By agreeing to fight Rashad Evans at UFC 133 on August 6, Tito Ortiz is set to become the first fighter ever to participate in 25 UFC fights -- narrowly beating Matt Hughes to that milestone, as Hughes is scheduled to have his 25th UFC fight in September at UFC 135.

Ortiz is obviously on the down side of his career, and until his stunning upset of Ryan Bader at UFC 132 he was treated as something of a punchline. But no one can deny that he's among the great fighters in the history of the UFC.

We'll take a closer look at Ortiz's 24 previous UFC fights below.

Ortiz has been around for a while and has complied a nice career. IF he beats Rashad...I saw he is around another 3 fights.

Not surprised. He's only fought once outside the UFC.

that's why when he was in talks with other organizations I knew nothing would get signed. These types of milestones mean a lot to him and whether Dana says it or not, Tito means a lot to the ufc, not because of w/l but marketing
