Just think: If not for a completely unexpected injury, you’d all be watching Tito Ortiz‘s big comeback tonight — or not watching it, depending on your current interest level in Tito Ortiz.

Heading into tonight’s bouts, it feels strangely like we’ve been here before… we’ve got drama surrounding Anthony Johnson’s weight, fighters promising to eschew their full range of talent in favor of standing and banging, and of course the redo of Garcia and Jung’s epic battle. With all of the variables that unfold in a fight it’s practically impossible to predict how a fight will go down, but that doesn’t mean we won’t irresponsibly try. Here’s a look at some of tonight’s fights and how history may play a role in their outcome.

All fighters hit their marks last night at the weigh-ins for UFC Fight Night: Nogueira vs. Davis, which goes down this evening at the Key Arena in Seattle. Despite the recent rumors of Anthony Johnson swelling up to 230 pounds before his training camp, Johnson arrived at 171 pounds and looked perfectly healthy in the process. Afterwards, an elated Rumble jumped on Twitter to share the good news: “I made weight so all u fuckin haterz can eat a mutha fuckin dick. Never doubt ME!!!

Thanks for thinking of us, AJ! Full UFC Fight Night 24 weigh-in results are after the jump…

7 Reasons to Watch ‘UFC Fight Night: Nogueira vs. Davis’ This Saturday

UFC Fight Night 24 Antonio Rogerio Nogueira Phil Davis Dan Hardy Anthony Johnson

Just one week after the UFC blew through Newark, the big show lands at the Key Arena in Seattle for UFC Fight Night: Nogueira vs. Davis. Besides the four-fight main card, which kicks off at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT on Spike TV, UFC Fight Night 24 boasts a compelling undercard that features heavyweight contenders, exciting young prospects, TUF vets, and at least one Internet forum superstar. I’m not saying this is a better event than UFC 128 — but if you ask me, there are more reasons to be genuinely curious. For example…

Will Phil Davis break out? “Mr. Wonderful” is a perfect 4-0 in the Octagon, and is coming off a wicked Submission of the Night performance over Tim Boetsch at UFC 123. But let’s be honest — Lil’ Nog is a huge step up in competition, especially on relatively short notice. Nogueira was most recently outpointed by Ryan Bader, another young fighter with a strong wrestling base, which has to be encouraging for Davis coming into this fight. If Davis can avoid getting torn up by Nogueira’s superior striking and leave with a victory, it launches him into title-contender territory. Not bad for a guy who made his pro debut two-and-a-half years ago.

Will Anthony Johnson make weight? Both Johnson and Dan Hardy are promising a stand-up bash fest with none of that lovey-dovey stuff on the ground. Yawn. I’m more interested in the recent rumors that the notoriously oversized Rumble was walking around at 235 pounds before his training camp for this fight. Will he be drained by yet another brutal cut to 170? Following a botched weigh-in against Yoshiyuki Yoshida and an ugly loss to Josh Koscheck, Johnson needs to avoid repeating either of those scenarios if he wants to keep his job. Or, you know, just move up to middleweight so we don’t have to keep bringing this up.

Among lightweight MMA fighters known for their multi-colored ring attire, Shinya Aoki and Lyle Beerbohm are easily ranked #1 and #2 in the world. And so, this matchup was inevitable. As first reported by MMA-Japan, Aoki and Beerbohm will meet in a featured bout at Strikeforce’s April 9th show.

Aoki’s last Strikeforce appearance ended in a five-round shutout at the hands of Gilbert Melendez at Strikeforce: Nashville. He won his next three MMA bouts in Japan, but most recently got knocked out in a bizarre mixed-rules bout against Yuichiro “Jienotsu” Nagashima at Dynamite!! 2010. As for Beerbohm, the Spokane-based fighter had his perfect record snapped last month in Texas, when he got out-worked by Pat Healy in one of the greatest grappling exhibitions in recent MMA history.

Tito Ortiz Discloses Injury 36 Days Early, Pulls Out of Lil’ Nog Fight

Torld witle…torld witle…no, something doesn’t sound right.”

It used to be that you could count on Tito Ortiz to show up on fight night, come up short, then cite an outrageous injury as the reason for his loss. Well, it looks like someone has taken our little ban to heart, as “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” disclosed yesterday via Twitter that he has suffered a serious concussion and received some 22 stitches, forcing him out of his bout with Lil’ Nog next month at UFC Fight Night 24.

First off, some serious questions. What the hell could have done such damage to that magnificent dome? Did the boys at NASA discover some new super-alloy? No, not likely. The clear answer here is that Tito contracted some sort of communicable skull-softening disease, likely from close contact with a known carrier. While Tito’s fellow scientists race for a cure, Dana White wasted no time in naming his replacement for the bout.
