    Attila Vegh tells MMA Poland that he's totally healthy and that Bellator asked him to sit out so they could do the Emanuel Newton/King Mo rematch on the Bellator PPV.

    Follow the link to read the brief article as they continue to dig into the story, Ariel and a bunch of others are tweeting about it.

    Here's another one I saw retweeted by a bunch of MMA writers...



    Interesting to see where this goes and what comes out of this.

    Wow, this is some pretty shady shit man. Why would they think this is a good idea, especially since it sounds like Vegh didn't want any part of it.

    They had to use that King Mo/Newton II Rematch to hype the PPV, simple as that.. Veigh should have fought Newton and King Mo should have taken Rampage.
    Fedor Emelianenko is the Greatest P4P MMA fighter to ever walk the earth, hands down.

    Bellator challenges report alleging Attila Vegh isn't injured, being forced to sit for promotional purposes
    In response to the interview, Bellator has released a statement and a medical report from Vegh's doctor with information they claim directly challenges the aforementioned translated statements. They further assert the interview was incorrectly translated and insist Vegh himself has distanced himself from the translated comments.

    The full statement from Bellator is as follows:

    Numerous websites yesterday posted a story regarding Attila Vegh and statements he allegedly made to a reporter while in Poland. The interview was done in Slovakian, through a reporter speaking Polish, and a number of US websites published the story with inaccurate and misleading information.

    Please see the attached medical report to this email, a doctor's report provided to Bellator by Attila's doctor detailing his injury and instructing him to do nothing for 2 months.

    Additionally, Attila has confirmed that his statements were not translated correctly and were not accurate. Attila was fully aware that Bellator made numerous attempts to schedule his world title defense vs. Emmanuel Newton, and that his injury prevented that bout from occurring and that Bellator was going to schedule an interim world title fight because of the delays.

    Attila will be facing the winner of the Newton vs. Mo Interim World Title fight in early 2014.
    And if you want beef, then bring the ruckus
