Evans Out Of Cormier Bout With Injury, Sonnen Offers To Fight On 10 Days Notice


(Insert ‘Sigh’ here.)

The injury bug has taken out next week’s UFC 170 co-main event between Rashad Evans and Daniel Cormier.

UFC officials announced the bouts cancellation just moments ago via the official UFC website:

A leg injury has forced former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans out of his UFC 170 co-main event bout with Daniel Cormier on February 22 in Las Vegas.

With the event date rapidly approaching, there will be no replacement fight, and the card – headlined by the UFC women’s bantamweight championship match between Ronda Rousey and Sara McMann – will continue with 10 bouts.

On a different note, the UFC’s go-to replacement fighter, Chael Sonnen has offered up his services on just 10-days notice.

Chael took to twitter with the following message:

@dc_mma ya know I haven’t been crazy about you attitude as of late. Daddy ain’t ready, but he’s ready enough. Feb 22 just say my name…

  1. UFC 84 Forever says:

    Sonnen is the man; you can’t even deny it anymore. He’s gonna get handled by DC’s strength though…

    Also Sonnen I bet will still take the Wand fight directly after.

    • ed bailey says:

      There’s no way Dana would let him fight that fight. He’s got a fight with Wand that I personally, can’t wait to see. Hell they already fought once! No chancing him getting hurt because with the filming of the show and the fight I’m sure UFC gets their payday.

      • UFC 84 Forever says:

        I’m definitely ready to watch Sonnen vs. Wand no question about it. I posted this on another related article, that obviously the UFC won’t let Sonnen fight DC, but you can’t fault the man for trying to take the world on.

        On that note bring on Chael vs. Wand it’s going to be awesome
