Evans heading to late night television Friday

UFC light heavyweight Rashad Evans is set for late night television.

The UFC 133 main event fighter will be on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” this Friday at 12:35 a.m. ET.

A former champion, Evans looks to earn another title shot when he faces off against Tito Ortiz on August 6. Ortiz stepped in as a late replacement for an injured Phil Davis after Lyoto Machida turned down the opportunity. But that is par for the course recently for Evans.

He was originally set to face off against champion Jon Jones after defeating Quinton “Rampage” Jackson at UFC 114. However, an injury forced Jones out of the contest and now Evans must once again earn his shot at the belt.

UFC 133 is set for Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on August 6. Alongside Evans vs. Ortiz, middleweights Vitor Belfort and Yoshihiro Akiyama will duel in the evening’s co-featured fight.
