Rashad Evans Won’t Sit and Wait, But Title Picture Gets Muddied in the Meantime

Posted on by MMAWeekly.com Staff

Rashad Evans might just be the unluckiest guy in MMA.

Two times in a row now with a title shot just within his grasp, Evans has suffered injuries that have put on on the sidelines and out of the championship contender status he earned.

The latest forced Evans to turn down a fight with former teammate and current rival Jon Jones at UFC 140 in December.

According to UFC President Dana White, Evans wants to stay busy and will look to take another fight when his injured hand is healed and ready to go.

White also admits that the light heavyweight title picture starts to get a little muddy because nothing is guaranteed who’s next after Lyoto Machida gets his shot in Dec.

    Evans should NOT get a title shot or even think about getting title shot before he beats Shogun and Lyoto.
