UFC Releases Statement After Rashad Evans Denied License For UFC 206
By FCF Staff
After being denied a license to compete at UFC 205 earlier this month, Rashad Evans has also been pulled from a scheduled bout with Tim Kennedy on December 10th.
Recently the UFC posted the following statement:
UFC has been notified by the Ontario Athletic Commission that it has declined to approve a license for middleweight Rashad Evans, based on the recent medical issue that prohibited him from competing at UFC 205 in New York City. As a result, Evans’ rescheduled bout against Tim Kennedy, set for UFC 206 in Toronto on Saturday, December 10, has subsequently been cancelled.
The UFC organization takes the health and safety of all athletes competing under the UFC banner very seriously and has encouraged Evans to take all the appropriate time to consult with his physicians and properly evaluate his medical status prior to scheduling any future bouts.
After Evans was denied a license for UFC 205, the veteran fighter reported that he’s healthy, and that his fans shouldn’t be concerned.
