    That's cool, Bean. An updated version is good, too. The other one is pretty old. Plus, the search function on this site (That everyone seems to think is sooo useful and almighty) kinda sucks.

    "Fix" is the most commonly used term.

    I dunno about that. I think people screaming "WORK!" all the time makes it the most commonly used term.

    Coleman has pretty much confirmed it was a work. An interviewer once asked him directly and he answered (as close as I can remember):

    "I took that fight for the money, I needed to take care of my family".

    The interviewer repeated the question. Coleman answered

    "I took that fight for the money, I needed to take care of my family".


    So he is not going to say YES in a recorded interview but he decided to give you his reasoning behind it. If it was real, why would he answer like that ?

    I've always used "fix" to mean "Here's an extra 5 grand - you go down in the fifth"

    Where as a "Work" would be like me fighting Lennox Lewis - it's not a "fix" per se but I have no realistic chance.

    Probably varies by region a bit.

    i could see that meaning he didn't train, and he was unprepared. but he took the fight because he needed the money. maybe he wanted to play it off so people didn't think he was a crappy fighter.

    im not sure if i have seen this fight. is the one where the announcer (it might have been bas) said takada got the heel hook because coleman had shoes on?

    I don't blame Coleman. He was one of the only stars of his day not to get a successful side job.

    Shamrock, Frye, and Tank all made money from pro-wrestling. The Gracie clan had expensive ass seminars. Maurice Smith went on to train alot of good fighters. Then there was Coleman, who fought the entire time taking the low pay.

    Uhh...didn't Hammer House make him any money? He did train Kevin Randleman, I just assume that doesn't come cheap.
