    Hey I was wondering if theres any examples where it looks like a UFC fighter bet on there own fight, whether it was them winning or losing, or winning or losing at a certain round or in a certain way.

    I remember JDS saying he was going to ko mir in the second round and sounded real confident. Then he won by tko in round 2 when he no doubt could've won in round 1 if he wanted.

    Any other examples? Cormier vs Rumble 2 comes to mind

    The Mendes fight was bogus.

    100%

    The way he let that guillotine and lost Conor in the scramble. Then he backs up to the cage and drops his hands? Shit was suspect as hell.

    I also think Chael bet against himself vs Jones. I heard from a very good source, that when he accepted that fight, he knew he couldn't win.

    Chael vs Tito is more like it. I legit think that fight was fixed.

    Fedor losing to Verdum. He was a heavy favorite and would clean up by betting against himself.

    Kimbo vs Shamrock looked fixed as fuck.

    When do guys not strike AT ALL in the clinch?

    That fight was so awful. It definitely could have been fixed.

    O'Malley broke his foot and was done, but Southkamalah refused to win.

    Lord Chael being a good guy so Tito could retire with a win and make them 1-1 - setting up a potential rubber match later on for even more money?
