Loki hates when I post news, but here it is.

So who fights Rashad. How about Tito or Machida?

Did you beat me? I posted this on my facebook page.

July 12, 2011  10:53 PM ET

Tito I guess.

July 12, 2011  11:02 PM ET

Boom!

WOW.

Evans cannot be happy about this (to say the least).

The main event injury curse continues.

Evans/machida is a better matchup if this fight is supposed to have title implications. Im curious how it will play out being made on short notice and the outcome of their first fight.

So being in the UFC Main Event is kind of like being on the cover of Madden isn't it???

Looks like no one wants to fight Rashad....

I think that ultimately it will be evan vs machida 2.....machida is probably working out a nice payday for the short notice fight

July 13, 2011  11:26 AM ET

Reports are coming out that this is all but official. The first betting lines that I saw was machida -305, evans +245. That is a ridiculous. who is really gonna bet that? I cant say that I dont agree with the heavy favorite but dont the sportsbooks want you to bet

why would you throw your money away on evans?

I am upset about this, I was wanting to watch Evans vs Davis match. Tito is too old to take on a short notice and it wouldnt be a good idea for Evans to come back from being out a very long time to fight Machida who just Ko his last fight a month or two ago.

Here are a couple that comes to mind and some of theses names may already have fights booked but,

Ryan Bader could take a short notice fight
Jason Brilz lost his last 2
Rich franklin would be a good tune up fight
James Tuna came of a loss
Vladimir came off a nice Ko
Matt Hamill could take a short notice fight.

My only point I am trying to make is that Evans needs a good tune up fight. I think fighting Machida would be a huge mistake since he has been out of the cage for a very very long time. Once he gets his tune up fight then give him a top elite fighter to fight.
