“UFC 133: Evans vs. Davis” has been officially announced for August 6 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia with a headlining matchup between light heavyweight contenders Rashad Evans and Phil Davis, plus Rich Franklin vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Vitor Belfort vs. Yoshihiro Akiyama.
Tickets for UFC 133 go on sale to UFC Fight Club members on June 8, UFC newsletter subscribers on June 9, and the general public on June 10.
“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 in the announcement. “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.”
