Unhappy the Anthony Pettis Showtime Kick on Ben Henderson was scripted/fake!

Why Anthony Pettis' Showtime Kick Could Ruin MMA | Bleacher Report

It was the final minute of the final round of the final fight in WEC history, with the title on the line. The entire company and everyone involved in it is about to make a scary and risky merger with the UFC. The event, and more importantly the fight, had to be a success.

Luckily for them, they couldn't have "scripted" a better farewell.

I see a somewhat awkward break in the action. Pettis backs Henderson up against the cage, throws a half-assed kick that misses, and then—it happens. They break into a beautifully choreographed scene of betrayal and headkicks I just can't believe no matter how many times I see them.

They make eye contact, there's a brief nod, and Henderson proceeds to lift his leg and touch the corner with his left foot. Wiping off his foot, perhaps? Possibly making sure the cage was still behind him? If only.

Ever notice Decorated corpses are walking talking broken records? like yourself. repeat repeat repeat. Im guessing you're the type of scum that would laugh at kids that would be graded poorly in middle school...such devoted hatred...how much attention did your parents give you as a newly born demon spawn? not much im assuming.

As for the topic at hand, yes that delay looks odd.

If anything in the WEC or UFC I've seen that might be fake it's that. It looks soooo suspicios. At first I was like everyone else spazzing about it because it looks so awesome but then someone pointed it out to me and you can clearly see him do what could be seen as a signal for something and then it happens. Looks fishy.

Why would they ****** Pettis to win by that kick and then have him lose to Guida in his next fight, AND THEN have Guida lose to Bendo who lost to Pettis? It makes no fucking sense, but then again this forum is chock full of retard conspiracy theorists.

the reason bendo put his foot on the fence like that is, he was getting ready for a superman punch of the cage but pettis didnt approach him

Agreed.

I remember at one point Ben Henderson had a rear naked choke on Pettis and just let it go instead of tapping him (or the worst BJJ ever). I've only watched it once but at the time, thats how it looked. I was thinking its the last WEC fight so they had a agreement to go 25 minutes and entertain everyone.

i agree that the "UFC/ZUFFA" doesn't give a shit about who wins.. they can market any fighter and the fact that Lesnar retired when they "could" have milked his PPV draw more if they planed out fights.. but he lost his first and last fight. MMA is real

but. 1 out of 100 fights has some element agreed upon/discussed/scripted.. 1 fight in every 5 events is a work
