Former Light Heavyweight Champion Tito Ortiz, who will face Rashad Evans in a rematch on Saturday night, discusses his opponent, as well as their first encounter at UFC 73. Ortiz feels he "let Evans off the hook" back in 2007 and says he plans to defeat "Suga" like he should have the first time.
Tito Ortiz: "I think the last time I kind of let (Rashad Evans) off the hook a few times that I probably shouldn't have. This time around, we'll see on Saturday night. I'm healthy, I'm strong, my weight is where I want it to be, I'm heavier than I ever was, but heavier in a great fashion of being strong. My leg strength is there, my back strength, my arms - I'm healthy. I feel good. I feel really, really good... I'm not thinking about after this. I'm not thinking about a title shot right now. I'm just thinking about getting my hand raised and having a victory over Rashad like I should have had the first time."
