I don't see it as "Randy screwing over fighters" but come on, you had to see this coming. It only takes one to ruin it for many. And I don't think the UFC is punishing fighters or trying to make them "mad at Randy" I just think they are taking all gray area out of things.
Now, this is something I have long felt and still do. The UFC has every right (barring some strange wording in contract) to go after Randy for a portion of that signing bonus, and it looks like they are still trying to mend the bridge by not doing it.
The Dolphins went after Ricky Williams. Barry Sanders had to pay back a chunk of his signing bonus, and now look at what Rich Rodriguez is going through at West Virginia. In most companies things like that aren't a "gift", they are dependent on you honoring and finishing the term of your contract.
