I just found this...
Scott Henze will instead take on an up-and-coming fighter out of Louisville MMA, Brent Weedman.
DO NOT TAKE WEEDMAN LIGHTLY!! The kid is 4-0 with all four of his wins being solid finishes and KNOCKOUTS!
I think it was Brent Weedman. :notworthy
Alright. Don't know that guy then.

I don't know if you could call it a work, but Sakuraba vs. Ken Shamrock was a complete fucking disgrace, if I were Sakuraba I wouldn't dare accept that kind of "victory".
Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.
I'm surprised that you've been around the site since 2003 and haven't noticed that this topic HAS had it's own threads... A ton.
According to MMA fighters/commentators I've spoken to, all Takada fights have been works save for the Rickson and Cro Cop ones (someone on Sherdog once posted a supposed translation of a Japanese interview with Takada admitting this), and Coleman's payback for dropping the fight to Takada was Fujita backing out of the GP to give Coleman a by to the finals (after pulling Shoji for his quarterfinal opponent, who just held on and ate body shots, basically leaving Coleman only Vovchanchyn as a real opponent for the whole night). Sakuraba's first fight, the one vs. Kimo, was a dive that Kimo was apparently not informed of, and that's about it for major name fights.
I should quit paying to go to these sporting events if there are fixed. I'll just start watching wrestling again. :confused1
