    Rampage gave an interview last year saying he was offered more money to take dives in Pride! Less that one year later i'm supposed to believe that's out of the realm of possibility?

    And i guess technically speaking having fighter take a dive isn't necessarily a work, but still... it's not on the level.

    Didn't mean to stir up the hornets nest as I know there are a TON of pride marks on this board.

    In a strange way this proves both of our points... so let's just leave it at that

    Well if they are fixing fights, I'm hoping they book Fedor vs. Hulk Hogan for their next event.

    I'm going with the Hulkster in Rd. 2 via Leg Drop.

    All the fights looked on the level imo.
