You'll get your turn after all these guys behind you.
Rashad Evans has been waiting for his title shot for about a year-and-a-half now.
And the only reason for that is because he has horribly bad luck.
Rashad was supposed to fight Mauricio Rua for the title in 2010, but a knee injury to Rua prevented that. When Rua was finally healthy, Evans injured his knee, leading his teammate Jon Jones to step in and take his place.
After a major falling out, Evans was set to face Jones for the title, only for Jones to be scrapped from the card due to a hand injury. Evans fought Ortiz instead.
After Jones fought and defeated Quinton Jackson (who Evans defeated to earn the shot in the first place) the two were set to fight again. Only this time, Evans injured his hand.
So Jones fought Machida.
Now, nearly a year-and-a-half later, Evans has to re-earn his No. 1 contender status against Phil Davis to finally get the title shot he should have had in 2010.
