Retardo narcissism aside, I gotta respect Dan Barrera. Half the fighters on TUF quit the second shit gets hairy or they hear about something from the outside world. But not Dan Barrerra. This motherfucker gets a call from his wife where she’s being a crazy bitch and he’s all like “Whatever you crazy bitch, see you when the show’s over!”
Apparently his vows should have been modified from “Through sickness and in health” to “Through sickness, health, and TUF tapings”.
Sure, his actions may seems pretty harsh, but this is real life for Dan … he doesn’t disappear when the show is over, and neither do his bills. If he’d fucked off to deal with his crazy wife, it would have been game over for his dreams of ever fighting in the UFC. That leads to some serious resentment issues, which lead to divorce, which lead to more resentment, which leads to drinking, which leads to sinking your boat and starting a support group.
Past that, to take a beating from Matt Hughes and then get fucked over on the decision … Dan should consider finding a new deity because whoever he’s praying too doesn’t seem to be taking great care of him. The one positive thing about this is you know he’s gonna be featured prominently in the finale. If Ben Saunders flunks out of the semi-finals I wouldn’t be surprised if the rematch-crazy UFC sets up a second match between the two for the finale.
