I’ve been involved, in and around Mma for a good ten years. One of the things I’ve noticed that has never really changed about it is people shouting “fix” at any available opportunity.

Great article. As with any sport talks of Fixed matches or games will always be around. Great to hear Thompson's take on this.

Excellent article. It's a shame he never fought in M-1 because if I was to pick any place that a fix would be in, it would be M-1. Glancing at his record, I almost hope he hangs em up soon, there is a serious number of KO losses.
