When Liddell fights Rampage or Wanderlei and beats them then I will give credit where credit is due.
AMEN!!!!!!

IT IS NOT FIXED. Not only would Hughes or Gracie not do it, but Dana doesn't need to do it. If Huges wins, the sloppy fighting is justified and the fans with nothing better invested in the sport than to want to see a good brawl will be happy and flock to the UFC even more. If Gracie wins, he again proves that discipline and technique is the best way to fight, and MMA purists who are tired of the "jack of all trades, master of none" brawlers will come back to the sport with renewed passion.

It is not fixed because either result is win/win for the UFC.

Damn right.

I think that USMCgrappler has put it the best. It's not fixed, because they don't need to. Well said!

I do not think it is true competition I know people who never watch UFC but religiously watch WWE and I know people who do the opposite, Me I like both, Ilike the entertainment of WWE, yes I know it is mostly scripted. And I like the UFC and such for the fact its not. and if UFC gave Vince enough trouble, Vince would do something about it,but I doubt Vince sees it as competition they each have thier fans who like the show for what they are.

Now I would like to see a weekly UFC show something other then TUF, which I have enjoyed in the past. But a UFC kinda like the weekly boxing. I think there are more then enough fighters out there now to keep a show going.

I also have wondered if the ufc was fixed after watching shamrock loose a fight [I cant remember the other fighter] where he looked like a novice that didnt even know how to do anything because they both just stood there forever without either fighter making a move and shamrock had poor countering with the other guys attacks. it looked like shamrock wimped out on purpose because he didnt act like a fighter at all in that match. hopefully someone knows what match Im referring to.

That's just Shamrock, that's not him fixing it. He has always been like that.

That was their last meeting in UFC 40 or 41. If you get to see Shamrock in person, he looks like a walking scar...some of it done in that fight. Yes, their 3rd meeting.

If you didn't know now you know. It's not fixed, if it were Gracie would have won.

No way. That fight was not in favor of Gracie, by no means.
