Join me, "Kid" Nate, for live commentary and results from UFC 133 tonight starting at 5:45 p.m. ET. I'll be calling the fights as I see 'em, pulling no punches and telling no lies all night. The card is headlined by Rashad Evans vs. Tito Ortiz in light heavyweight three round non-title fight. That bout was originally to have featured champion Jon Jones defending his belt against Evans, but an injury forced Jones off the card. Phil Davis was then to have faced Evans but he too came up hurt and had to bow out. Ortiz took the fight on 10 days notice after his amazing upset win over Ryan Bader at UFC 132.
The rest of the main card features middleweights Vitor Belfort vs. Yoshihiro Akiyama in the co-main event. Welterweights Rory MacDonald vs. Mike Pyle and Dennis Hallman vs. Brian Ebersole, and middleweights Jorge Rivera vs. Constantinos Phillippou round out the card.
The first four preliminary card bouts will air beginning at 6 p.m. ET on the UFC's Facebook page. The final two (and potentially more given time) preliminary card fights will air on Spike TV at 8 p.m. ET. The pay-per-view portion of the card will air at 9 p.m. ET.
