Straight away, the show’s hosts hit White with questions about accusations that Anderson Silva threw the fight against Chris Weidman at UFC 162 on July 6...

Edit - My fault, misread the title.

Wow just watched the SI roundtable in question. Did any of them actually watch the fight? Gray is a moron and should do a bit more research

Ah yes, Dana White being a class act as usual. It's a riot when he claims "integrity of the sport" as a reason there would never be a fix.

I agree with his point that everyone talked about how Chris would sub him had a fix been in he would have let Chris take that kneebar or let him grab the ankle. Letting himself get brutally knocked out isn't the path.

He got KO'd for being a clown, end of story. If he was going to throw the fight I would thin he would of at least took it into the later rounds.

As Dana said if he was to throw a fight why not let Bonnar hold him up a fence for 15 minutes, he goes away unscathed, Bonnar looks like the best fighter to ever grace the octagon, the odds are amazing, the fights at 205 so people can just say Bonnar was too big for him as Bonnars a big 205er. He still has his belt and for the next 185er who wants to fight him trying that gameplan he'll Muay Thai clinch them.

Then Bonnar woulda tested positive anyway!!!

No question in my head the fight wasn't fixed.
Silva just got overconfident after he stood back up and Weidman started failing takedowns.

It was all going his way so he lost interest and got careless.

ESPN once claimed MMA wasn't a sport to. Nothing to see here folks.

What I learned. The Beibler can watch UFC illegally and it's a joke.
I do it it's a crime................So funny yet so tragic.

Overall pretty entertaining.
