Look, at the end of the day... this is how fighters make money. he needs to make that money. he didnt quit... he just found a loophole in their shitty system... diego did what he did to get his win bonus, which is double your pay most of the time. he basically took advantage of the situation, and got paid double. It was either he got paid double, or he goes on to lose a decision to periera. it was the smart thing to do. but on the other hand, he faked not being able to continue, so he loses some honor and warrior points.
