With Rashad Evans coming off a layoff that lasted over a year, I believe he could have ring rust and be tentative to engage. Tito Ortiz is coming off a big win against Ryan Bader a few weeks back. In this fight I look for Tito to come out aggressive and push the pace. With the ring rust stacking up against Rashad, I think Tito has a really good chance, but I think Rashad will do enough to earn a decision win.
In another entertaining fight in my opinion, Vitor Belfort takes on Yoshihiro Akiyama in a battle between two prolific strikers. I think Vitor has the edge in this fight, although you can never count anyone out in an MMA fight. Coming off a TKO loss to Anderson Silva, I look for Vitor to come out guns blazing and try to finish the fight as fast as possible.
