UFC lightweight Michael Chiesa, who trains with the 24-year-old The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18 winner, wanted to remove his name from any brewing controversy, thus adding to the question of how the injury actually happened.
@danawhite @VenezuelanVixen I hope you don't think I have any fault in this....#notguilty

Sam Sicilia Responds to Dana White's Comments on Pena:
Has she come out and said anything new about it?
I feel like there would be absolutely no reason for Dana to lie and all the reason in the world for the camp too. However Dana has been off his rocker lately so there is a chance he is but I doubt it, the injury is too severe to be a result of not warming up correctly.
If Pena came out now, after having time to cool down and reflect on what actually happened, and repeated what she told Dana, then I would believe her. But as it stands, Dana is slinging shit everywhere, with out getting to the truth of the matter first.
