In a recent interview with MMAWeekly, Randy “The Natural” Couture responds to the lawsuit filed against him by the UFC for breach of contract.
“It’s unfortunate that things have kind of degraded to that point……..I’m sure that’s part of their ploy, to force me to spend enough money that I’ll have to come back and fight for them, which isn’t the case.”
“I’ve got a very good team of lawyers. I think we’ll basically have to get a declaration from the state of Nevada on what they interpret the contract as, but the way I see it, the contract is up in July.”
“Like trying to ban my clothing line, and things like that that don’t really hurt me, they just hurt the athletes that we sponsor……We sponsor some 35 athletes with that clothing line, and give back to the sport in every way we can. We’re already in Nordstrom’s and Macy’s and all the big outlets, so it just takes away from money that the athletes are getting from their sponsorships. It’s kind of stupid.”
“I’m not worried about clearing my name, I haven’t done anything wrong…..I’m simply wanting to pursue the profession that I’m in, which is fighting. And they’re trying to prevent me from doing that, so you tell me who’s wrong or right?”
The UFC is doing everything it can to disgrace the current UFC heavyweight champion, doing a great job of not filming Randy Couture as he recently cornered Extreme Couture fighter Tyson Griffin at UFC 81 in Las Vegas.
If you payed close attention, the UFC filmed Griffin from a lower position as he made his way to the cage, Couture’s bald head could only be seen briefly as he followed his fighter to the cage. After Griffin gives his post-fight interview with Joe Rogan, Couture has his arm draped over Griffins shoulder, but all you can see is Couture’s arm and watch.
It is amazing how well they planed and executed the filming of that fight, but ultimately it making me as a fan feel discussed at the UFC, a company that did so much to build this sport.
