Dana White: “Couture is up to Something”

Rogers Sportsnet caught an interesting quote that came from UFC President Dana White when asked about the Randy Couture situation, shedding light on the reality that a potential battle between White and Couture may be closer to happening than most think:

“I think this is a bigger picture than what guys make,” White said. “Couture’s up to something, I don’t know what the endgame is here.”

“The whole thing is mind-boggling to me,” he added. “This is not Randy Couture. I’ve dealt with the guy for eight years and I would have never expected this. But he’s upset and we’ll either figure it out or we won’t.”

The disagreement on terms of the contract is still ongoing as well. White is adamant that Couture remains under contract with the UFC no matter what:

“Oh he definitely belongs to me, he’s under contract to me. No doubt about it.”

“I’ll tell you right now, there isn’t anyone in this industry that takes care of their fighters better than we do,” he added. “Sometimes it takes leaving to realize that.”

The more and more I think about it, the more White’s claim of Couture’s new agent being the cause of the problem makes sense…
