11:40 AM ET 02.13 | Late Wednesday night, news surfaced that a leg injury had forced former light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans out of his scheduled matchup with Daniel Cormier in the co-main event of UFC 170 later this month. Immediately after the announcement, UFC officials confirmed that Cormier would be pulled from the card and UFC 170 would be official with 10 fights. Chael Sonnen, who is always down for a fight, offered to step up on short notice to allow Cormier to remain on the card, but the UFC did not seem interested in the offer. Instead, they will target a rebooking for a couple of months down the line. According to reports, UFC CEO Lorenzo Ferttita wants to keep the Evans vs. Cormier fight planned and is likely to rebook the bout for UFC 172.
