Yes. A cut that size doesn't heal within a week. It just closes superficially to stop the bleeding, but it's still vulnerable and prone to open again. And, if I remember right, in the same interview the gif was taken from Gustafsson stated that he still was ready to and wanted to fight, but the doctors wouldn't let him.
