Tito Ortiz vs. Rashad Evans at UFC 71

It's been reported in multiple outlets that Tito Ortiz will fight Keith Jardine at UFC 71 in May. I believe Tito may have even confirmed the bout himself. However, while interviewing Dana White for CBS Sportsline yesterday Dana indicated Tito's opponent at UFC 71 will be Rashad Evans so I'm not so sure he'll be fighting Jardine.

Look for my exclusive interview with Dana to appear on Sportsline in the next couple of days.
