I don't think it is so.
I do think this announcement is rushed and not well thought.
If Vitor already had a scheduled fight, they could have taken into account, as there's not enough time to have him drop so close to the fight.
But I guess it had to happen some day, and yesterday was as good as any.
I feel for Vitor, but am glad it happened.
it is time for the old lion to think about the remainder of his life, and forget the abuses his old body would take if he continbued through this path.
