"I'm mind boggled about his comment on PRIDE events. If Rampage is being truthful then they DO rig the events in some way. (If they instruct them to keep it standing for a few rounds etc..), I wonder if UFC does something like that (even if Rampage says they don't)."
i think its important to note rampage is talking about fights being put back on the feet when the ground game slows down, as opposed to forcing fighters to stay standing for early rounds.
a small distinction i know, but its the difference between fixing fights and just keeping a fight exciting for fans
