Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, USA.
This event was expected to feature Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones' first title defense against former Light Heavyweight Champion Rashad Evans, but during his win over Mauricio Rua, Jones tore a ligament in his right hand, which was expected to keep him sidelined until late 2011. Jones is expected to make his first title defense against Quinton Jackson on September 24, 2011 at UFC 135 and the winner of that fight will face Rashad Evans should he win against DAvis.
Nick Pace was originally slated to take on Michael McDonald at this event, before McDonald was pulled to replace Norifumi Yamamoto for a UFC 130 bout with Chris Cariaso. Ivan Menjivar would later step in to face Pace at this event.
A bout between Featherweight Champion José Aldo and Chad Mendes was previously rumored to take place at this event. However, Aldo is expected to be out until October recovering from injuries and Mendes will remain on the card and face Rani Yahya.
Riki Fukuda was scheduled, to take on Rafael Natal, but was forced out of the bout due to an injury suffered to his left knee in a car accident and replaced by Costantinos Philippou.
UFC 133 will feature two preliminary fights live on Spike TV.
