Some people around here would consider me a prick and some don't. I bust your balls because you make it so easy, This thread is a prime example.
now your putting words in my mouth and changing your argument as well.
You first said that Pride fighters were, "taking dives" now you are saying that they aren't taking the fights seriously because they are bieng paid well.
That is not unheard of in pro sports for a free agent to get a big contract and then never play up to the same level again. That is totally different than fixing fights though.
Serra beating GSP was not good at all for Zuffa. Your on the message boards, you hear the cheers for him when he fights, hell, the crowd went nuts for him last night when he was sitting in the stands. GSP as champ is good for business, more so than Serra. Also if they were fixing fights, I'm sure they would have made sure that Chuck wins his fight, so he could face Wandy in December.
What fight gives you goosebumps?
Chuck/Wandy or Jardine/Wandy
