Sensational headline? You be the judge, per a quote from UFC president Dana White on Thursday that appears in the Canadian Press:
With the UFC suing heavyweight champion Randy Couture over Couture’s decision to walk away from his contract, the heavyweight title remains in limbo. White challenged Couture on Thursday to end the infighting.
“Come on Captain America, step up and be a man and give these guys the opportunity to win the title,” White said.
“He’s the heavyweight champion. He signed a contract with us less than a year ago and I expect him to honour it. And I expect him to be a standup guy and give these guys the opportunities they gave him.”
What is this, pro wrestling, where the departing vet has to “pass the torch” to the younger fighters? Last time I checked, MMA was an actual sport. What’s next, comparing Couture to Hulk Hogan for refusing to put anyone else over?
