A rumor of a suspicious bet that has proliferated since the hours after Anderson Silva's knockout loss has been shot down by the agency tasked with investigating gaming activity in Las Vegas.

If Silva was going to throw a fight, you'd think it would be on some other match than the one with the closest odds someone has had against Silva in a long time. Silva vs. Bonnar would have been perfect, and he wouldn't have even lost his title.

Very good points. Although, they are so good that's what makes me think this would be the fight to throw. The Bonnar fight would have been so perfect for all those reasons, it would have garnered tons of attention. But this fight, a lot of people gave Weidman a legit shot. I think that Weidman knocking Anderson out standing was what brought attention to this fight, among other things. If Weidman got the GNP TKO, or even a quick tapout, the outcome of this fight might have been met with less incredulity and scrutiny.

I'm kind of surprised hln and nancy grace aren't all over this fight given all the drama it is causing.

If it wasn't for Daddy Chael and cousin Chris Weidman, Anderson would be on the unemployment line logging onto Monster.com right now.
