Hypothetically, if some of the fights we've loved were revealed to be staged or predetermined to some degree, would you still watch mma?

There wouldn't be MMA to watch, because if the UFC was staging fights, the AC's would pull their liscence.

They faux-work the fights in the matchup phase. Subtle and savvy business strategy. Phone Post

ImA2TimeLoser -  Didn't stop anyone from watch pride.


Oh yes I did Phone Post

Yes it did, Me. I stopped watching after the Big Nog vs Ricco fight. I owned every pride that came out up to that point and just stopped. I know I missed a lot of great fights but I didn't care. Fixed fights, everyone on roids, mismatches and people fighting well out of there weight classes. Wasn't for me.

The fact that its real and anything can happen is why i watch. If it is revealed there is or was any fakery or pre planned outcomes....that would be it for me and MMA. I would be REALLY REALLY pissed off too!!!!! Phone Post

This is MMA. Not WWE. Nothing about martial artists who dedicate their lives to achieving greatness thru discipline, hard work and sacrifice for no guarantee of fame fortune or glory can remotely be considered, nor should it be confused,as fake.

It's obvious, with that question, you have no idea what the fuck you are talking about. If you did, the mere suggestion that UFC fights are fake, makes you one of the lowest forms of MMA fans....

Have some fights been fixed? Absolutely. Was that at the behest of the UFC? Absolutely positively fuck no. It was a matter of either both fighters, or only one fighter being in on the fix. And at times it was all set up by some shady, outside force that had no business being involved with matters related to MMA. See: PRIDE FC and their Yakuza roots.

I posed a simple question. I don't necessarily believe there has been predetermined fights or works, but what if there was? This was a hypothetical question. Would you stop watching? That's all I asked. Defensive much?

If it was proven beyond a shadow of a doubt, I'd never watch the UFC again.

It's kind of funny, each of his last 5 fights the promoters were probably hoping he would lose and Bigfoot was a huge underdog, yet he went 3-2. Phone Post
