UFC 133: Rashad Evans 'Feels Like Christmas' Before Tito Ortiz Rematch

Rashad Evans tells CSN Philly he 'feels like Christmas' as he layoff ends and he prepares to face Tito Ortiz in the main event at UFC 133.

Dustin Green, host of CSN Washington's The Fight Fix, is in Philadelphia for UFC 133 as well as the local CSN affiliate. Green attended yesterday's open workout and caught up with several UFC stars (we'll post the videos all this morning) as well as boxing legend and current light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins.

In the video below, Green talks to UFC 133 headliner and former light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans. Evans seems to be intensely focused, but told Green it 'feels like Christmas' in terms of his excitement level as he prepares to step back into the cage after a nearly 15-month layoff. Evans also expresses his admiration for Hopkins. He also talks about the importance and luck of competing on a city with a strong tradition of support combat sports like Philadelphia.
