All the scandal theories - Odc K glad to find a way out..... My experience is usually that top fighters take truly immobilizing injuries seriously, and this one has a great track record of following through with his fights. But people LOVES they trash talk.....

I see Wlad as a genuine professional, I just did not understand the immediate delay on the first assessment of the injury.... More than anything disappointed for a hw scrap that actually looks exciting
