No one knew the exact injury. He probably didn't even have an ACL injure. I just said I was pretty much the only one to talk about his knee injury.

And Dana didnt confirm it at all, he downplayed it. Most people thought they were talking about Cain's shoulder.

Dana confirmed Cain was injured. He kinda implied that both fighters had suffered a setback aswell. This conversation is going nowhere.

As is this entire thread.

I actually heard about this, and posted about it before the fight.

I heard Cain had a knee injury going into the fight...people said I was full of shit...but we all know that's never the case.
Not impossible? Name me one fighter who went into a fight with a torn ACL a few days before hand.

Dont the UFC have medicals before the fights? Surely that would have picked up something as major as a torn ACL.

Yes, this is why I don't buy the "My ribs were broken" thing either, any trained doctor should be able to find broken ribs and if any doctor lets you go into a cage fight where you could very well be kicked, punched, or kneed into those broken ribs then he should be fired and banned forever. Not to mention the amount of pain you'd be in and the impact it'd have on your breathing, I don't believe anyone has ever fought with broken ribs.

Of course you can go into the cage with major injuries.

What the hell do you think the Medicals consist of? X-rays and MRIs on the whole body?

Unless you had a bone protruding through your skin they wouldn't know.

The physical is more for brain activity, they check blood for disease and pathogens, and your heart.

Basically basic stuff.

That said NO ONE has gone into the cage with a cracked skull, Tito.

Either way JDS still won their first fight. Then finished Mir and defended his title. Thats more than Cain did. End of story til the next fight happens.
