    Jim Miller has seemed to draw Pat Healy in his welcome to the big leagues fight.

    I was expecting them to just not sign Ryan until I heard he may fight Miller now I am back to thinking he never fights under the UFC banner.

    Fuck I could see Dana trying to get Randy removed from the HOF being the moody prick he tends to be.
    I really believe that people like Bill Murray or John Belushi are just as great and just as valid as Robert De Niro or Al Pacino. And I don't think you can say One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) is a better movie than Animal House (1978); they're different genres. I think they're both examples of great craftsmanship.

    Dana White Happy to Never Have to Do Business with Randy Couture Again | MMAWeekly.com

    According to White, Couture isn’t what he seems. His public persona doesn’t match the real man.

    “Randy Couture comes off as the greatest guy in the world, Captain America. He’s the furthest thing from it, and I’m happy to not be in business with him anymore,” said White during the UFC 156 media day on Thursday. “Now I don’t have to be in business with him ever again.”
    White’s comments may come as a shock to some, but he maintains they won’t be a shock to anyone that actually knows Couture.

    “99.9 percent of the people, that won’t be shocking at all, people that actually know him, not people who watch him on TV,” said White.
    Couture is a former two-division UFC champion. Only he and B.J. Penn have accomplished that feat. He coached opposite Chuck Liddell in the debut season of “The Ultimate Fighter,” and the two had one of the most famous trilogies in mixed martial arts history.

    Couture holds the record for most championship fights in UFC history with 15 title bouts. He is a legend in the sport, but White says he didn’t get to know the real Couture until 2007.

    On October 11, 2007, Couture abruptly left the UFC. He and the promotion engaged in a legal dispute. Couture essentially lost the court battle and returned to the UFC in 2008. White says it was then that he got to know the real Randy.

    “When that whole lawsuit went down, when he lied about his numbers, and lied about a lot of things, went into court and it didn’t work out for him, I’d say that’s when I really got to know him,” said the UFC president.

    That story coming from Dana White is no surprise. He will bad mouth anyone who he is unable to do business with. The problem is that I've only heard bad things about Randy come from Dana's mouth. Has anyone else ever spoke out against Randy before?

    I'm not saying it may not be true, but I use inductive reasoning here. If Randy looks good to other fighters, in pre-fights, post-fights, on TUF, to actors, then good chance that he is a good guy.

    Have his ex-wives even spoke about him?

    Pretty sure he was being sarcastic in suggesting it. IE - Dana's way of getting revenge on Randy would be letting Miller beat up his kid.

    Pretty sure Kim had some unflattering things to say about him during their divorce.

    I've heard and read ALOT of "Randy's a total prick" stories over the years.

    The way he separated from his second wife and the fact that his Team Quest teammates and business partners sided with his wife, was pretty interesting and seems pretty harsh. Things concerning the way he runs/ran Xtreme Couture in Nevada that was pretty jerk-ish, especially the way he handled Shawn Tompkins are pretty illuminating. He's also been quite mercenary in his willingness to fight those who themselves believe are close to him. And then there's his incredulity and hostility to those who even broach the subject of TRT and potential PED usage.

    These BE articles give some broad strokes on Couture's less than stellar actions. Other than that, most MMA journalists aside from Loretta take a pretty hard stance on Randy and conflict with the image of "Captain America"
