I heard that Dana was going to run in with a steel chair, but got so enthralled with Arlovski's attire, that he forgot the spot was even planned.

It's encouraging to see Americans becomeing more aware of what really happned with events such as 9/11. It's sickening to think that the US Gov could really do that. I'm sorry

wasn't fixed. i think e first punch randy threw basically won him the fight. tim must have been so psychologically ****ed up after being knocked down by the first punch a wrestler threw lol. randy just kept him guessing and ****ed with his head, sylvia lost the will to win.

Every major sport be it boxing, football, baseball, basketball, ect has been fixed at one time or another in hisotry.


Whats makes you think that MMA has never or will never be fixed? Especially now with all of the gambling and hundreds od millions of dollars involved. Don't be so naive.

I never said the UFC fixed the fights. These kind of threads hurt mma? major disrespect to fighters? I dont recall ever saying Couture's performance was fixed. And to Tim Sylvia, i said his performance was so lame that it looked like a fixed fight, and i dont think anybody can disagree with that. It's people just accepting everything they see the way its presented that makes people "look like a bunch of uneducated fools"

I agree, if Tim did lay down on purpose, Couture did not know anything about it, he fought at his A game, and could not have done better. He went straight for the KO and i dont think in any way he could get involved in this

Putting stupid theorys with plausible ones doesnt make the latter stupid as well. Get ur facts straight. And im not talking about all the upsets, else i would of mentionned others as well.

There are many ways to fix a fight, its not a clear " ok Randy, Tim is going to lay down". Pushing away the idea that a fixed fight is plausible just gives more chances that it will happen in the future.

Besides, all i said was Tim's performance was so lame that it looked like a fixed fight

The Coleman fight was a work. I'm not even joking either.

Who ever made this thread is an idiot. This is total disrespect to how hard Couture worked to get ready for this fight. He dominated that fight and your calling him a fake.
