It might not be rigged, but I do think that the UFC management does what ever it can(with out directly fixing fights) to make the main events go longer. Also another factor is after Chuck has one of his psycho attacks, he gasses for the rest of the round. Watch his fight with Vernon closely and you will see what I mean.

If anybody did anything, it was Chuck. He probably let it go to see if maybe he could knock Tito the **** out and have it end that way instead of a TKO... If you listen to his post fight interview he says:

"It was a good fight for the fans, wasn't too quick."

Either way, no big deal. Fights won't be fixed. The only fight that ever looked like it would be fixed is freaking what's his name against Drew McFederies where all of a sudden he laid down on his back. That fight wouldn't make any sense to fix. I don't remember in any of the fights you guys mentioned being fixed somebody making it blatantly obvious, there's too many variables in a fight. The only way to fix one would be to drop dead on a whiffed punch, or tapping way too early or something like that, and everyone would see it. Or Judges, and that one's been debated.

Alessio Sakara.

I think Sakara pulled a Ken Shamrock in the McFederies fight. He blasted him with everything, and McFederies wouldn't go down. He punched himself tired.

Exactly, I love how people come on after fights just because they think they weren't executed the way they thought the fighters should have and start saying it was rigged somehow. I guess that is all some people have to think about. It is funny folks even put that much thought into it in the first place

I don't think the UFC fights are rigged at all, not like boxing where in alot of fights you can see clear as day they threw the fight.

The Liddell Tito fight was definatly not fixed. Chuck got gassed first round after throwing all those big hits, he used the second round to build himself back up which is why he wasn't doing much that round, he was trying to re-gain energy. Once the third round hit chuck was built back up and ready to go and tito even said himself at the end of the fight he threw those hits out of pure anger which probally made chuck angry and then he unleashed hell on whipped toto ortiz' butt.
