    1) If a fighter folds from barely taking any damage and covering up so they dont take any severe damage *ahem Greg Hardy fights*

    2) If a fighter does not land a clean shot. they will not throw something with ill intent unless they know they are going to miss. *ahem Lawler vs Colby*

    3) If a fighter gives up a submission really easily. *ahem chael sonnen*
    (especially after no damage inflicted by either fighter => wrestling exchange => sub)

    4) If the organization is pushing a fighter to become a star, this gives them a clear reason.

    There is a difference between fixing a fight and looking for an easy way out so you can collect your fight money and go home without taking damage. Sonnen does the latter.

    Play the rest of the clip dude.

    Also, Rich was in a DEEP heel hook that fight; one he said bothered him for the rest of his career.

    Ken has been part of a lot of shady shit; like taking money early from small promoters then pulling out of fights and not giving it back. That fight though? Nah.

    How does Ken Fckin Shamrock, a guy with a 100 years of mma experience, NOT finish this against a novice like Kimbo..?

    This gif is very misleading. Shamrock completed this takedown

    Are you implying Ken falling to his back was an attempt to get the lock in? Looks like he pretended to get hit, Then went for that ankle.

    this was probably the most obvious fix in history lol
    its so obvious that it wasn't even worth mentioning... it should be common knowledge that this is a fixed
    for yall that dont know, Kimbo gout out and TKO'd ken shortly after.

    I'm not implying shit; I'm just saying you get better context from the whole clip.

    I don't know man - maybe he saw the jab coming that clips him, tried to lean back and his ankle buckled. Maybe his knees have been held together with tape instead of cartilage for like the least twenty plus years and fell weird.

    Just watch the whole fight though, it doesn't look like a fix.

    Fight fixing is such a weird thing to accuse a promotion of, because it's a complete death knell for the entire organization.

    This is a fix:

    Kimbo Slice vs. Bo Cantrell and Pudzianowski's first MMA fight always stand out to me. In the latter's case, his opponent reacted like he was getting shot with each low kick. <45>

    Overall, I think there are way more fixed fights than most people want to admit.

    That was fixed? Looked like a great example of The winged in hook being delivered.
