Following his UFC 133 loss, Yoshihiro Akiyama's future in the Octagon is currently uncertain.

That said, UFC President – Dana White – admitted that he’s not sure on what lies ahead for the Japanese fighter. However, his loss is definitely a wake-up call.

After UFC 133 Victory, Rashad Evans Eyes Title Shot

“I would prefer to [win the title] from Jones." --- Rashad Evans, UFC Light Heavyweight fighter

While many thought that Rashad Evans might be rusty after 14 months of being in the sideline, many were surprised on how he was able to dismantle Tito Ortiz at UFC 133 last Saturday.

The latter stepped in to face Rashad Evans, after Jon Jones and Phil Davis withdrew from the bout due to injury. And now that he gained victory, “Suga” want to reclaim his title from former friend and teammate Jon Jones. That is if the current light heavyweight champion will be able to defend his belt against Quinton “Rampage” Jackson at UFC 135 in September.

“I would prefer to [win the title] from Jones. You think I’m cocky? He’s for-real cocky. He’s like go-to-sleep-praising-himself cocky. I would love to teach him a lesson. I know where Jon’s weak and he knows where I’m weak. So we’ll see who covers those [weak areas] first. If he makes it past Rampage, I’ll have a chance to do that. I think Rampage should train in my camp for this fight.”

UFC 133 Results: White Talks About Evans’ Performance, Hallman’s Trunks

Written on August 08, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Dana White disclosed all his thoughts with regards to the UFC 133 results -- Evans' performance and Hallman's disgusting short-shorts.

Just after the UFC 133 event last Saturday, UFC President – Dana White – had an interview with Karyn Bryant from MMA Heat – in which he clearly commented on some vital aspects of the show. One of which is the impressive bout performance of Rashad Evans over Tito Ortiz.

White agreed that Evans was awesome that night. “Jon Jones tweeted ‘Same old, same old’ – I don’t know what he was seeing. Same old, same old would be if Rashad came in, double leg, lay on the guy for three rounds, and won a decision,” the President stated in his interview. “That was far from the ‘same old, same old’. I’m a huge believer of ring-rust, but that might have blew my whole theory on ring-rust.”

Meanwhile, aside from praising Rashad Evans, White also commented on the trunks which Dennis Hallman wore during his fight against Brian Ebersole last Saturday. He said it was disgusting and even announced that he is serious about banning that kind of bikini bottom from the competition – not because it was too short or revealing – but because it is not appropriate to wear for a combative sport such as MMA.

"I don't live by desire, I live by dream. What I'm trying to do is climb the mountain again." --- Vitor Belfort, UFC Middleweight Fighter

In 1997, Vitor Belfort won the UFC Heavyweight Championship at 19 years old. Then in 2004, he became the Light Heavyweight king. And if he could capture another title before his career is up, Vitor Belfort could boast of earning titles in three different decades. But to do that, he must get past through Yoshihiro Akiyama at UFC 133. Moreover, Vitor Belfort is also looking for a rebound after being knocked out at UFC 126 by Anderson Silva.

If Vitor Belfort emerges victorious, he will have the reason to think of fighting for a title once more. But as of the moment, just like what he said, it is still a climb.
