The seemingly cursed UFC 133 is finally in the books and in the end as the dust settles no real surprises came out of the proceedings last night. Rashad Evans made a successful return to the cage after fourteen months off taking out Tito Ortiz with a fast paced and well rounded performance.
Evans got Tito in a vulnerable position up against the cage and blasted him in the sternum with a textbook beautiful knee that spelled the beginning of the end for a game Ortiz.
In the co-main event, Vitor Belfort came out in a flurry and landed hard precision shots, knocking out Yoshihiro Akiyama before he could break a sweat.
Once again, after all was said and done the card pulled through as solid on the backs of the fighters who laid it all on the line. What were the key questions answered and lessons learned following the event in Philly? Please read on to find out.
