First off, this whole "UFC being fixed" theory is completely bogus. For one, why would these guys train their ass' off only to go in and take a fall? Also, if a MMA fighter was taking fall, wouldn't it be blatantly obvious? How does someone in boxing take a fall? They get "hit", go down and stay down for ten seconds. You mean to tell me, that if someone in MMA is taking a fall, we aren't going to notice one of the fighters purposely putting themselves in harms way, only to get "caught" in a surprise armbar? Or perhaps you are speaking of someone, such as Cro Cop, being able to sell a fake head kick knock out? If Gonzaga VS Cro Cop was fixed than Cro Cop deserves a damn Oscar as he truly convinced me that he didn't see that damn leg of Gonzaga coming at him. Shogun lost. Cro Cop has lost 2 in a row. Did you ever think, perhaps for a second, that maybe, just maybe, your Pride gods aren't as awesome as the Yakuza painted them out to you? Maybe next time when someone from Pride fights in the UFC, I guess we will tell the refs to restart them in the middle of the cage so they can catch their breathe.

I personally think the Liddell/Silva fight has more intrigue now since both are coming off of two losses. The whole fights being fixed thing is horsecr@p, It could be last night that Shogun had ring rust because he hadn't fought in a while but Forrest fought a hell of a fight, also maybe the UFC guys are a little bit underrated to the Pride guys since the Pride guys were supposed to come in here and kill all the UFC guys and the only one to have success so far is Quinton Jackson and if you think about it the transition might not of been as difficult as you think because his fight before the UFC was in the cage and he had helped Tito train before.

As usual Southpaw447 has no answers to my rebuttles

Just admit that Shogun isn't as good as you thought he was and *Gasp* Forrest Griffen is actually a very good fighter.
