From Bloodyelbow's article on it:

"With regards to the medical report, there are three sticking points that absolutely need to be addressed by Bellator:

1.) The examination date is listed as April 15th, therefore the doctor instructing him "to do nothing for 2 months" means that the 6-8 weeks duration of treatment would've ended on June 15th at the latest.

2.) The doctor also says "he can't fight in the tournament". Vegh won the LHW title on February 28th, so there is no way that he could've possibly been involved in a tournament when he's already the champion. Also note that the examination date came only 2.5 weeks after Emanuel Newton won Bellator's season 8 tournament.

3.) The report does not detail anything related to a shoulder injury. Bellator's original press release (announcing King Mo/Newton 2) on August 15th stated that Vegh had injured his shoulder. The doctor's report says that Vegh had a hematoma under the right side of his chest caused by a kick from his training partner.

Basically, this statement did anything but clarify the situation. In fact, it only muddled it even further. Expect more twists and turns to come from this wild story in Bellator."

Dana does it too. He just hasn't been caught.

I read this was just a ploy to ensure King Mo gets on the ppv anyways.
