UFC Prez: Thiago's Scan May Have Been Mistake

3/26/2010 6:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dana White -- the President of the UFC -- says he thinks the irregularity found in Thiago Alves' recent CAT scan may have been a mistake ... and the UFC fighter is on his way to a specialist to get more answers.

Dana White: Click to view!

In the video, White claims that CAT Scans can sometimes be "inaccurate," adding "I'm hoping it's a mistake and he can continue to fight ... he's one of the best fighters in the world."

White tells TMZ, Alves appears to be fine ... and the fighter feels so bad about the last-minute drama that he texted White an apology ... an apology that White claims was completely unnecessary.

Ultimate Fighting is ghetto. There is no art, no science. Just blood on blood. I'm just waiting for the first Doo Koo Kim of Ultimate Fighting to make the Ultimate TKO. Guys like Dana White strive for 'legitimacy' to such a degree that I'm reminded of the porn industry constant search for 'crossover branding' and 'mainstream appeal'. Boxing is still, and will always be, the sweet science. Manny Pacquiao has more talent, grit, and smarts than Tito Ortiz has in his left testicle.

What you talking no art, no science. Boxing is two men standing infront of each other with only two thing they can do. Throw a punch or defend a punch. MMA you have to defend punches kicks
takedowns and submissions. Boxing is only one aspect of MMA and its dying a slow death. The only two big fighters in Boxing wont fight each other. What kind of sport is boxing ??????????

If he is showing signs of misactives..he is over and that must be why they are peeking inside.Just THINK if TMZ could see inside you? than they could report whatever thought you had.CAT scan MRI scan?Or digial computer outside microscan of the face and blood flowing can all show some of the problem.A smart brain interactive computer loop could show if the brain is misfireing and it is the best way to see any damages that affect fuction.Those Cat scans and MRI are way old school and can do damages themselfs.EBS DBS subject way back in the late 1960`s and than MK ultra Subject.If he has a busted vein or artery in there leave it alone as any given person has up 20 tummors at any given time..the body`s anti-bodys kills them if the person is healthy and the mutations are not to bad they will heal with the right food and actives.If you kick someone in the head for a living and they do the same who can you blame when your arterys go bust.

Why does Dana White continue to needlessly gossip about medical issues with his fighters? Remember when he started blabbing in 2009 that Brock Lesnar "is close to death" and then it turns out he's fine? While Dana has done a tremendous job to build up his sport, his maturity issues will haunt him and his organization as it continues to grow.
