MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Aug. 2, 2011) - At 9:00 p.m., Saturday, August 6, Indigo presents UFC 133, headlined by the mixed martial arts fight between Rashad Evans (20-1-1) and his sworn enemy Tito Ortiz (17-8-1), both of the U.S. After battling to a draw in 2007, the two men will trade punches again at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.
