This card has had some bad luck. I just wonder what happens to Jason Lambet now.

well cane didnt look bad against Irvin, and i believe he was on his way to winning that fight, however still a big step up for him, and i see him loosing but if he can take this fight that would be huge for him (ala Houston alexander).....

This i basically what happened with rashads first opponent, thiago, as soon as they got chuck they scratched the fight, now chuck is out so the put irvin, now irvin is out so they scracth another fight to get cane. this fight has been through quite a bit. rashads trainers must be going nuts

when in need of short notice fight, Call TIM BOETSCH!!!!!!

DAMNIT !!!!! i wanted Cain to get a win, especially since Irvin put up the performance of his life when Cain barely tapped him with an illigal knee, well just another wrestler vs striker, booo GO CAIN

Talk about a bad luck card. Everyone on this card has seemed to get hurt. Cane is crazy to step up and take this bout. I think Rashad takes this one pretty easily. But I thought he'd take the fight with Irvin pretty easy also. So looks like Rashad will still be undefeated after UFC 85.

WhiteWidow was a former member who would always bring up that illegal knee that Irvin took and would always take shots at him, saying he was an A level actor, but a C level fighter. Just giving you a hard time, but I think that knee would have hurt anyone pretty bad...

Let me try and put this into perspective.

What started out as Shogun Rua vs. Chuck Liddel has somehow managed to morph itself into Baha Cane vs. Rashad Evans?

That is insane.

cane vs irvin??
come on!!!!
it's not too late to make this a freebie on spike tv
if i was evans i would jus withdrawl period,
push the marquadt vs leites fight in the main card slot
i can't believe they couldn't get alexander nor hamill to fight on this card
feel bad for lambert i hope they push his back to july,
but irvin vs cane on the main card?? i think more fans with save the money not buy this and instead buy ufc 86 and afflication in july

Evans vs. Cane, not Irvin vs. Cane..... I am sure you just goofed.

I kinda dig this match up a little more, that is a little more then Evans/Irvin I think Cane woulda beat Irvin anyways. and scraping the Lambert fight is also fine by me not a fan of Lambert.
I don't know maybe I'm alone on this but I think it just got a little better.

I would prefer Rashad vs. Houston Alexander

and since Leben is out early, might as well kick Jason Day out and put Leben back in

lets see
irvine hurt against thiago silva
against cane in dec he gets needed will down can't continue
now gets hurt can't fight, man this guy has bad luck
feel bad for england fans, they lost the lambert fight as well as the kelly vs goulet fight.
wonder of the ufc will add one, hello dan hardy???????
i see lambert fighting in july, with the training and all, i am thinking the ufc will let him fight asap if not in ufc 85 then maybe the next. lambert vs alexander would be good.

I was just on UFC.com and they have just announced that the Leites / Marquardt fight has been added to the main card and they still have Cane fighting Lambert on the undercard. It looks like Rashad isn't even gonna be fighting anymore. http://www.ufc.com/index.cfm?fa=eventDetail.FightCard&eid=1109
