The UFC today officially announced UFC 133: Evans vs. Davis.
The show will take place Aug. 6 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia and is headlined by a light heavyweight contender’s bout between former champion Rashad Evans and top prospect Phil Davis.
“The last time we were in Philly, the fans were incredible so we are excited to head back there with a card that features three former world champions,” UFC President Dana White said. “Phil is undefeated at 9-0 and has never been more motivated for a fight, and he wants to prove that he belongs atop the light heavyweight division. Rashad is on fire. He wants his title back so badly he can taste it, but he knows before he can get his title shot he has to get through Phil. He wants to win and he wants to win impressively. This is a great fight.”
Also announced for the card is a light heavyweight bout between Rich Franklin and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and a middleweight clash between Vitor Belfort and Yoshihiro Akiyama.
