10.26.2007 - 2:28:00 PM - Randy Couture Presser Info.

Randy Couture also held a press conference yesterday to shed some light on his recent resignation from the UFC, as the UFC HW Champ and an ambassador for the UFC. While really no big news came out of the presser it was still worthy of watching.

ProElite.com streamed the press conference live but apparently had some technical difficulties. Nevertheless, the whole presser can be seen at ProElite.com now.

Ben Fowlkes over at 5 Oz. has an awesome recap of the events. If you're not going to watch the whole presser this will definately give you the pertinent details you need. Here is a good passage from the article:

Despite his dominating performance against Gonzaga, the UFC did not offer him a bonus, according to Couture. He said that when he asked why, he did not receive answer. Couture said he waited two and a half weeks for an explanation after a face-to-face meeting with White, before ultimately deciding to tender his resignation.

"I gave them a chance to respond. I didn't understand why I got overlooked and didn't get a bonus in my last fight," Couture said. "I gave them a chance to respond. I don't understand why I didn't get a response."

Couture also said that media reports claiming he was due to receive several million dollars per fight under his current contract were flatly untrue. He later said that he came out of retirement to fight for the UFC heavyweight title after turning down a $3 million dollar offer from the Bodog organization for a match with Fedor Emelianenko.

"That's more money than I've ever been offered to fight," Couture said of the Bodog offer.

Couture went on to suggest that the UFC's failure to sign Emelianenko was a factor in his decision, as well, saying, "At this point in my career it's the only fight that really makes sense for me."
Adam Morgan of 5 Oz. also has his own recap up here.

Here are a few videos of the Press Conference:
