2 more bite the dust for UFC85

You can add Ryo Chonan and Neil Wain to the growing list of fighters who have had to pull out of UFC85. There’s still no word on why Chonan is out, but considering how he was broke two months ago, I have to figure it’s something serious to prevent him from getting back in the Octagon. Chonan was going to face off against Roan “Mr Choke” Carneiro, who is 2-1 in the Octagon with wins over Tony DeSouza and Rich Clementi. He’s being replaced by Kevin “The Fire” Burns, some dude with a paltry 4-1 pro record who barely seems to exist as far as the internet is concerned.

UFC virgin Neil Wain was supposed to take on Antoni Hardonk, but got his nose busted in training. So he’s out and the “Manic Hispanic” Eddie “Dirty” Sanchez is in. If only Eddie’s fighting style was as awesome as his nicknames. He couldn’t even make a three round drubbing of Soa Palelei at UFC 79 entertaining.

  • Im betting a soccer riot erupts at this event or Dana White transforms into Satan 87 is so cursed.

    I’m not sure what to think of Chonan. His flying heel hook against Anderson Silva is legendary, but I nearly fell asleep during his last fight.

  • Aaannon says:

    Maybe you fell asleep, PW, because he was fighting Karo “I love to go to decisions” Parysian.

  • Michael says:

    I feel sorry for Chonan, in his blog he said that he really needs some money. And that was 3 months ago.

  • Jemaleddin says:

    Man, when Joe Rogan gets face-herpes and finger-AIDS, people are going to realize that it’s no good being involved in UFC 85. I’m afraid to watch for fear of eye-cancer.

  • undisputed1972 says:

    UFC 85 is a farce. With the many big name ‘casualties’ already missing from this event I was looking forward to seeing Chonan. Instead we get some 5 fight muppet to play the role of cannon-fodder for Carneiro.

    I should never have bought tickets so early. Chuck vs. Shogun would have been stellar. Not any more. With another week and a half to go, further disappointment is almost guaranteed.

    We’ll be left with Marcus Davis shadow-boxing by 7th June.

  • pauli says:

    now, be fair.

    he’ll be shadow boxing while a pregnant woman sprays him with mist.

  • goo says:

    Weird that Eddie Sanchez is fighting now, because that big X made me think that picture of Chonan was in fact of the “Manic Hispanic”.

  • garth says:

    eddie should use the nickname “filthy”. a lot more accurate.

  • godzillad says:

    Eddie’s nickname actually used to be ”Dirty” back in KOTC. If you don’t believe me, ask Jordan Breen or go look up the Sherdog article about him replacing Coleman at UFC 63.

    YEAH I WON!!!!!

    Anyways Chonan`s buddy Mayhem will earn big YEN in Japan and will lend some $, Chonan will stay in US to train few more months, he will get another chance to fight in the Octagon… So

    Quick post

    Chonan just have updated his Japanese blog to tell the cancelation to fight at UFC85. He got hurt his rib during the training session according to his words.

    The pulling off from the fight sux, but He also aplogizes fans, and the opponent.

    Hope he would get well soon.
