As if this card didn’t have enough problems already, James Irvin, who had originally stepped up to replaced the injured Chuck Liddell in a bout against Rashad Evans, is now sidelined with a broken foot according to UFC.com.
Stepping in for Irvin will be Luiz Cane, the light heavyweight who was disqualified earlier this year in a bout against Irvin for an illegal knee to the head on the ground. Cane was originally scheduled to face Jason Lambert on the card but has been moved up to face Evans. No word on whether they will find another opponent for Lambert or not.
I will be glad to see this card actually take place because, at this point, the whole damn thing could get canceled and it wouldn’t be a surprise to me.
