After his rousing draw with Beneil Dariush, which occurred at UFC 216 in October of 2017, Evan Dunham was sent to the hospital by ring-side physicians. Though Dunham absorbed considerable damage in this fight, he didn’t actually want to board an ambulance, as he’d had a very hard time getting the UFC to cover the ambulance bill after his 2013 scrap with Gleison Tibau.
All the same, Evan Dunham heeded the advice of the UFC’s doctors, and boarded an ambulance to the hospital, keen to make sure he didn’t sustain any serious damage in his fight with Dariush. Two fights later, he’s now “dealing with collections” as the UFC has still failed to pay his ambulance bill for that fight.
Evan Dunham shared his frustration about this situation on Twitter.
“Dealing with collections right now,” Dunham said in his first Tweet on the matter. “UFC never paid my ambulance bill from two fights ago. Even though I sent the bill in multiple times to whoever is supposed to be handling it.”
“Funny thing is that I didn’t want to go in the ambulance in the first place,” he added in a second Tweet, touching on the lesson he learned after his fight with Tibau. “Because it took them so long to pay the bill from the Tibau fight, but they insisted. One more fight and I am done.”
As Evan Dunham suggests in this second Tweet, his next fight will be his last. The long-time UFC lightweight will hang up the gloves after his showdown with fellow veteran Francisco Trinaldo. The fight goes down on September in 22 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
