Again you seem to be under the asinine assumption that the UFC NEEDED to give Randy title shot after title shot.

You know how much Randy vs Sylvia did? 534k. That's average at best. Or how about the 250 he did when he put him against Coleman when he was past it. He even gave him a soft touch in Vera so he could get another LHW title shot and he failed miserably.

Randy has never been a superstar draw.

And he should be gracious for the opportunity he got...instead he lied and bitched about the millions of dollars he was making even though he had a contract that dictated that he'd make money based on the PPVs that he failed to sell.

He went behind the UFC's head with the whole EA MMA deal and refused to sign his likeness over.

He's just generally been a guy who's been about himself. I'm all for guys getting what's coming from but I'm not for guys thinking they are bigger than the sport or bigger than their companies.

If an NFL player or NBA player had pulled this shit, hell if Rampage had pulled it we'd never hear the end of it about these "overpaid primadonnas".


This guy literally tried to sign to another organization in the middle of his contract for God's sake.

I say we make conclusions and judgements about the situations with none of us knowing half the stuff that happened between Randy and the UFC "behind the curtain".

It's hilarious to me that just because he puts on the whole humble act that people suck his dick while acting like Rampage is the scum of the Earth. Maybe Rampage should dress up in white face and put on a smile and everyone will think he's a hero while he cheats on his three wives.


You realize Randy LOST in court? You know why? Because he blatantly lied about how much money he was making. He was one of the first guys in the UFC to make millions of dollars per fight with PPV revenue and it's ******* pathetic to act like he was some kind of martyr for fighters everywhere.

What a joke.
Youd think you were the judge sitting in the courtroom the way you go on, like you know every single detail of the case perfectly clean. The fact is you don't and your basing your opinion on nothing. Because lets face you it don't know the fine details of that case, other then a randy interview about not being happy with what he was getting, danas various interviews slagging randy and then a lost court case. Thats all you know and you think one of the greatest champs in the sports history is a joke because of it. Good one

I just find it hard to understand why people would have hate for Randy. He's the reason I started watchin the sport and became a fan. A guy winning against the odds and doin it for so long deserves respect. For a guy that age to even step in to the ring with machida like he did at that age takes serious stones. That alone merits respect. Never mind his outboxing of chuck and his destruction of many bigger stronger faster guys. So what if he fought with the boss over pay, who gives a shit about that? Surely peoples views of him should be determined from his time in the ring and his achievements there.

Given what happened yeah! Not too many fighters around these days with the couture mentality loving the challenge of competition. That is slowly but surely disappearing

Lets see...

He constantly leaves the promotion or "retires", then comes back and negotiates an immediate unearned title shot without any sort of contender fight whatsoever. For a guy with a 19-11 record, it's amazing how almost half of those 30 fights are title fights.

He acts all humble but beneath his veneer he's very cocky and condescending to other fighters. He commented on how Sylvia was a play-it-safe fighter, how Chuck beat him because he "got on his bike and backpedaled" from him and how it was because he was going through a divorce, how Lesnar was too green, then after the fight beat him because of "long arms" and gave him no credit whatsoever etc.

He cheated on and divorced not one not, not two, but three wives. If you're gonna keep doing random girls, then at least don't keep getting married.

Yeah a total nice guy that Captain America.

Dana has it right, Couture has some very good PR and a nice guy politeness, but it's all show.

But yeah Dana's a douche too so whatever.

The dude is far from a saint, dont get me wrong. I've read his book. But I tend to respect guys for their work in the cage. Same as I have huge respect for chael and even matt hughes despite his personality
