His reasoning, I think, is this:
1) Street fights = 2 minutes MAX
2) UFC/MMA = Street fighters
I think the only way to convince him they are not fixed is to convince him MMA is not street fighting. If someone is too proud, or too ignorant to others being more educated on a subject than he is, then you will not convince him of anything because he wont listen to you.
As you try to explain it to him, the only thoughts that are going through his head are: "Whatever! Whatever! Ive seen street fights! Whatever!! No! NO! There is no way you are smarter than me! No! Steet fights! NO! Im not listening!"
Tough to convince someone like that.
