It’s hard for me to determine what caused James Irvin to break his foot and pull out of his UFC85 bout against Rashad Evans. Is this the James Irvin curse? Or is this the UFC 85 curse? Perhaps this is just a double-whammy curse, but if that was the case you’d figure Irvin would just have a piano fall on him from out of the clear blue sky. While there was word that Luis Cane was gonna step in and fight Rashad Evans, the UFC has now decided to just scrap the fight entirely.
Let’s check out the score thus far:
- Shogun injured
- Chuck injured
- Goulet injured
- Kelly injured (thanks MRC54!)
- Leben jailed
- Irvin injured
- Rashad pulled.
- fell out of cage in Strikeforce vs Bobby Southworth, injured leg, causing No Contest (thanks Dru Down!)
- knee exploded vs Thiago Silva
- got illegally KO’d by Luis Cane
- broken foot
I’m pretty sure there’s some other shit that I’ve forgotten about both these bad luck magnets. Some help, guys?
