From an interview with MMAyou.com:

MMAyou.com: Here’s a question from one of your fans that I thought was a really good question. Why did the Pride judges hate you so much?

Mezger: You know, I’ll tell you truthfully man, I wouldn’t play ball with them on certain things. They wanted me to do certain things that’s just not something that I’m gonna do. It’s against my, kind of my moral code and I think it pissed them off because I’m not gonna do some of the stuff that they wanted me to do

Mezger had some bad sd's against him in pride. Shame. I always liked Mezger, reminds me of a "what could have been" story because he was a pretty well rounded guy that just couldn't catch a break. And had a fantastci war against Wand.

It's just a good website with some interesting stuff on it.......

Pretty good find. Haven't other guys complained about that kind of thing before or was it just rumors?

There have always been rumors of some shady stuff going down in Japan so Mezger's statements don't really surprise me.

Guys like Rampage came out and said they were offered money to throw fights. It seems fairly obvious that there were quite a few fixed fights in Pride.

He wasn't offered money to throw them, he was offered money to be wreckless and either kill or be killed.

He said he got offered money to lose by submission in certain rounds. I could be remembering wrong, but I'm fairly certain. Either way a lot of sketchy offers went down there.
