Should Chuck Be Concerned?

Given the UFC's blatant disregard for the integrity of the sport which has often resulted in unfair officiating and questionable decisions should Chuck be at all concerned about bias towards Ortiz in their upcoming fight? Think about it, this is going to be the biggest payday for the UFC in their history and if Tito were to win they could easily set up another even bigger payday down the road? We're talking tens of millions of dollars and I dont think that's a possibility if Tito loses again. I mean UFC fans are gullible simpletons but I dont think they would swallow the hype a 3rd time.

It's not going to come into play because Chuck is going to knock Tito out quickly but it bothers me that it can even be brought up as a legitimate question.

Your thoughts?

Well to answer your idiot first sentance...

The UFC doesn't do the judging or scoring or officiating. Perhaps you should learn a little first my confused fellow forum poster and talk about the state of Nevada before you say

"blatant disregard for the integrity of the sport"

LOL

atom has very good point.

I mean you shouldnt really enter the UFC forum what-so-ever and start your thread like that. Its hard for me to focus on your question after reading that.

why is there a bigger pay day if tito wins? i would think a bigger payday would come if chuck retained setting up Liddell/Rampage 2 as a grudge match for the title.(assuming page wins his fights)

Atomdnager...are you sincerely trying to say that you believe the the UFC has never done anything questionable in order achieve the results that benefited them best financially? And are serious when you say that because they're regulated by the Nevada State Boxing commission that they have no influence on scoring, judging officiating, etc? I guess that's why professional boxing has such a stellar spotless reputation huh?

Look, you obviously have zero understanding of how the sport is regulated and how the judging/officiating is conducted. I suggest that you do some homework before embarrassing yourself on forums and message boards. I however do know, I was a professional boxer and I am currently competing in MMA so dont tell me the way it works you punk ass Monday morning quarterback. Becuase you dont know shit

Are you kidding me? Most UFC jerk off fans dont even know who the hell Rampage is. It's going take a lot of time and few cakewalk fights for him to get their attention and build the hype for Rampage vs. Liddell 2

im not really in the conversation or anything, but you being a pro boxer or mma fighter does not give you any more infos on who and how a major organisation judge a decision or influence a ref, even if you were indeed competing in the UFC(which i suppose you dont, else u would of mentionned it). More over, it should simply bias ur own opinion since u probably have faced a decision win or loss.

That's ridiculous...of course someone who is directly involved in a sport has a better understanding of how the system works than a spectator. How could you possibly think otherwise?

Even if you are a pro boxer it doesnt make up for your constant ignorant statements.

As do I, and if you're ever in Portland we can put the gloves on after you're done talking tough online.

Maybe they do have some sort of influence, its possible. But not likely, they hold fights in different states and other countries here soon. So it would be pretty stupid for them to get a decision they wanted and then have the guy fight somewhere else just to lose.
Not to mention fights can end in MMA literally any time during the match. So it would be pointless for the UFC to gain influence and take part in something very illegal just for someone to get knocked out and scoring doesn't matter.
