A magnitude 7.1 earthquake shook the stage Friday night at the Palms Hotel in Las Vegas during the UFC Hall of Fame induction ceremony just as inductee Rashad Evans was giving his speech.
"Oh, it's an earthquake. Oh man, I feel it. Whoa. Earthquake, baby. That's me bringing the heat," he said, as the crowd at the Palms applauded. The stage can be seen shaking in the video clip tweeted out by ESPN MMA.

Evans, who paid tribute to Niagara Wheatfield wrestling coach Bill Dixon in an interview in advance of Friday's ceremony, was captain of the wrestling team at Michigan State and went on to triumph against the biggest stars in mixed martial arts.
