Only a month after a bout that helped revitalize his fight career, UFC light heavyweight Tito Ortiz will have his chance to build on it.
Phil Davis was injured while training for his main event against Rashad Evans at UFC 133, so Ortiz, fresh off a first-round submission of Ryan Bader at UFC 132, will fight Evans at the Wells Fargo Center on Aug. 6. It will be a rematch of their 2007 draw at UFC 73.
A source close to Davis told the Daily News he hurt his knee. Ironically, in April, Davis was named a substitute for light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, who had to pull out after injuring his hand.
