Japan-MMA has the story:

-They requested an official doctors certificate and CT scan showing the injury.
-They requested Roger Gracie to come to Japan to be examined by WVR's doctor

On both these points Roger Gracie has failed to comply and WVR/Sengoku are considering penalties.

I've been critical of Roger in the past and thought maybe I was being too hard on the guy, but I have to say this looks really really weak. Travis Wiuff is not that dangerous -- unlike previous duckees Josh Barnett and Jeff Monson, he's a perfect step-ladder for Gracie at this early point in his career.

This is unfortunate, seems to constantly duck fighters. I don't know why he'd duck Wiuff, as I believe he could sub Travis in the first rather easily. Wiuff is a tough fighter, but I don't think he could handle the BJJ skills of Roger.

I've got to believe that if any of this was true, Roger would be excommunicated from the Gracie tribe. We're talking about a class of worriors who refuse to tap and consider broken limbs a penence for allowing themselves to be placed in a submission.

If he's faking- there is no way that he's got the support of his family behind him.

not entirely. the gracies wouldnt want everyone to think that they have a faker in the midst so they might back em until the rumors die down
