I don’t think there’s a single person in this world (who isn’t mentally unstable) that thinks Floyd couldn’t half kill this poor kid in a round if he wanted to. Nobody is arguing that. It’s a terrible terrible mismatch.

However, some of the kids reactions to going down look very very suspicious. The first knockdown in particular looks ridiculous to me. Kid gets hit on the glove and goes for a ride, legs flailing all over the joint then five seconds later he’s totally fine.

Let’s not turn this into a scenario where people are acting like those who think it looks a bit dodgy are saying Floyd couldn’t ice this kid with ease. Because he obviously could.
But why would this be rigged? First off, there wasn't even any betting on this, it was an exhibition. And secondly, why would Rizin or the 'mob' want Tenshin to lose in the first round anyway? Tenshin and Rizin take a big hit and it doesn't serve anybody any benefit. Tenshin losing in the first is the worst outcome for everyone that isn't Floyd involved with this.

Mate, read back a few pages. We’re all in unanimous agreement that there’s no obvious reason for this to be fixed. All this has already been said.

Another angle guys.

@Benny Blanco
Sorry mate that just re enforces my opinion. Why’s the kid jumping and flailing all over when he’s barely touched? Only part that looks legit is the second knockdown with the double right hand.

First & third knockdowns look suspicious from that angle. Fair enough he gets hit with a cuffing shot for the third but I still don’t believe he gets touched for the first.

Seems like there’s no Slo Mo of the first knockdown anywhere?

The feeling I have looking at the first knockdown (and the third) is the same that I have when I look Ali vs Liston in their rematch and Holmes vs Alfredo Evangelista. That feeling that an acting is happening.

Nobody can prove it though, and maybe it wasn´t a fix in the sense that it was all staged... maybe the kid just wanted to get out of there quick and didn´t give a fuck about this "fight".

What’s the average IQ of people here? Can you seriously not understand why it would be faked, what the motivations would be for everybody involved? People saying “It makes no sense for Floyd to fake it, therefore that wasn’t a shitty acting job that it appears to be, it’s all an illusion”. How can someone be that dumb?
I mean first of all everyone was saying originally that it was dangerous for Floyd, a weird fight to take without any real reward. So now it’s an exhibition that was called off then scheduled again and we’re doubting that it could be scripted?
I get that Pedders is an inbred runt with an extremely low iq but what’s wrong with everybody else who can’t see it for what it obviously is? Shame on this place.

Rizn will probably consider it a good investment. Raised their profile etc.
Raised their profile, worldwide publicity, publicity for one of their fighters, a dramatic event for the Japanese public (they love this stuff) and making a shitload of money. But no, how could Rizn deal with the shame of the highest profile combat sports athlete in the world ‘beating’ their little guy in an exhibition bout with no weigh ins, winners or losers? That’s catastrophic for Rizn, definitely not fixed.
Do we really think a shrewd businessman is going to risk humiliation over a $9 million pay check, a guy who has carefully picked and chosen his opponents throughout his whole career?
Do we really think that guy retired at 41, is going to enter that situation without any training, dance and smile for the crowd without knowing that it’s a scripted show? Was the fact that it wasn’t a fight give anybody a clue? That Floyd talked about the exhibition as entertainment throughout the promotion?
But no, why would Floyd need to fake it? He’s an unbeatable fighter, he could’ve done that in a real fight. Why did the kid cry? Obviously not fake then. Never mind that it was poor acting with no actual tears, and it makes no sense to cry in an exhibition bout that isn’t your official sport, and it makes no sense to cry when you’re making a ton of money to be the chosen one to ‘fight’ against Floyd. But the kid really wanted to win the exhibition, shame to Japanese family.
Seriously if people can’t think through this and see what is blatantly obvious with their own eyes.. fuck this pathetic forum. You people are too fucking stupid.

Also, it did look odd. I thought it was fake too, but I can see it being real if the kid was on queer street and tried to get up too fast.
The more I watch it the more I think it was inexperience on the kid's part, I don't know if he has been knocked down many times before in MMA but his natural reaction would be to anticipate the ground and pound-hence the scrambling. I don't even know if Japanese MMA (or any MMA) has standing 8 counts but it's as if he had no idea he could milk a full 10 seconds off the clock by taking his full count, probably could've seen the bell for the first round too. Fury explained it perfectly after his Undertaker moment, "I needed the full count to stand a chance, if the ref saw my legs wobble after a 2 count he would've stopped the fight."
Anyway it was a mismatch of styles and weights that poor kid was tiny.
