Chuck injured, Rashad saved.

Today’s big rumor is brought to you by MMA Rated, who report that Chuck Liddell is off the UFC85 card with a training injury: has learned that Chuck Liddell recently injured himself and will not be fighting Rashad Evans at UFC 85 at the 02 Arena London, England, on June 7. No word on the extent of the injury and how long he will be out but plans are for both men to face each other later in the summer.

My bet is he pulled his ‘give a shit’ muscle. The muscle was seriously weakened after it was announced that Mauricio “Shogun” Rua was removed as his opponent and replaced by Rashad “The Main Event Ruiner” Evans. Who knows what could have caused Liddell’s muscle to finally snap, but my bet is the opportunity to spend the summer having hot girls sit on his face rather than training non-stop to fight some guy no one gives a shit about.

    Wouldn’t be the first time he tweaked it

    It’d be funny if they cancel T-Silva vs Mendes and make Silva fight Rashad again…

    I also distinctly remember Chuck saying that he was trying to get the original fight shifted from London when it was first talked about.

    That card has gradually gone from really-cool-sounding (Chuck – Shogun / Brock Lesnar) to a bag of shite since it was first announced. The gf was gonna get us tickets, but I told her not to bother when Rashad was announced as Chuck’s opponent.

    Rashad had a good chance of winning.

    Better yet, I think he would have won. Chuck hits hard but Rashad has never shown a weak chin….

    It was a terrible style match up dude, Chuck is very hard to take down and Rashads takedowns have never been much good.

    Just hope the UFC finds a better main event as I couldn’t give a fuck about it since Shogun pulled out

    Injured = Drug Rehab.

    Man I forgot this was even a real event, after Shogun departed my interest went with him, and I live in England and was going….

    I was looking forward to seeing Chuck sprawl n brawl rashad’s face in. Maybe see Rashad try something new. Oh well, can’t say I’m heartbroken, but it leaves a real big question as to why I want to buy this PPV….they better pull something outta their asses, cause I don’t want to see them label the fights that were on the undercard as the Main Event.

    rashad’s takedowns are all right, even though tito pretty much stuffed him their whole fight. it would have definitely been boring as shit unless he tried to trade with chuck.

  • andres

    Woah no one talks shit about chuck haha purty much rashads chin hahaha chucks fought real men and knocked them allout u get some kat named rashad and he aint gonna get knocked by chuck now fuck that’s gay silvas turn!

    “some guy no one gives a shit about.”

    My fucking sentiments exactly. He’s a good fighter, just not worthy of stepping into the same cage as Chuck, that’s all.

    I think he might have developed some kind of debilitating rash from having his bag marinate in Dana’s mouth low these many yrs.

  • #1 jackal

    sounds like tim boestch needs to step in

  • Jose Bastillo

    There is a pic of it on UFC’s website, and it looks freaking disgusting…

  • threenutsinabag
