It's definitely not a conspiracy because it's easy to prove someone isn't actually injured. I think that fighters used to get injured all the time, but because the UFC doesn't pay that well and healthcare is expensive, they were forced to fight anyway to get their paycheck and make money. Now that healthcare is free for them, it makes more sense to take advantage of it and postpone a fight instead of putting yourself at risk of losing because you were hurt; losing a fight would cost you bonuses, potential sponsorships, and maybe even get you cut and hurt your popularity.
