“I’ve been having a good number of conversations with Tito. The prior neck injury was disturbing, but we’ve gotten past that. The fracture was really disturbing because of the potential for paralysis under a worse-case scenario. We’re doing a pretty exhaustive series of tests to see if he’s fine, because we want to be 100 percent sure.
“It’s one thing to have a fighter come back from a knee injury or a shoulder injury, but the neck and head, I’d rather err on the side of being overly cautious than rush and something happens. We need to be really careful.”

At 39-years-old, the former UFC light-heavyweight champion, still wants to test himself inside the Bellator cage.
