I would say ppl go to great lenghts with this "excuse" matter. I totally deslike any Diaz, but the guy is just stating something that happened to him what happens to be the goal of any fighter: to hurt you to cause disability. It would be the same as saying that "Mike Lullo stating his legs were hurt by Barboza kicks and that decreased his performance" was an excuse.
I accept this will be an endless discussion, though.
