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.

"Jim in LV" its called and injury report numb nuts... Every sport does it... Whenever a player is injured they release that to the fans... Especially if is something big like a possible aneurysm... FYI Brock Lesnar's diverticulitis was life threatening... Dana White didn't diagnose that the Dr's did... He just passed on the info... The Dr's also said that it was nothing short of a miracle that Brock recovered as fast as he did... Most cases of DV takes close to a year to heal... There are some FACTS for you... Not just opinion!!!

Ufc might get better results if they were not so cheap.They sent this guy to a witch doctor in Haiti and the guy used a converted metal detector and waved it over his head.Then told him to wrap his head in foil for 1 week and he would be all better,oh and smoke lots of pot... heh heh

Jim, Lesnar actually was close to death. He had a fistula, that's a hole that's not supposed to be there in your organs. His was intestinal, which dumps noxious things into your body and poisons you to death quickly. He's rather lucky to be alive, and not have a permanent catheter.
