5 Reasons to Watch UFC 133
Tito vs. Rashad take 2

UFC 133 has been plagued with injuries and on paper may look like one of the worst cards in recent memory. No Phil Davis, Rich Franklin, Lil Nog, Alessio Sakara or Vladimir Matyushenko, no problem.

All right, maybe a little problem because all of these guys can put on a great fight, but the replacements seem suitable enough.

Try and stay with me for the original card.

Main event: Rashad Evans vs. Phil Davis for the No. 1 contender slot, Rich Franklin vs. Antonio Rogerio "Minotoro" Nogueira, Vitor Belfort vs. Yoshihiro Akiyama, Jorge Rivera vs. Alessio Sakara Rory MacDonald vs. Mike Pyle.

Jose Aldo, at one time, was also rumored to defend his featherweight title against Chad Mendes on the card.

The card looks much different now however with a new main and co-main event and the Rivera/Sakara fight being put on hold for the third time. Joe Silva was forced to scramble and now has made the card a respectable one.

UFC 133 has the possibility to be remembered as the card that could have been a classic or the card that no one should have paid for.
