    "Either you do what they tell you, or you’re fired,” Silva explained. "I won’t give up until they free the athletes. This promoter is killing our sport. There are fighters going back to work to support their families because they can’t live from the sport alone. They’re very poorly paid. We are getting organized and soon I’ll have news for my brothers in the ring. This will not stand! Some have tried to buy me, but I am not, nor have I ever been for sale. And I will fight to the end, to unmask these promoters, who are deceiving the public, cheating, and taking the dignity and the honor from our sport! This is turning a pro-wrestling show with fixed fights. We have to stop these guys because that’s the end of the line for us!" https://www.sportsjoe.ie/mma/wander...ot-proof-that-the-ufc-have-fixed-fights-33318

    Very interesting looking back at Wanderlei Silva's beef with the UFC. He claimed that the UFC were fixing fights and this was years ago. Not that I think Cerrone took a dive, I think he was just bested, however it is interesting to have a look back at Wanderlei's claim of fight fixing

    *He claimed he had evidence UFC were fixing fights then was asked to verify these claims or be sued back to the stone age and he backtracked.

    More accurately.

    I dont think UFC fixes fights.. The risks such as losing your fight promoter license is too great.
    How ever I do think UFC matches up certain fighters with easy fights and spin it into a great win and give title shot based on nothing but flavor of the month.
    Some times it works such as Conor vs Cowboy some time it back fires Barber vs Roxy.
    but more than that? No

    Between you and Wanderlei, it's hard to say who has less brain cells

    Donald Cerrone has a reported net worth of 9 million dollars. He doesn’t need more money.

    If there was real fight fixing I think it would’ve came out long ago. No way it’d be kept under wraps this good and for this long. Too many moving parts. It’d be a major groundbreaking scandal if it came out that UFC were truly fixing fights. No way they’d be getting away with it for this long

    I dont think you morons know what the ramifications would be if they were caught fixing fights. Your talking MAJOR lawsuits from casino's, participants going to prison, the sport would be ruined. So to just throw it out there because you're UPSET your fighter lost is just very childish and lazy.
    I really cant believe this is how low you are willing to go because you dont like McGregor. It's very sad. Go for a walk, get some sunlight

    I just think it's a damn shame that you have such an epic AV yet you're such a shit poster. Anyway, I never said it was a fix, I even said it in the OP. Cerrone was outclassed. I just think with all the talk of fight fixing and diving that Wanderlei's gripe with the UFC was interesting. No need to get all upset over nothing. Just leave the thread if you're that bothered

    You know who tries to make veiled 'fixed fight' threads, while saying 'I don't think it's fixed'. Children and retards, oh wait no, that would be you!

    Just accept it, and everything will get better

    Cowboy is awesome fighter.

    Conor is out of his league at 170.

    accept what? What am I denying? I even said in the OP that I think it was a legit win, you're just being emotional over nothing

    Dude cut the little guy some slack.
    He has admitted to not logging in, in over a year because people are meanies.
    But when Conor got a win he logs in and celebrate like it was his own win.
    He probably be gone again soon.

    You aren't clever.
    On the day after UFC 246 and Conor's comeback win, you are trying to discuss fixed fights rather than all the things that happened last nights. So transparent it's funny
