    It seems to be quite popular theory nowadays to think that UFC fights are "staged" or at least "fixed" but let´s hear what are the most entertaining/most fucked up conspiracy theories you have heard about martial arts/combat sports

    Lizard people run the IBJJF and won't give Jordon a Black Belt unless he assassinates the president of FIFA.
    Of the single rapier fight between valiant men, having both skill, he that is the best wrestler, or if neither of them can wrestle, the strongest man most commonly kills the other, or leaves him at his mercy.

    Ninja Masters keep all the real deadly stuff to themselves. Only special disciples get to learn it.


    The Gracie Challenge did not take all comers and many martial artists were refused because the Gracies were scared.

    According to TMA and RSBD teachers the people you will be fighting in self defense situations (jumpings, bar fights, muggings, terrorist attacks, crooked police, rapists, hooligans, Antifa, Alt-Right, etc.) are lazy, fragile, slow, inexperienced, and stupid. There is no need to be fit when you know the techniques.

    This implies there is some sort of Attackers Guild or Union with strict physical and mental limitations on membership.
