Randy Couture: ‘I Don’t Intend To Do Anymore Business With Todd Beard or Affliction In Any Way’

Steve Cofield did this lengthy interview with Randy Couture. One of the more interesting parts of it is when Cofield asks Randy about his relationship with Affliction and its co-founder Todd Beard. Here’s what he said:

Things will come out the way they come out, but I don’t intend to do anymore business with Todd or Affliction in any way. Whether or not they still manufacture the [Xtreme Couture] line down the road or not is still yet to be seen. But, you know, guys with drinking problems is what it boils down to. I’ve seen at several different professional meetings, business manager meetings, where he’s ordering shots and just out of control, and that’s not something I really want to be associated with.

Any small amount of optimism I might have had left for Affliction is officially gone.

 i love randy and everything, but how credible is he nowadays.

He basically buried Dana, Zuffa, and the UFC.

Months later he's back in good and now bashing the people he would have signed w/ to fight Fedor.

The Affliction/UFC/Couture/Fedor Soap Opera continues to entertain.

TheLurKing - Randy couture: It's not about the money, Those guys are alcoholics.

 I guess he's tired of swimming upstream against the Mojito's and Bloody Mary's!!

 The business world of MMA is crazy.

I however will produce the Xtreme Couture line of t-sjirts should Randy need it.

He has my number.

lol you're all a bunch of tools. Stop talking about shit you know nothing about. Get Danas nuts off your face for 5 seconds and tell us how you really feel.

 I've always wondered if they were drunk when they designed some of their t-shirts...... 
I know I'd have to be hammered to pay $90 for one.

I like Randy, even have a signed poster next my speedbag but he flips like a pancake. That being said, after Beard trashed him I might have done the same.

 Randy should stop discussing 'behind closed doors' business affairs. He's going to have very few people who will trust him in the future.

japetto - Considering that accusation, Randy should prepare for a lawsuit. 

That was the first thing I thought of as well. It's really not smart for someone in Randy's position to make a statement like that publicly.
