there is a set screw in the cup to keep the cup from rotating if you lost if you can buy a bag of them for a couple of bucks as for that bearing I don't beleive that it is a one way bearing just make sure there is no dirt behind it and push it back in.
Just went and looked at my cup and it is indeed round all the way through so there will be a hole in the side of the cup and it looks like i may still see your grub screw in there make sure that is aligned with the flat part of the input on the Diff and you will be good to go
mine did this same thing a couple weeks ago

and as for the reason they do this these vehicles are just like baja race vehicles every race the teams tear the truck down and check for cracks and make sure the bolts were tight to see where more attention is needed.
all the rough terrain along with the vibration of the engine cause all kinds of screws and things to come loose Blue locktite is your best friend
