To think this fight was fixed is BS! How come everyone said Syliva was a crappy fighter and he didn't deserve the belt, then when he loses it, the fight was fixed? This is the UFC, not the WWF. Show Couture the respect he deserves.

I know i might get hated for saying this, But Sylvia looked so bad last night that this fight looked completly fixed. I know some people will say " o yeah, Sylvia got rocked on purpose after 10 seconds.. right", but have you ever seen such a lame performance?

In that perspective, every1 wanted Randy to win and Sylvia to loose.. and thats what happened, and randy took 0 damage... And sylvia/Couture are friends.. hum.. Of course i dont have proof of it and nobody ever will, but wow, ive never seen a champ lay down for some1 else like this.

I agree with you 100% Tim didnt do sh1t. But i dont think it was fixed, if you noticed, in the begining of round one randy caught him in the chin and then took it to the ground, then tim got tired, and every other round randy kept taking him down so tim was sh1t tired.

Not fixed.
It is exactly the same fight he has done the last 3 matches.
This time though he had a much more skilled opponent that took special care to expose his weaknesses. Randy was right, Tim was fighting not to lose and against a true winner. Unless you fight to win you won't.

It wasn't fixed, Couture just had a perfect game plan and implemented it precisely. I think even he was surprised at how good his plan worked

I admit, Tim looked worse than usual. I guess he needs to rethink his game plan now since he just got his butt whooped by Couture.

I suppose Sylvia was not lying when he said he was injured, but simply put, it was Couture's night. He looked unnatural (no pun intended) when he blasted Sylvia with that right hook that put the big man down!

I'm still a little shocked.

There ois no way this was fixed even if Tim showed nothink during the whole fight. He must of thought Randy would not stand with him but he was so wrong. Tim was just unable to change or mix it up a bit when plan A went wrong.

MMA fights aren't fixed. Period. Thats a bad thing to say too. It shows disrespect to the fighters, dumbs down MMA to Pro-Wrestling levels, and questions the integrity of the sport.
