Rashad Evans vs. Tito Ortiz II Set for Cincinnati’s UFC 77 Event
Despite two title fights and the Octagon debut of a former PRIDE heavyweight champion, it was Ortiz (15-5-1 MMA, 14-5-1 UFC) and Evans (10-0-1 MMA, 5-0-1 UFC) who remained the focus of this past weekend’s pay-per-view event. The former UFC light heavyweight champion and his undefeated opponent stole the headlines, secured top billing in the event’s marketing materials, and even became the focus of the night’s post-event press conference. During that media event, UFC president Dana White stated — rather definitively — that a rematch was imminent and that neither fighter would be booked for another event before the rematch takes place. As it turns out, the UFC wasted no time scheduling the date. UFC 77 takes place Oct. 20 at U.S. Bank Arena in downtown Cincinnati. The arena can accommodate approximately 17,000 spectators. Just like this past weekend, Evans vs. Ortiz II may steal some of the spotlight from what is supposed to be UFC 77’s real main event: current UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva vs. Rich Franklin, who will meet in another anticipated rematch. In October 2006, Silva defeated then-champ Franklin with a first-round TKO to claim the middleweight championship. Franklin, a former Cincinnati high school math teacher, will look to reclaim his title in front of a hometown crowd.

Ortiz vs Evans Rematch
Neither Tito Ortiz or Rashad Evans will face another opponent before they have a rematch later this year. The rematch is expected to happen this fall with The Star-Ledger in New Jersey speculating that it may happen at the UFC tentatively scheduled for November at Newark’s Prudential Center. While the rematch would surely be a welcome and solid addition to a PPV card there is speculation that the fight may headline a free Spike TV event. Since the original fight happened just days ago the details on the rematch will likely not be available for sometime although November or December appear to be the months the UFC is targeting for the rematch. What will happen when they fight again and who will win this time.
