The Japanese orgs have always done this. They want a win for Mousasi, so the challenger gets short notice so he can't have a training camp.

so it was a short notice thing?....I guess you gotta know that if you've got a chance at being in one of these promotions and they pull these kinds of shennanigans then you've gotta always be ready.

Definitely not a work. Jake had 12 days notice to cut 37 lbs. He hadn't trained in 3 months because he's been working 2 jobs. The money offer was too much to turn down.

If only he had a training camp he might have heard about this thing called a guillotine; he never got to that chapter in the Fighter's Notebook in any of his previous training.

Sounds like dive then. "Need the money, don't want damage, 30 seconds of work, fuck it."

That's what makes it a work.

Maybe you want to be pedantic about the term "work," but Dream used those factors to engineer the outcome of the fight.

Lol if favorable matchmaking constitutes a work then 50% of MMA fights are works. Its completely disrespectful to say a fighter threw a fight when you have no real evidence that he did. Its also very possible that dream had no knowledge of Obriens training or lifestyle at the time. They arent going to fly over and observe him, and jake's manager isnt going to tell the promoter that jake is out of shape and isnt going to be able to perform. You are a complete loser.

It certainly 100% looked like a work. So I'm going to call it a work.

When was the last time the UFC or Strikeforce asked a fighter to perform under these circumstances? The closest I can possibly think of is Leben but at least he was in very good fighting shape coming out of a solid camp despite the short notice.

But didn't O'Brien show up out of shape for his first fight after the UFC?

30 second of work, no damage, got paid. Got to see Japan. Could have laid some outside bets too.
