The issue with something like this if indeed there is some funny business, is not the fighter wanting to throw the fight, its someone forcing him to throw the fight! A lot of kidnapping in Brazil, countless sports stars family have been taken, Belfort included. So while unlikely it's certainly not beyond reality that there could be a criminal element involved
