I have heard the octagon is fixed too so that if a PRIDE fighter steps into it they get shocked in the taint and that is Big John's "Q" to start the match and let the UFC Champion scurry across the ring and "girl scout slap" the opponent until they are KTFO.
There was a problem Saturday night. Evidently some of Franklin's spies double crossed him and let Silva's spies know about the plan and at the eleventh hour before the fight, Silva had his taint rubberized thus preventing the shock. When Big John started the fight Franklin thought "Son of a *****, he even looks happy after a taint-shocking" and rushed in only to be destroyed.
Also, I have heard that Dana White is not paying his fighters much because he is saving the money to re-erect the Berlin Wall just so he can have a Soviet v. USA themed PPV at UFC 70.
And yes the fights are fixed by none other then Dana's best friend
Mr. Osama Bin Laden who gave up terrorizing the world to fix fights in the UFC because he knew it would aggravate you!
