He was yelling at the doctor but not really. He was venting at the doctor because his great opportunity was shot down. Also, "the doctor" is the one who needs to clear him to fight so in his eyes, the doctor is the one stopping him from fighting.

I don't see him as a dick, just upset for his loss of a huge opportunity.

That was one of the funniest things I ever seen in my life.
"Im walking home"
and his 5'4 guy comment, priceless.

I felt bad for him when I first found out but taking it on the doctor and his office (poor trash can) wasn't professional IMO, looked like he just, as Dana said "fit the stereotype of what people see of ufc fighters" (or something to that effect) on tuf 5.

Georges "Rush" St. Pierre
Mauricio "Shogun" Hua
Spencer "The King" Fisher
Urijah "The Californian Kid" Faber
Takanori "The Fireball Kid" Gomi

The funniest part of the entire argument between him and the doctor was when the doctor said "Your elbow is broken, you can't fight," and then Roman says "I enter depression now." I cracked up when that happened, but then again I was laughing the entire time of the scene. Armenian's tempers can be rather amusing.

P.S. Could anyone find any videos on this guy? I wouldn't mind seeing how he fights before the finale, because we all know Dana's gonna bring him back to fight.

The best part of the whole episode was Roman sitting in the bushes smelling flowers to calm his nerves.

I immediately thought that Dana is still going to use this guy in some way. And yes, the TUF finale is probably it, unless they are going to have welterweights next season too, which I doubt.

I think he acted that way to get some TV time because he knew that he was going to get sent home before he got a chance to fight. That means he would get no exposure at all.

Being on TUF is a huge opportunity and he lost his at the very beginning. If he didn't do something worthy of TV time in the doctor's office, he wouldn't have gotten any TV time.

Now, when he heals up, he can fight in the UFC or anywhere and be known as the guy who broke his elbow and freaked out on TUF.

He was very smart for acting the way he did. He left the show and was on TV more than any of the other guys.

I'll go with raymardo on this, but I'm taking it one step further.
Right now, to me, all of it is suspect. I'm soured by the Bisping Debacle and the absolute lack of candor on the part of the Rogan or, really, anyone of note. And it all looks phony now. Now that they know what works with the viewers, everybody is playing to that.
This Roman guy knew he would be going home, yes, so he played it up, yes, but I don't doubt for one moment that the director wasn't telling him "Good, good, play up the Borat business. Yeah, that's gold, Man." And then they told him to sit in the bushes and pull off a flower because that would make a really cool shot to play off the Borat stuff.
And that's when I turned off the TV.
