$1m bet on Weidman under Investigation

Conspiracy theories that say that the fight between Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman had a suspicious result may have won an argument on Monday. According to the website "Middle Easy", a bet worth $ 1 million (about U.S. $ 2.2 million) in the victory of Chris Weidman against Anderson Silva in the main event of UFC 162 was being investigated by police and Gaming Control Board, the body that regulates gambling in casinos in the city. The gambler's identity has not been revealed, but the high value aroused suspicions of the authorities, not being an amount common in MMA fights, even throughout major events and major American casinos. The premium to be paid would be $ 3.2 million - about £ 7 million.
The favorite on the betting exchanges was Anderson Silva, who had never lost in 16 fights in the UFC, and held many records of the event. Already Weidman, even paying only 3.2 times more than the champion for every dollar wagered, was unbeaten in his career, having won all nine fights as a professional had done.
For determination of Justice, the research runs a secret court, and the details can not be disclosed publicly.

I can't say I buy into the theories, but this certainly thickens the plot for the conspiracy theorists out there. Iv'e done a bit of digging and the source of this isn't all that reputable, but it is interesting none the less.

What's a shame is the guy who did come to fight isn't getting the credit he deserves :wink:

I think the fix was in...

I know crazy but look at this.

Silva was not acting normal, he was seriously taunting the guy to hit him. I know he does this in matches but he came out with it so fast and just kept on it, makes me wonder. He lost, he asked for no rematch? Said chris is the best. And thanked the UFC for the money hes made. lol, did he get paid by DW to take a dive?!

He didnt take a dive... Come on guys. He was being a retard and stuck his chin straight up in the air and got hit, at that point there is no avoiding getting knocked out. Major error on Andersons part. I think the guy just thought he was that much better than everyone else but when you think like that you can get surprised.

Fake.

Apart from the almost incoherent writing of that article, since when is 3.2 million $$ worth 7 million pounds? 1980 anyone?

Finally someone says it!Nobody is giving credit to Chris.Anderson did all of that showboating/taunting whatever with almost everyone of his oponents and this time it didn´t work.Why?Nobody is saying cause Chris was actually better and believed in himself.Bullshit.

Why take a dive when he could have lost by submission or even points?Dude that makes no fucking sense.People need to cut this shit.See the kind of sloppy back fist right hand that Weidman throws before the left hook that knocked Anderson?That was a genius shot cause it gave Anderson something else to dogde and get trapped in his own defense.It threw him off cause Weidman also changed his timing in the combination and made Anderson expect one hand when actually it was the other that was coming for him.
