Dana White issues further comment on Randy Couture

Steve Cofield from Fox Sports Radio and ESPN Radio is in Cincinnati to cover UFC 77 this Saturday. Cofield attended a UFC press conference and is attributing the following quote to UFC president Dana White in regard to Randy Couture’s UFC departure:

“I haven’t talked to (Couture) at all. His resignation didn’t surprise me at all. It’s the way he did that surprised me. It was done very Hollywood with his agent releasing a statement. The whole thing was pretty shitty. He’s up to something.

“He lost twice to Chuck Liddell. And then he called me up after a year and said I want to come out of retirement…I’d like to re-work my contract. He just signed a contract that he was thrilled with eight months ago. He never came to me and said can we do a new contract!”

So White is still blaming Couture’s film agent for the decision and doesn’t appear to seem hesitant on offering his feelings on how Couture announced his resignation.

I also can’t help but notice the little cheap shot at Couture where he makes a point to mention that he “lost twice to Chuck Liddell.”

Cofield will be doing shows from Cincinnati on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Houston Alexander is scheduled to be a guest today with Cofield on ESPN 920 in Las Vegas (stream available at at 8 p.m. ET and Dana White and Kenny Florian will be joining Cofield tomorrow on Fox Sports Radio 1460 ( between 8-10 p.m. ET. Cofield will be on again on FSNR 1460 after UFC 77 from 1 a.m. to 3 a.m. ET.

  • I don’t think it’s a cheap shot, I think it’s a legit point to make to everyone who is acting like Dana White pissed on Jesus’ leg Easter Morning.

  • Dana is butt-hurt. Plain. And. Simple.

    Dana is being exposed for the cheap skate he is.

  • urabozoo says:

    I find it funny that Dana loves someone and thinks he’s the best thing ever until that person does something to piss Dana off. Then that person becomes the worst thing Dana has ever seen. Grow up Dana. All that UFC money that buys you cars and fixes your teeth has gone to your head.

  • […] Blamed the whole situation on Randy’s ‘Hollywood agent”. This is a brilliant case of deflection because, as we said, Randy is practically a saint in MMA. […]

    How much class do you expect a man to display that would employ the likes of a Joe Rogan? Quite easily one of the biggest pigs in all of entertainment but Zuffa treats him like he’s some kind of knowledgeable, professional sports commentator. The guy is simply a low class porn slob that treats women like crap. He’s a loser and a tool. You can expect much more of his employers.

  • Sam Caplan says:

    You call the man a pig and then you speak in generalities. How’s that fair?

    What are you talking about?
