Just read the Arlovski interview after his last fight with Sylvia. Even with a broken foot, Arlovski wouldn't even bring that up in his answers. In fact, they found out from one of his trainers, it wasn't even Arlovski that blabbed about it. If Penn had said somethin before the fight, he could say something after the fight. He kept it to himself then, he should keep it to himself now. I don't care if he had a broken rib or not, he lost. If you're not able to fight, don't fight, if you do anyway, then don't bring up your injuries AFTERWARDS.
