    DW clearly states that his opinions on RC are about what RC does outside of the octagon. Inside the octagon, DW says he has a ton of respect for RC.

    Granted, the truth is somewhere out there, but to listen to DW's account, RC sounds like a dodgy guy to deal with.

    - Sued the UFC, lying about what bonuses he was paid and how much. DW goes public and says that he can show you the cancelled cheques.
    - Told DW that he was not leaving his FOX contract unfulfilled and was not signing with Spike/Bellator. Left his contract unfulfilled and signed with Spike/Bellator.

    I don't think that DW's account is very far from the truth here. RC seems very much like a guy that wants to take advantage of every opportunity that he can get his hands on, regardless of who he lets down along the way.

    Pretty safe to say the turth layes somewhere between the two sides opinion, and DW says what ever is on his mind at the time.
    Randy is a awsome fight planner to beat almost anybody, but he never strung together a nough wins to earn all the title shots he got. Yes he still had to perform or the title shots would of ment nothing. It takes two to argue and there two arguing.lol.

    That would be a good poll question.

    Whether or not Randy is utterly ungrateful for his career in the UFC.
    I think it is pretty clear he is. Why wouldnt you want to be on a FOX sports desk breaking down the sport that made you millions? Randy gave up FOX sports for Spike tv,its very obvious he only cares about himself and for some reason believes he made the right move in being partnered with Bellator.

    It's like Jeff Probst going from Survivor to Big Brother, it aint gonna fucking happen.

Not to mention his championship defense rate is laughable, but the UFC kept turning it around for him. The deal he got with Bellator is because of the UFC marketing machine.

    Some is related to Dana but we have all seen or heard things about pretty much everyone on the list that isn't positive that had little or nothing to do with Dana.

    Dana gets his feelings hurt easily and says irrational things to the press. He's been pretty consistent about that for years now. Off the top of my head, Nick Diaz- (currently schedule to fight GSP) has been banned for life from the UFC before by Dana and Josh Barnett (currently making waves with strong rumors of a UFC contract) has been banned for life from the UFC before by Dana. Ya'll remember how Nate Marquardt was once banned? Dana saying someone is banned forever simply means that he needs a few nights of rest to get over his hurt ego. But here's the thing- Randy doesn't owe the UFC anything. He earned his rank with blood and chuck liddell concussions. He should be able to do what he chooses without having to worry about Dana's egg shell feelings being hurt, and Dana should learn how to be professional and seperate PERSONAL feelings from BUSINESS transactions. So Randy is now banned from the UFC forever huh? Anyone want to bet that we see Randy commentating in the UFC again by the end of 2014? ...anyone?
    I can't believe Dana was so hurt that he went crying about it to Ryan, Randy's son. Gimme a break, who does that?

    Reason I will not watch Randy's new endeavour?

    I am boycotting Spike due to it being a station of re-runs.

    I am boycotting Bellator because Bjorn Rebney is a prick who sues fighters and I don't really care about Bellator besides the later rounds of their tournaments.

    If I watch a Bellator fight it will be via a stream. No ad revenue for them via my single viewership.

    Oh noes. I am a UFC fanboi.
