Icon8 undisclosed injuries?

what's the reason behind these undisclosed injuries and fighters pulling out because of them? why not just tell us what the injury is? kinda annoying. gives off that quack quack feeling, you know?

Probably best not to disclose an injury in a sport where people develop game plans to exploit your weaknesses.

Pretty much. We all know how that went when Rampage gave away info about his knee issues before the Rashad fight.

It's for the same reason why hockey players only discuss lower or upper body injuries and don't get more specific. No reason to give your opponent a target

That fact still rankles me. Probably one of the biggest reasons I continue to dislike Rashad.
