Breaking News: Rashad Evans is out of UFC 170 due to injury

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans injured a knee in training and his bout at UFC 170 against unbeaten Daniel Cormier scheduled for Feb. 22 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas has been canceled. 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. UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta said he did not have details on the injury, but said doctors told him that Evans needed four weeks of rehabilitation. He said UFC officials are looking at potentially adding the fight to UFC 172 on April 26 in Baltimore.
