Don't gasp. Fight fixing is as old as combat, and its history in the sweet science illuminates a number of issues germane to mixed martial arts such as regulatory shadiness, the star-building process, and mastery of spectator and fighter psychology.

On the latest Sherdog Radio Network "Rewind," in a "Down to Business" edition of the program, host Jack Encarnacao welcomes longtime former pro boxing manager and writer Charles Farrell, whose piece "Why I Fixed Fights" on Deadspin.com caused a splash in the combat sports conversation.

In a riveting 90-minute discussion, Farrell details the principles and mechanics behind fight fixing in boxing and opines on how mixed martial arts is structured from a business and contractual perspective. It's a complete outside-the-box view that you won't find on any other MMA podcast.
