Not questioning this but do you have a source? I can only find articles stating he was injured or not fighting for unknown reasons.
When googling all I found was this thread and an article about Oleg Tinins not being cleared to fight at superior challenge 8 because of hep b.
The is my source, I can't tell how credible it is though considering I'm not Geronimo Dos Santos.
The original source is a Brazilian website
Edit: He also said "I will prove I have hepatitis B"
Lost in translation? I'm at a loss why he's so eager to prove he has it...
