UFC's Rashad Evans Flashes a CAST!! Gets Heavy Metal Repair
8/18/2011 10:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Former UFC champ Rashad Evans has some new hardware ... as in the metal pins he had inserted to repair his injured right hand!
The ex light-heavyweight title holder walked out of Katsuya in Hollywood last night sporting a big ole cast on his hand and wrist -- and said he got some pins to put his thumb "back in place." Our UFC sources say it's a "really bad sprain."
It's unclear if the injury is directly related to his recent victory over Tito Ortiz.
Speaking of Ortiz ... you gotta hear what Rashad had to say about that "leaked" twitpic of Tito's junk.
10:40 AM: Rashad's rep tells us he dislocated his thumb during the Ortiz fight, and says it will be healed in three weeks.
