This has to be a joke. Can't be serious.

Jesus Christ! Are you at least wearing a tinfoil hat while spewing this across the board?

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

Dana has stated several times that for high profile fights (maybe all fights iirc) that you have to be checked by a UFC doc to drop out. Dan flew to Vegas and that's when the injury was assessed and determined.

There are going to be more and more fighters like this in the coming years.

When MMA wasn't as big, the fighters really NEEDED the fans. Bones doesn't need the fans, so for him it isn't about the fans. It's about money.

Ultimately that mentality will cost him money in the long run because once he's no longer undefeated no one will care about him any more.
