Yes you can make a claim that BJ was hurt during the fight, but had he capitolized on his good first round he may have been able to finish Hughes.
Don't be so quick to question someone's knowledge of MMA. You act like BJ wasn't hurt, when in fact medical reports show he had a broken rib. As for capitolizing, I don't think it is a stretch to say that he was capitolizing when he got his injury. Afterall he was reversing a excellent grappler and may have been able to control him with his upper body had he not been injured. Instead Matt was coming out the back door and despite being injured BJ got him in a triangle. Lucky?? Maybe not, but Matt's prayers were definitely answered.
