction: He’s not the fan favorite, but I don’t follow the masses, I follow the money. Bet on Evans to end it all in the second round.
