    I have a theory that I don’t think is too far fetched. When Whitaker saw kelvins ringworm or whatever the hell that stuff was, either through the Embeddeds or the actual weigh ins, he used the most reasonable emergency exit excuse he could to get the hell out of the fight.

    Nobody seems upset about the situation and it’s kind of weird. Whitaker looked jacked and ready to go. Just another shit happens kind of coincidence in the UFC or did someone intentionally stop this fight?

    I will admit however that I put 0 research in to this theory and I don’t know what I’m talking about but what I do know is I wouldn’t want that man bleeding on me in a fight and I sure as hell wouldn’t have tried to RNC him.

    “Never been prepared or more ready!!! Bring it on.”

    I have an inside source in Robs camp that confirmed this a couple of days ago. Pretty spot on theory

    Rob was worried as he had already had a life threatening staph infection. Also the hernia was an existing legitimate mefical issue that he could have fought with but instead used to get out of the fight.

    I'm surprised Kelvin got sanctioned to fight with his skin looking all fucked up.

    No choice. Refuse to sanction and another state gets the cash, its the ethical choice......

    Yep that's what I thought.
    pimples are sign of std.
    If blood is on canvas and the other guy has std,
    Then you have it for life

    what a thread. whittaker went and got his gut opened up in surgery so he didn't get a small skin infection and make 500k. seems legit.

    This was the moment that got Whittaker injured out of the fight, when his son threw an object at his hernia on embedded which has now led to Whittaker getting surgery.

    How about; dehydrated weight cutter suffers bowel issues following weight cutting enemas?

    if a little ringworm on the opponent prevents Whittaker from fighting he deserves to lose the belt

    Its normal for high level athletes to fake surgery at this level.
    He was wheeled into the operating room but was never cut on.
    They just rubbed his tummy in there.

    Most likely, he had the hernia, was trying to tough it out, it aggravated during the night before, maybe due to the stress of weight cutting/press obligations, decided he couldn't fight, went to the hospital to get it dealt with.
