Look at Dana crying like the biaaatch that he is. Dana now comes out with all this "People who know him, know he's not the guy TV perceives him as", well where the phuck was that when Randy came back to the UFC and Dana was backstage slapping Randy thigh and cuddling into him saying "Ohhhh Randy it's sooo good having the Natural Back".
Two faced Dana at his finest right there. Good move Randy, anything to pi$$ Chromedome Dana off is a good thing for the competition.
The resident idiots agree with each other.
I didn't say that guys come from other orgs and instantly take all the belts in champ vs. champ fights, it was an implication that the organization and each division completely changes within a matter of a year or two, once all the fights can unfold... I really don't have time to look up all the dates and rankings and times, etc. to explain how the UFC was basically recycling the same fighters and fights and trying to sell it as the best fighters in the world (it's a business sure but as a fan of fighting I actually care about finding the best fighters not who can make the most money)
so before Pride we have Randy/Vitor/Chuck/Tito nonstop the only fights in between were low level warm ups for the next rematch, on top of AA & Sylvia completely dominating the HW division, again, with filler fights in between, hoping and praying Mir could get healthy again, enter reality tv and Rich Franklin is undefeated/undisputed, etc. etc.
enter: Rampage, Hendo, Overeem, Fedor, Shogun, Anderson, Nogueira, all guys we were told for years were inferior completely change the game in the US
WEC overhauls all divisions 185 and under, Sonnen ends up the clear cut #2 MW in the world, Condit gets the interim belt, Hendricks is the #1 contender, obviously MM, Cruz, Aldo, Bendo, etc. the UFC doesn't even have these divisions, WEC changes the UFC and the rankings dramatically, yada yada
SF we get guys like Mousasi and Jacare, Hendo and Diaz back, Cormier, Melendez, all are instantly going to be top of the food chain, blah blah blah
all this, I am embarrassed I even went into, just to reiterate that in my OPINION tournament formats (what Pride & UFC was built around) produce higher quality competition, resulting in more legitimate champions AND that in the sport of mma, the UFC needs a competitive organization to keep them on point, as far as Bellator, it could be any org, IFL, Pride, WEC, Elite XC, SF, it doesn't matter who it is.. they need to keep popping up and I believe it's important that people support them, whatever, damn you ZuffaZombie! how dare you make me explain anything
My recent works...
After he moved to Vegas, he had a rocky relationship with Hendo and Lindland. There were all sorts of rumors as to why that was, but I don't think either side ever aired the dirty laundry.
I think Randy's relationship with the UFC was never completely healed after his lawsuit. Things got ugly, both in the court room and in public. Remember the UFC held a press conference just to show that Randy lied about his pay, even going so far as to release copies of cashed checks. Even after they made up, I don't think either side ever forgot it.
A lot of people have an ugly side, some are just better at keeping it private.
Randy can absolutely be an asset for Bellator. I don't think he will be a game changer, but he is fairly well spoken and that will help for the reality show. He is also comfortable on camera.
