Not agreeing with his actions by any stretch but the whole TUF "team" concept isn't really designed to foster a true team mentality. Also being as it's "reality" certain elements of the show never make it to air because they wouldn't ruin any of the potential drama.
You can pretend it's a gray area all you want. It's not.
He had a choice to go on TUF. He jointed a team. He then had a choice let the fights happen as they happen, or to rat out guys on his team. He ratted out guys on his team. He's a snitch, undeniably.
He can win all three titles in the UFC, and he'll always be a snitch without integrity.
If you were one of the injured fighters he ratted out, you wouldn't be trying to make excuses for him.
Because that's exactly what you're doing.
All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.
