These type of threads hurt MMA, show major disrespect to the fighters, and make internet forum posters look like a bunch of uneducated fools.
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
