I've always been a fan of Randy, loved his commitment to the sport, his heart and his passion... But Randy ALWAYS (at least from what I've heard) put himself first.

Putting yourself first is fine and Dandy, negotiating hard is great - when you're still relevant. But this should be a massive wake-up call to all current fighters -

Fighters have a very limited career, and need to look beyond the next fight to what they'll do when they can no longer punch people in the face for a living... because as Randy is finding out, once you are no longer relevant as a fighter, ALL the power and control reverts back to the company...

Let's summarize -

Randy = wrestler
UFC = home for wrestlers
Randy signs for UFC and is successful
Contracts are exchanged and commitments are given
Randy decides that the UFC might not be the best place for him
Randy leaves
Randy files suit
Negotiations take place behind closed doors
Randy returns
Randy makes a couple more bucket loads of cash
Randy uses his notoriety to get into films
Randy retires

A year later Randy is surprised when the UFC hasn't offered him a job for life travelling around the world following the sport he loves mere inches outside the cage...

It appears that Randy forgot what a vicious bastard Dana can be... This is just Dana's way of reminding Randy that revenge is a desert best served cold...

You mess with the bull, eventually you're gonna get the horns

Isn't Randy doing the same thing? He's pretty much giving Dana a BIG **** YOU by appearing in another brands reality show. He should think of it in terms like that because it obviously burned Dana's ass.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

Kind of a shame that Matt Hughes, who was in my estimation a pompous meat head, is given employment with the UFC while a knowledgeable, humble, soft-spoken guy like Randy gets the shaft.

UFC's loss imo.

Randy was never humble. Multiple divorces for infidelity. Leaving the UFC for more money. lawsuits for cash. These are not the actions of a humble man.

Exactly. I see Hughes and Randy both have that meathead/jock/wrestler mentality in their personality. The difference is once Hughes got the UFC he stayed with them the whole way, while Randy was always looking for greener pastures.

I wouldn't mind seeing them fight. Hughes held his own against Tito in no-gi grappling and he's just as big if not bigger than Randy.

Agreed. Tito is freaking huge. Definitely bigger than Randy.

And Randy absolutely owned Tito in every grappling exchange when they fought.
