Imo. Isn't it an admission a posteriori that his rib was in fact not broken by coming out with his recent "ready to unify" statement? A broken rib would take longer to heal to the point training is possible, while a bruised rib would better fit the timeline. Additionally, the UFC has gone on record stating that their doctors did not find a broken rib; they are hanging their public image on the validity of their statement, and it is reasonable to assume that official medical records were reviewed to come to that conclusion. We have no such official records regarding otherwise from Aldo, period. I don't know why he keeps talking shit to Conor or puffing his chest on social media. He signed on the dotted line in what was undoubtedly one of the most widely promoted, biggest money-fights of the sport, then failed to show. Conor, despite also being injured, did. I'm not saying he's scared, but his recent antics certainly did not do any favors for his public image. I think what would do best for him and his image would be to lie low, train hard, and speak with his fists inside the octagon; the promotion can resume when the fight is signed.
