UFC 77: Doug Evans out against Jorge Gurgel

Boy that was fast.

Just a few days ago we passed along news that Jorge Gurgel and Doug Evans would clash in a lightweight preliminary bout at UFC 77 on October 20 in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Today, is reporting that Evans is injured and will not be ready in time for the bout.

It's unclear at this time who will replace Evans against Gurgel. For now it's just Gurgel vs. the ultra-tough and very formidable, TBA.

We will, of course, keep you posted when the 155-pound opponent is announced. In the meantime, check out the latest UFC 77 fight card here.

The pay-per-view event is headlined by the 185-pound title fight between UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva and former division king, Rich Franklin.
