Before and after Grant revealed the injury, many mixed martial arts fans had conspiracy theories about the injury. Many fans on social media believed that the UFC had paid Grant to fall out of the fight. However, Grant responded to these people on Twitter to say that the UFC or White did not pay him any money to step out of the fight and let Pettis get the title fight.
Sorry all you conspiracy theorists. @danawhite / @ufc did not and could not pay me any amount of money to step aside.
Grant did not reveal how long he will need to recover from the concussion. White or the UFC has not said what the plans are for Grant but it would appear likely that he will get the winner of Henderson/Pettis either late this year or early in 2014.
