Time Magazine covering UFC vs Randy Couture
Time Magazine is covering the Randy Couture/UFC resignation. There isn't any new detail or any ground breaking shit, but atleast a media outlet as big as Time Magazine is covering the sport. Although this may not be the best of circumstances any press is better than no press. The article basically sums up what most people should know if they been around the last few weeks. But these guys aren't shy about taking digs at the UFC:
Now that facade is beginning to crumble. Liddell, who was recognizable enough to have an episode of HBO's Entourage focused on him, has lost two fights. Ortiz has been in an ongoing feud with White about contractual issues. ("Until Dana White is ready to fight me on a professional basis," said Ortiz at one point, "I strongly urge him to keep his mouth shut.") And now comes Couture's outbursts about money and White's counterattack. "At the end of the day we treat our fighters right," says White. "The whole thing makes no sense. I felt like I got kicked in the throat." This is one no-holds-barred battle that Ultimate Fighting doesn't want.
