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…
