        I know I was thinking the same thing. Didnt want to strike but played into Cormiers game? Something is up!

    Rumour has it Rumble was being extorted by some bad dudes who were threatening him if he didnt throw the fight. They made a lot of money betting on Cormier and Rumble did what was asked but obviously wanted out. Too bad he’s a great fighter but who wants to be f-ed with.
