Mark Coleman Threw A Fight in Pride?!?

is this really true?!? i just discovered this a while ago. here's the link that makes the claim:

YouTube - Mark Coleman Disgraces America

my apologies if this is incredibly old. how is he allowed to fight if he threw fights? the only thing i can think of is that he was never "caught".

so, what say you?!?

It was in Pride, therefore they didn't really give much of a shit. The fight's been a known work for a while now. Hilarious how Takada worked that fight like his other pro wrestling fights, making it even more obvious than the commentators.

Yeah that was a thrown fight. It's so obvious. Coleman would have wiped the floor with Takada otherwise.

Yeah you can tell that's for real just by watching the fight. I mean he had side control then jumped out of it and handed his arm to Takada.

I had never heard of this before your thread...I watched the video and maybe I'm missing something but I don't really see any glaring or obvious evidence that Coleman took a dive. He seemed like he tried everything to end it quickly, couldn't, gassed and got caught in a heel hook...I've seen that kind of thing countless times.

Please explain what I'm not seeing?

Giving up side mount to go into someone's guard is not something an olympic wrestler or MMA veteran would do. Also, Coleman had the most fierce GnP back in the day, he would have creamed Takada but he went really lightly on him. Lastly, did you even watch that heel-hook? rofl, he layed on his belly like a ******* fish.. didn't even try to pull his leg out.

Those knees and punches colemans throwing can't be causing any pain for the other guy at all.

it's so obvious how can you not see that it was worked i mean he jumped from side mount and then fought to get back into his guard when he could've very easily passed back into side mount like he'd done earlier and then he baited him to take the heel hook he left his leg there forever and then stepped btw his legs so it would be right there and then didn't even try to get out of it and he wasnt gassed he was fine takada was gassed tho did you see him after?
