Rashad Evans Dropped from UFC 85

The UFC has pulled Rashad Evens out of UFC 85, after James Irvin suffered a broken foot in training.

This contradicts earlier reports that Rashad Evans would be taking on Luis Cane on the card.

After more twists and turns than a Hollywood thriller, June 7th’s UFC 85: Bedlam show has finally been set with 11 fights. Included is a move of the intriguing middleweight clash between Nate Marquardt and Thales Leites to the pay-per-view portion of the card, and a scrapping of the Rashad Evans vs James Irvin bout due to a broken foot suffered by Irvin.

Evans, who was originally scheduled to take on Chuck Liddell on the card before ‘The Iceman’ tore a hamstring in his right leg, will not be fighting on June 7th.


  1. Oswald Gobblecock says:

    Jesus, 1st it was Liddell vs Shogun. Then Liddell vs Evans, after that Evans vs Irvin. Now Irvin gets hurt and Evans gets dropped from the card!

  2. Scooby Doo says:

    They should of just let him fight T.Silva from the start.

  3. Scooby Doo says:

    Or set up a match against R. Franklin since he's moving up to light heavywieght. And Evans is a smaller light heavy a good test for Franklin in ufc 86 or 87

  4. it's a good choice to scratch the fight. Evans has been screwed with enough, now he can regroup and focus on one opponent

  5. damn he should have just stayed with T silva

9 − = six
