UFC Rigged?

Don't get me wrong, I dont think that the fights themselves are rigged but I think maybe Dana pulls some strings he shouldn't. I think that originally having Silva and GSP on this Saturday's card was "tentatively" Dana's plan until he for sure got Cro Cop and Rampage. Once that was sealed I think he asked GSP to pull out so he could have a fight on another card. I also think this whole Lutter not making weight thing seems pretty odd. I mean seriously, you cant cut two pounds in two hours?! Maybe Dana didnt want the belt changing hands again so quick and this makes it a sure thing?

This is all speculation and I have no proof or articles to back it up but it just seems a little too set up to me. Anyone else have this feeling?

I think you are wrong. Nobody would throw away an opportunity like that, Lutter I mean.

But Lutter DID just throw away his shot like that by not making weight. If he was serious about getting the title he would've made weight. I think he knows he isnt good enough to be champ and just wanted to make the money. If Dana paid enough, then...

I'm sure Lutter was already drained at weigh-ins, so losing another two pounds is way harder than you or me losing two pounds in two hours.

He just did not plan and prepare with all the time he had.

And you come up with some crazy speculations I would've never thought of...haha. The GSP thing, I guess I can kinda accept that (but I doubt GSP did). The Lutter part...I don't believe there was anything set up. Lutter just ****ed up.

"cutting" weight isn't losing weight and 2lb in 2 hours is a piece of cake tbh,unless already dehydrated to the maximum.

I'm not sure about "piece of cake", but you are essentially correct. My own weight will change as much as 5 lbs. during a normal day and that's not even trying to cut weight or anything.

I don't want to call you retarded, but its hard not to.

I've never had a cutting weight problem, but thats because i cut weight once before just as a training cycle so my body gets used to it, and then i cut it for weight in's.

For the amount of stress you put on your body 2 pounds can seem like 300 for a fighter, Lutter probably didn't have any fluid to loose in him so steam room/sweat running are pretty much out of the picture.

Btw 2 pounds of sweat=more then you think.

next time you work out at the gym, take a towel and mop it up and poor it into the bucket, weight the bucket before hand so you can subtract the amount of liquid's weight from the buckets weight. Now think how much stress those fighters bodys are in compaired to yourself.


Now you know how it might remotely feel.

The amount of disrespect for fighters by saying theres a change of it being "rigged" its rediculous. Lutter isn't getting a redo by the way, this was his shot and he didn't do it, unless he pulls off a win in which it would put him back in line for a title shot but he would still have to fight a few more times to get into another shot. I've training MMA for 2 years, kickboxing 6 and submission wrestling almost 8 and i've NEVER heard of a fighter throwing a fight in a big organization. They dont get payed enough, and they work to hard to loose it. Unlike boxing where chances come and go because you don't have the high chance of injury as you do in MMA.

Good Day.
