Pic: Bloody motorcycle crash cancels UFC 248 bout (NSFW)

UFC President Dana White once considered a ban on motorcycles, which is not surprising when you consider what happened to Frank Mir back in 2004, as well as Jose Aldo and Kyle Kingsbury in 2012.

But it’s kinda hard to keep MMA fighters off the hog when the promotion is in bed with Harley-Davidson motorcycles, so White relented and just asked his talent to find another means of everyday transportation.

I guess Movsar Evloev didn’t get the Email.

The undefeated bantamweight took a nasty spill and as a result of his injuries, was forced to withdraw from the upcoming UFC 248 pay-per-view (PPV) event on Sat., March 7, 2020 inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Taking over for Evloev is Giga Chikadze, according to MMA Junkie, the “Contender Series” veteran who made a successful Octagon debut with a split-decision victory over Brandon Davis at UFC Fight Night 160 last September.
