It’s being reported that the New York Commission has denied Evans a license, as a result of the findings of a MRI. The 37 year-old fighter has told MMA Fighting.com, however, that additional tests he took show he is “healthy”, and that he doesn’t want anyone “worrying” about him. Evans didn’t disclose any specific information, however, regarding the medical issue.
So, that’s obviously unfortunate news. Kennedy has told MMA Junkie that the UFC has asked him to make weight for the card, in case they need to tap him as a replacement fighter.
