Yep. My thoughts exactly. What kind of doctor allows a fighter to fight with a fractured sternum and a torn cartilage?

As you say, he may have hidden it from the doctors but I dont buy that either. If you go into a fight with severe injuries and lie about it, you run the risk of invalidating your insurance. There's no way the insurance company will happily pay for fixing injuries you covered up and went ahead an fought with.

In other words... I call bullshit. If he currently has these injuries I'm betting he got them during the fight.
