Bryan Caraway is giving his side of the story on the complaints that he elbowed Cat Zingano before her fight against Miesha Tate at the Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale as well as his regrets about his choice of words regarding Pat Healy's suspension.

No one even cares what this guy has to say anymore. He has clearly put his foot in his mouth and is now looking for a way out of the scrutiny he is in.

I agree as well.
Who waits 6 weeks after being elbowed to talk about it?
This would of been adressed that moment or that evening, not last week. lol
ESPECIALLY when its a man assaulting a woman!!

Perhaps not. Maybe DFW or Zuffa said, "Hey let's not blow this thing up. We know what happened. This is only the second WMMA fight in UFC history, let's not attract some undue attention at such a critical juncture."

Speculation, obviously.

I honestly do think he elbowed Cat if you read her side of the story she makes a lot of sense why she waited as long as she did, I mean why would Cat make the story up after destroying tates face? Just my opinion though.

I'm not buying Caraway's dodge. Cat has nothing to gain by making up a story about him.

The urge to fighter bash is almost irresistable with this guy.

I started typing and had to delete it about 4 times before I decided it was best to leave it alone

Haha...yeah that revision process is the best indicator that you're about to get yourself in trouble.

Well, it's clear someone is lying, but not clear who. Zingano not bringing it to anyone's attention is odd, but something sticks out about me here with Caraway:

"...I know I'm a genuinely good person, and I know that's eventually going to shine through."

The second someone tells you're they're honest or a good person, that generally means they're not. Liars always say they're not going to lie or that they're honest. Shitty people always talk about how they're good people.

We'll never know who the guilty party is unless someone happened to record it for no apparent reason, but that's what stuck out at me from all of this.

Car salesmen come to mind. "Let me be honest with you", "I'm not going to lie" or "I wouldn't lie to you" are all red flags. Generally if a person is trustworthy or of good character they don't need to go shouting it from the rooftop.
