IF THIS ENDS up being the swan song of Tito Ortiz, his final countdown so to speak, he's honored to have it happen here in Philadelphia. Why? "Man, this is Fight Town USA," Ortiz said. "I have always been a huge Rocky fan and it's kind of funny because in my gym, actually in the guys bathroom, there is a picture of Rocky standing on the top of the stairs [of the Art Museum]. It's great to go after this in a city with such a great fighting history. I feel honored to be on this card, I really do. " Ortiz is the main event in UFC's second ever pay-per-view jaunt to Philadelphia, tomorrow night at the Wells Fargo Center.

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 ...

Dim the house lights, crank up the guitar music, bring out Joe Rogan and a couple of pretty girls, and the stage is set for the Ultimate Fighting Championship 133 weigh- in. At the Wells Fargo Center on Friday, Rogan, a TV personality long associated with mixed martial arts, introduced the combatants to the crowd. Saturday is the big day for the 22 fighters scheduled to compete in the octagon. Fans applauded and whistled for eight fighters on the preliminary card, which will be available on Facebook Saturday starting at 5:05 p.m. They cheered for four more preliminary-card combatants, who will fight on Spike TV, and they became louder for nine of the 10-man main card.

Should Rashad Evans defeat Tito Ortiz at UFC 133, he becomes the No. 1 contender for the light-heavyweight title, Dana White told reporters on a conference call yesterday. No real surprise there. Evans (20-1-1 MMA record) has waited patiently for this Aug. 6 main event at the Wells Fargo Center since a win by decision over Quinton "Rampage" Jackson at UFC 119 last May. In that time, Evans has watched two opponents for his main event of the 11-fight card in Philly prematurely forced to throw in the towel.

Tito Ortiz was at home sitting on his couch, basking in the glory of his first win since the fall of 2006. He was sore. But he had his glory to comfort him. "I'm Tito Ortiz, and I'm staying here for a long, long time," he yelled into a microphone moments after he beat Ryan Bader by submission at the 1-minute, 56-second mark of the first round at UFC 132 on July 2. UFC president Dana White was beaming ringside. At that moment, Ortiz was going to get his rest this summer. He wasn't the man Rashad Evans was supposed to fight in the main event at UFC 133 on Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center.

The baseball diamond in the middle of an Iowa corn field built for the movie "Field of Dreams" is for sale. Asking price: $5.4 million. Don and Becky Lansing are the owners of the site near Dyersville, where the field was built by Universal Studios. The couple said they love the land, which has been in Don Lansing's family for more than a century, but they're ready to retire and give up the property. "It's really time for us to head to the locker room. Maybe that sounds corny.

BAD BLOOD has long been the fuel that drives combat sports. In the UFC, grudges have been the essence of its existence. Saturday, its latest will come full circle when top contender Rashad Evans finally will get his mitts on light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones at UFC 145 in Atlanta (10 p.m.). While the UFC has its latest pay-per-view card scheduled for 12 bouts, it's safe to say they'll all be on the back burner behind this highly anticipated main event. This fight perhaps has had the biggest lead-up to any in the history of the UFC light-heavyweight division, right up there with the great throwback battles Tito Ortiz had against Chuck Liddell and Ken Shamrock.

SOMEWHERE, P.T. Barnum had to be smiling. The Greatest Show on Earth rolled into the Wells Fargo Center yesterday afternoon, except that the attractions weren't trapeze artists, high-wire acts and whip-snapping tamers of lions and tigers and bears, oh, my. They were mixed martial artists with washboard abs and, more often than not, lots of tattoos. They also bore colorful nicknames like "The Spaniard," "El Conquistador," "Suga," "The Phenom," and "The Waterboy," and they made their entrances to blaring rock music and even louder screams from an aroused audience that numbered in the thousands.

Your interest level doesn't really matter. Nor does it matter if you haven't got a clue who they are: Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center will still play a large part in shaping the landscape of the Ultimate Fighting Championship light-heavyweight world, as small as that world may appear now in the palms of Tito Ortiz and Rashad "Suga" Evans. The winner at UFC 133 becomes the No. 1 contender for the title. Saturday becomes a day to forget for the loser. With the promotion returning to Philadelphia for the second time, UFC president Dana White toured the city a few weeks ago and bragged about the "stacked" card that his sport always brings.

The NBA has laid off about 114 people over the last two days in a planned cost-cutting move, a league spokesman said Thursday. The laid-off employees represent about 11 percent of the league office workforce in New York, New Jersey, and internationally. The layoffs are "not a direct result of the lockout but rather a response to the same underlying issue; that is, the league's expenses far outpace our revenues," said NBA spokesman Mike Bass . The cuts would "reduce our costs by $50 million across all areas of our business.
