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.

    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

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