There's no way that cut is GONE that soon. I bet someone altered that pic to make it appear as such. Any cut that requires 3 stitches to close, I would think takes longer than a week to look like it never happened.
Either way, sad to see this fight changed. Was really looking forward to seeing Gegard in the UFC. On a bright note for him, he'll get to clear his Octagon jitters against someone nowhere near the skill level of The Mauler. This should only help Gegard in his 2nd UFC fight (and beyond).
"I don't want them to like me, because when I'm in the ring, punches fly to the face. It is not a tenderness time. I am not falling in love. And he knows that when the fight starts I kick faces."
"I think you should be able to kick in the head, it’s a fun thing to do."
