UFC 133 Rashad Evans vs. Tito Ortiz and 15 Best Old Lion vs. Young Lion Fights

Tito Ortiz is on the comeback trail after a slump in his long mixed martial arts career. In the pre-Zuffa era of the UFC Ortiz battled his way to the Light Heavyweight Championship and defended the title five times before losing it to Hall of Famer Randy Couture.

This was all before Rashad Evans took his first professional MMA fight, let alone came off of the Ultimate Fighter to carve his own path to the belt.

When Ortiz and Evans face-off at UFC 133 this Saturday in Philadelphia, it won't just be two former champs fighting to make it back to the title; it will be a legend of the sport battling a younger fighter hoping to take his place.

Just as young lions battle old ones to take their place at the head of the pride, so it goes in the octagon. Here are 15 classic old vs. young matchups from UFC history.
