He went after Almeida because he tapped and Almeida held the choke for quite some time afterward.
Maybe it wasn't the sporting thing to do, but if I was in that position I might do the same things.

Yeah, this fight is smart from a marketing perspective. You bring in another Gracie who's a more well-rounded fighter, build up the whole revenge angle. And then when Hughes beats Renzo down -- and looks good doing it -- he gets some hype back heading into future fights.
And hey, if Renzo surprises and looks good in there, then that only gives you more match-making possibilities.
