Some number of the sport's "fans" thought there was a conspiracy during the main event of UFC on FX 8, in which Luke Rockhold is believed to have nodded discretely, setting up the kick from Vitor Belfort.

It is probable that the conspiracy theorists reached the conclusion due to a misreading of the poor broadcast quality that results from streaming video to your ham radio.

In all seriousness though, it is sad that fighters have to respond to fools and idiots; Luke Rockhold's sole tweets since the fight were congratulations to Belfort, and a response to the maroons.

Luke Rockhold ‏@LukeRockhold
•Well that couldn't have gone much worse. Congratulations @VitorBelfort amazing kick! I'll be back real soon.
•Hearing some talk about my fight with Belfort being a fix. No amount of money would make me even consider taking a fall. I got caught I lost

The clowns also muttered that Chris Camozzi went out suspiciously fast from Jacare's arm triangle.

The most satisfactory solution in the latter case, rather than a refuting tweet by Camozzi, might be to have a representative of the conspiracy minded test how long it takes to go out when locked in a Jacare choke.

What is your solution to Internet idiots? Ignore? Vote Down? Delete the UG??!?

Someone should tell Luke there are much less painful ways to take a dive than a spinning heel kick to the dome. There is the Bob Sapp approach where you curl up in a ball and take a few punches, or simply fall down from some unknown injury.

w9 - You banned me last Sunday for ORIGINALLY posting this 'story'.

Double standards.
What do you expect? This site has the journalistic integrity of The Onion. Anyone else notice that they misspelled "embarrassing" in the article about Dana White earlier? Irony, no? Phone Post 3.0

That's not nice. The Onion has proofreaders.

Yeah that's an insult to the Onion, frankly. They know they write parody, we know they write parody, they're upfront about it, there's no underhandedness or misrepresentation. They have plenty of integrity.

Lol, yeah because that finish would be everyone's first choice when throwing a fight.

The nod makes sense! No way that kick hits anyone worth a damn! Anderson Silva would have laughed, stepped to the side checked his phone and than dropped him before he even got it off. Maybe Rockhold is just slow as hell? Maybe he took a dive. Either way I am getting sick of Vitor and his bible thumping TRT using bullshit.

Who writes this crap? Why does questioning a fight promotions integrity make someone a moron or an idiot? Hundreds of people have taken falls and you think it can never happen again? If it looks like a dive and smells like a dive, it might be a dive. If people just accepted what the media fed to them then the government could get away with anything and the country would go right down the.... Oh.... wait... Too late.

Yeah there are much better ways to take a fall for sure.
Plus what's the incentive? Who benefits if Vitor wins the fight? It's not like a Super Fight between GSP and AS would go down the tubes. Silly theory imo!

I'm getting sick of you teenage atheists who think they know fucking everything, and use their 'immense knowledge' to look down their nose at religious people. I'm not religious, at all, but this self righteous bullshit is just as bad as any religious people I hear from.

Since 2007 Vitor is 9-2 with his only losses coming to Jones and Anderson. He's finished all but 1 of his opponents in that time.

Face it, Vitor is a beast, he doesn't need his fights to be fixed. He fixes them with his fists. Okay, that last part was incredibly lame.

Can you please give examples of the hundreds of fighters taking dives?Can you name any fighter taking a dive in the UFC?

Questioning the Government is good but that has nothing to do with Rockhold getting knocked out.
