Yikes! The sports world is going through some major drama these days… we're still recovering from the INSANE news about Ryan Lochte!

To make matters worse, Eva has found numerous excuses not to perform in matches, whether it be an "injury" or a "wardrobe malfunction". Some fans think this latest stunt will have her out of the ring forever.
