    i think he wanted out and chael let go at the exact wrong second.. both guys were ready to tap before a high-caliber prime mma fighter should be. as such, i really dropped the ball by not playing that under etc.

    I actually think the promotion would be the last to set up a fix. I said that when people were calling a fix on Kimbo/Shamrock. There is very little incentive for a promotion to do a work, because it's not as if the promotion was relying on Kimbo to carry them. They have a lot of other interests out there and a work being exposed would be far more devastating to a promotion than what they have to gain.

    The two parties that can benefit the most from a work are the fighters, specifically one like Chael who will remain marketable regardless. Tito in Rd 1 was around +900 iirc. Tito ITD is pretty high as well. There is a lot of money that can be made there.

    Bellator often fills their main event slots with awkward old dude fights. It's lower calibur fighting that looks off, which makes people think it's a fix.
