Just re-watched the Shamrock-Franklin fight. It had been like a decade since I saw it.

I think the flying slip was legit, but Ken definitely threw the fight.

I hate how he went from a sharp shooto type to a slow, beefy, flat-footed boxer with no variety.
It didn't work out very well for him.

You think Ken threw this or the ref and shakuraba? Fast stoppage for sure.

Damn.

Quote:"On or about July 23, 2015, Silva again launched another attack against the UFC, this time publishing his venomous statements on Facebook," the lawsuit alleges. "After weighing in on an independent contracted matter involving the UFC and another individual unaffiliated with Silva, the ex-fighter closed his post by stating publicly 'they don't respect anyone, I already left it very clear for you I won't ever fight again and for this event. Fixed fights and I can prove this. I still haven't dropped the bomb, I haven't told everything I know!'

"Not content to defame the UFC in a single post, Silva apparently decided to double-down on his scurrilous remarks. In a second post, published the same day, Silva continued his broadside attack. Though Silva published his posts in Portuguese, his statements nevertheless spread like wildfire throughout the MMA and broader sports community in the United States. Indeed a number of media outlets re-published Silva's statements (translated into English) in various online stories, thereby creating the potential for Silva's damaging statements to remain publicly available forever."

The suit goes on to claim that Silva's statements are particularly damaging on a global scale, especially in his home country of Brazil, where the UFC has a “large pool of fighters and fan base located there.”
"Linking the UFC, its owners and senior management with illegal fight fixing is a direct attack on their reputations and alleged lack of fitness for business," the lawsuit states.

Ya, how dare Wandy question the reputation of a Mafia family with a high stakes interest in organized gambling.

I guess it didn't matter whether we elected Clinton or Trump.

Tito used to say he felt like the UFC's Slave.

Wanderlei might actually become the UFC's first literal slave.

RE: Wandy:There are Worked fights in the UFC, I can prove it
I don't think fights have been worked.
When some fighters break, they look for easy ways out. This was helped along in pride by giving the loser more money by tapping or getting KO'd. So when they are in a weakened mental state and think they aren't going to win, then when they just get slapped, they drop or turn away for the ref to stop it and pick up a bonus check.

In pride I've definitely seen bias reffing a couple of times where the ref lets one guy get pummeled to near death, then they land a jab on the other guy and the ref jumps in and stops it.
