Rashad Evans

This Saturday’s Middleweight contest at UFC 205 between Tim Kennedy and Rashad Evans is off.

First reported by and later confirmed by Ariel Helwani at, 37-year-old Evans has been pulled from the fight by the New York State Athletic Commission as a precautionary measure to an undisclosed medical issue which has arose during testing.

Although there has been no official word from the UFC on the situation, Kennedy has taken matters into his own hands on finding out he was without an opponent when he arrived in New York.

The former Green Beret, also 37-years-old, has immediately started calling out the biggest names in the division incuding Middleweight champ Michael Bisping on Twitter and is seemingly determined to still be a part of the landmark event this weekend.

With the UFC’s Middleweight division currently in chaos and with many fighters staking a claim to the contender spot, it will be interesting to watch this situation develop and if anyone will step up on four days notice. The world awaits.
