It's shocking that post-career, some fans see a fighter doing television work for another promotion as disloyalty or a mark of low character.

Fighters need to be able to FIGHT for competing promotions during the prime of their careers, or else they will get the shaft in contract negotiations.

Did Randy do dishonest things in his career? Yes. Is this one of them? No.

The UFC doesn't own Randy, and honestly Randy made the UFC wayyyyyyyyyy more money than the UFC made him. Let him live the way he wants. Phone Post

Darup -  He does seem like a douche. He has not hesitated fucking over family, friends, acquaintances repeatedly for his own selfish reasons. Phone Post

How do know this? Oh wait you don't...

Um, it's actually in his book.
Yep.


Add in what he did to dan henderson/lindland over team quest... It's not surprising what he's done to zuffa. They are getting a bit of their own medicine though. Phone Post

And don't forget how he screwed over his "friend" who created Life Force... then Randy changed the name to Light (lite) Force, cut out his friend, and claimed it as his own.

sickdarce -  Why are you supposed to be loyal to any organization that will fire you after a couple of losses in a row?

Loyalty works both ways. Phone Post

Did they do that to Randy... or did they give him shitloads of title shots?

TryhardNobody - Totally agree. Randy should have stayed married to his 1st wife forever and named all their kids "Rico Chiperelli" whether they were boys or girls.

HeHitsMeBecauseHeLovesMe - I love Randy, but yeah, he's not the most loyal person. Haven't we all known that though? He's on like his 4th wife. Phone Post
But he takes mma twice as serious though. He has only abandoned 2 teams and only vacated the title twice. Phone Post

Brasco - He started MMA training with Rico Chiperelli back in the day and moved on and never looked back giving him no credit and moved onto superstatus in the UFC walking over anyone in his path whether it was divorcing his wife, building Team Couture with that other chick then leaving her...ect ect...now he screws the company that built his name and has done EVERYTHING for him and signed with the competition. Yes its a free country and business is business but this guy has no memory...

Screws the company?

Didnt they screw him over so bad he almost went to Pride a few years ago?

Actually when the UFC pulled a very unexpected move and released the fighter pay for once, it turned out Couture was full of shit, the UFC had paid him alot, and he was really embarassed...

eventually returning to them

LOL

Huh... That's completely in accurate....

Not only was a check produced that showed Randy was getting paid(I think it was a 500K check) but Lorenzo got involved. With Dana doing PR work on stuff like this, you have to take things with a certain grain of salt. When Lorenzo comes out and starts dropping info it's bad for the person on the other end. I don't think too many people question Lorenzo's integrity on matters like that.

you gotta be joking me, he was in a business relationship with the UFC in which both parties benefited heavily. you make it sound like the UFC was doing him favors, they weren't, they are just as much about the bottomline as couture and would never have promoted him if he wasn't an amazing draw that made them boatloads of cash.

he isn't making boatloads of cash with the UFC anymore, of course he's going to be looking elsewhere for income. Zuffa sure as hell hasn't had any qualms about moving on.

SEG screwed Randy over, he had an exclusive contract that provided him with "training expenses". He was supposed to receive money every month, but SEG stopped paying it. So Randy left, yes he was the champion, but he had to eat. Back then it wasn't like today where he had endorsements etc.

The UFC wasn't run then like it is today for good or bad.

That said I don't see anything wrong with what he's doing now, but if I had an opportunity to go into business with him I wouldn't do it.

This is so fucking stupid. It's like saying "Oh, you worked at Apple for 8 years and now you're getting a job at Google? What a fucking asshole you are."

Dude, Randy is no longer employed with the UFC and should be expected to seek employment with whoever gives him a good offer and he would enjoy working with. Not only that, the UFC would obviously have fired Randy at any moment during his career if it made good business sense for them and nobody would have called it a stab in the back, because business is business, right?

The stupidity of hating on Randy for this is mind-bottling.

you're wrong brah, Randy should stay unemployed as a show of loyalty to Zuffa.

Someone should look into rrandy's charity work with a certain cancer foundation... Im sure many will be swayed by it. Phone Post

Are you talking about the wristband thing? Or the black tie charity event? SMFH at this snake!

Yep! What a disgusting thing to do.

And I'm waiting for forum member White Shadow to chime in=) Where are you at this time? Shouldn't you be defending Randy's "honor" like you always do???

Rarely do you see loyalty in business, on either side, to be successful.  Not specificallythe UFC, but in general.
