    Macias and Taktarov had the same manager, Buddy Albin. They knew Taktarov had the better chance of beating Tank Abbott, so Macias threw the fight so Oleg would be fresh. A similar situation happened between Don Frye and Mark Hall in the Ultimate Ultimate 96.

    Macias would lose to Oleg either way, but he could've potentially given him a good struggle, as Taktarov wouldn't have the size to just ragdoll Macias like Severn did. Macias had a solid career that lasted until 2014:


      It might not quite be relevant because Amaury Bitteti does have some marked skill in BJJ, but Don Frye dropping those knees on the back of his head at UFC 9 is still one of the most harrowing/hilariously OP things i've ever seen in MMA
