    I thought it was weird that Arroyo was so calm about it, because if I'd have to step down due to a rib injury (and they hurt bad) I would've been seriously pissed off. Still, we don't know if he was torn up over it as the whole show's edited. Dana's reaction is BS and I honestly think it's all drama.
    Matt Hughes' reaction... honestly, who gives a shit what Matt Hughes has to say these days anyway?

    Funny how Dana criticizes people who have never fought for making statements and then he turns around and does shit like talk down to fighters who are hurt. His ass never even fought a pro boxing match.

    It just looks odd since most guys take an injury that would stop them from fighting on the show very, very badly. If that injury happened to someone else in the semi's I'm sure you would have seen wide range of emotions like anger, sadness - all that.

    He was just so calm and matter of fact with not fighting that it looks weird.
    I agree, didnt seem to upset at all even after Dana said "You know how big this is for your carrer right."

    The whole thing seems suspect to me.

    if he had a cracked rib theres no way he was going to fight through it, trust me.

    nobody is going to fight with a cracked rib.

    I think he made the smart move for his career, I just got over a cracked rib a couple months ago and i hard a very painfull time breathing,I for sure as hell wasn't willing to fight anyone

    I think he knew he would lose the fight if he went in injured and he probably knew if he was healthy they would put him on the TUF Finale Show,which they did. He won and now i gurantee we'll see him again in the UFC

    Hughes is fond of calling people out for faking rib injuries.



    I'm no expert with X-rays or CT scans, but I can believe that there was something wrong with his rib even without it showing up on a scan.

    Sacrificial lamb or not, he still would have lost to Danzig. I think he knew that going in and thought he had a better shot of winning a match on the TUF finale fully healed, thus making him look better and keeping the loss off his record. I did like Matt, though. He looks like a really good fighter.

    i agree completely, but the reason i pointed it out is because after wednesday's show hughes said something about arroyo maybe pussing out in his blog and he got criticized for saying these things so i wonder if they changed it so that hughes could save a little face or something. its just interesting, that's all.
