Evans Confirms Torn ACL, Hoping For Fall Return

March 4, 2014 9:14 am by BJPENN.COM News

“[The knee injury] was the last practice of the camp. Towards the end of practice, I was doing a wall drill, where guys are trying to hold me against the wall, and we were wrestled up and [training partner Cezar Mutante] slipped out of position and he ended up landing on my knee at a certain angle. I landed on it wrong and I messed my knee up pretty bad, and at that point that was before the conference call.”

In a recent interview with Ariel Helwani, former UFC light-heavyweight champion Rashad Evans, confirmed that the injury that caused his UFC 170 withdrawal was indeed an ACL tear.

While serious, Evans expects to return to action before winter of this year.
