Liddell Off UFC 85, Irvin Could Fight Evans



I knew it all along lol:D

Would make a good fight. I think Irvin wins via something crazy and out of the blue.:)

Anyone find it a bit weird that the UFC felt the need to post a picture of Liddell's injured hamstring? When they normally announce that a fighter has been pulled off a card due to an injury it doesn't normally include a picture of it. I mean where's the picture/x-rays of Serra's back or Shogun's knee or all of the other fighters that had to pull out of a fight due to an injury. It's almost as if they knew people would think that they wouldn't buy the injury, so they felt they needed to post a picture of it.



When Stephan Bonnar broke his hand or arm (can't remember) and couldn't fight they showed X-rays of it.

Why can't they move one of the stacked LHW bouts from UFC 84 to 85???

Either: Tito Ortiz vs. Lyoto Machida OR Wanderlei Silva vs. Keith Jardine

Silva/Jardine would make more sense because it could be a co-co-main event.

UFC 84 and 85 are only a couple of weeks apart, so I wouldn't see how it would mess up their training (they'd get more time).

It's all over the place now and to offset losing Liddell, the UFC is planning on adding more fights to the card (13 fights total) to make it up to the fans who already got tickets. UFC 85 Article at MMA Weekly

-Nate Marquardt vs. Thales Leites
-Thiago Tavares vs. Matt Wiman
-Marcus Davis vs. Mike Swick

-Neil Wain vs. Antoni Hardonk

UFC 85 Bouts (unannounced):
-Rashad Evans vs. James Irvin
-Ryo Chonan vs. Roan Carneiro

I mentioned this in the Leben/Bisping rumor thread, but while adding that fight would boost ticket sales simply to see Bisping, I don't think it'd do much for PPV sales.

If they wanted to keep it a PPV and still make respectable numbers, couldn't they add Lesnar and market it to the WWE people?

One of the only fights that I would consider main event worthy that has a chance of happening is if Henderson would move back up to 205 and him and Rashad would fight.

wise decision for chuck to opt out of this fight ,Loosing to Rashad would probably mean the end for him as a serious threat anymore.

Damn they got a pic of Chucks leg on UFC.com.



That is freakin nasty....I actually thought it was the Cloverfield monster at first. :fragend00

I just wonder, at his age....How long is it going to take for him to get back to 100%. Severe hamstring injuries like that are rough on young bucks in their prime....Chuck does not really fall into that category anymore.
"Training" eh? LOL Probably slipped & fell off the bar while grinding with some chick....Yes Chuck...everyone has seen those types of after-party pics from you. ;)

This is a shame. Plus if Rashad had pulled off the upset, we could have heard Mike Goldberg rip off and ruin one of the great moments in sports history by yelling out "Do YOU BELIEVE....in MIRACLES? YES." while somewhere out there Al Michaels' head would explode.

Sorry to hear that mate. They cover themselves by putting "Fight Card subject to change" on advertising and tickets. Ive been burned too, twice Ive bought Cage Rage tickets because Zelg Galesic was on the card and both times he pulled out :(



Are you serious? I always thought that, that small print only applied to the undercard. They have to make an exception in this case! I'd dare say 50% of people who bought the ticket are like myself and only bought it to see Chuck! There is no way in hell, I'm letting them charge me for a Werdem v Vera Main event!

Ouch, this card was looking bad as is. Now that Chuck is out there is no way I'll pay for a PPV.

Has it been confirmed free on Spike?

Just called the ticket operator and was told that I cant get my money back! That is complete BS! I'm gonna start my own fight promotion and as the main event announce i'll have Chuck Liddell, Mayweather, Calzaghe, De La Hoya, Anderson Silva, Roy Jones and GSP all square off in a last man standing battle royal! Undoubtably sell a load of tickets. Then i'll refuse to refund when all of those guys pull out!!

LOL! In fairness to the guyl I spoke to! He didnt have a clue what I was talking about with Liddell etc. The UFC is probably one of a hundred show they sell tickets for. I'm sure once the dust has cleared on this story in a week or so, I will be able to get my money back!

Yeah that totally sucks but I would love to see Irvin destroy Evans too so not to much of a loss.

Cuts O Meat

I'd like to see Evans fight Jardine, but not as the main event.



they are on the same team and are training partners for each other... wont ever happen out side of the TUF 2 battle where Evans dropped Jardine instatly and then used his wrestling to grind out the next 10 minutes as Jardine threw some interesting combos that ****ed up Rashad but was to little to late as Rashad dominated the fight.
