That's my understanding. I still don't understand why it can't be re-examined the day before, though.

And could that pic be added to the initial post¿
Sometimes the gloves itself can cause a cut. The edges of the straps for instance.


You guys need to look closer at his eye lid because the cut is there and its visible.

The only recent cut I can see is maybe his hair. As far as Wandi fighting in his place I can't see it having the same impact on the rankings as the original fight. There's no way Wandi get's a shot at the belt if he wins unlike Gus more then likely would have. Plus this puts Gus on Dana's list of pussies ducking fights regardless of it being true or not, it's Dana logic.

Wandy isn't fighting either it was an april fools joke. Some training partner of Gus is taking his spot.

...Legit cut in a nasty spot. Mousasi is NOT the striker you wanna face with a cut like that. Gegard is capable of brutally ending the fight via doctor stoppage. Not worth the risk, especially if JBJ is in his sights. Sucks, but smart decision to pull the plug by UFC brass...

This. Plus he was examined by 3 doctors. They say he cant fight, he probably shouldnt. However I do think based on the pic he should have a 4th, 5th and 6th opinion.

In this situation some people are only satisfied if you throw every doctor at the problem until one of them says yes. Dana is throwing a fit because his headliner is going up in smoke and now it's another Mousasi vs can match.

I don't have any issue with Gust pulling from the fight. That's a legit cut and is in a place where it can open up again easily. He could end up losing the fight due to that cut and effectively lose his title shot. Not worth the risk at all.
