It's a non title match between Royce and Matt. At least as far as I know. I don't think Matt would go for that.

Both of them are too good for the fight to get thrown. As much a jerk as Royce might be at times, he is still self righteous and the idea of Matt throwing the fight wont appeal to him either.
The problem is, if Royce wins than every one will say "I told you it was rigged." Its all people who have never been in the ring with a BJJ master.

That stuff hurts.

I think these guys have way too much pride to throw a fight.Fighters fight because they love to fight. And the green definately helps but it kills any good fighters ego not to give it all you have.There is too much pride for either of these men.
some of these fights I have been wondering how they are scoring because there are definately favorites.My answere to that is never let it go to the judges tap out or ko!

I don't think it's fixed, they could fix it if they wanted to but there would be no point to it. Some of these guys have to much pride to throw a fight.

I agree. I'd love to watch rampage beat the crap out of chuck again. It was hillarious. Or watch Wanderlie kill him.

Maybe when he learns to keep his eyes open when he throws a punch, he may become an ok fighter.
I'd love to watch rampage cream chuck again, because he is a much better fighter.
I do think that there's a better reason why Chuck wins fights than because Dana White sets it up that way. I think if chuck was a trailer trash fighter he would have lost to Couture, he didn't. He wins fights because he throws some brutal strikes. He's not sophisticated, but he knows what he's good at and he takes advantage of that.

Liddel = stand up
horn = ground

Just because horn did not get to showcase his ground skills doesn't qualify him as crap.

So, you would also imply, that if liddel was completely on the ground for that fight, he would be a crap fighter.

Horn knew he couldn't stand with chuck. Chuck knew he couldn't go to the ground with horn. They are both great at the sport. but, no crap.

Yeah. I just thought through your statement, you were implying that Horn, or anyone for that matter was crap due to the fact that they can't stand with the hard hitting liddel.
