I think they put that in due to his history. Remember this is the UFC, they are going to edit this as much as they can to hype up each fighters past and build "sides" rooting for each in the fight. I think Dana's call to BJ and JD and the editing proved this tremendously.
I've been watching his video blog and posts on his website and he's been training pretty hard the entire time his site has been up, around the last 3-4 fights. The beginning of the show they said they were 30 days out from the fight, that puts it being filmed around new years, I don't think taking some time off that far out to heal up and get ready for the final 3 week push is going to hurt him that much. I've read about a lot of fighters doing similar things so they don't peak too early or go into the fight too banged up.
