    Basically he said I probably wont fight ever again unless its fighting Fedor. Also said he felt the ufc had disrespected him financially.

    pretty much, first I heard it out of his mouth though. Dana's reply was Randy has signed with a hollywood agent and now wants to go hollywood

    How can Randy feel the UFC disrespected him financially when he negotiated the contract himself?

    I think that most of it was how much they were offering Fedor.

    What a pussyhurt bitch. If he wanted more money he should have gotten a different contract.

    He's mad because he can't fight Fedor, but then he's mad that the UFC offered Fedor what he percieved as too much? (so that they could fight)

    wtf

    randy needs to remeber one thing. When he signed his contract, he was not even in the running for #1 HW. It was questionable if he was even going to win against sylvia.

    Of course they would offer him less money than Fedor.

    He probably wouldn't be upset if he lost two in a row and was receiving 250k+ppv.

    yeah but he didnt, he wont two fights convincingly and holds the title. I think if he was looking at fighing Mirko he might have done that but now their is no challenges for him.

    He left because the UFC doesnt treat their fighters as well as they should, and he also wants to fight Fedor. Dana is tryin to subtly make randy look bad by saying shit like 'he thinks that he's accomplished everything there is to accomplish in MMA' and 'he wants to be a bigtime hollywood actor now'; because you cant just directly talk shit about captain america, a guy who so many people admire. Hes also sayin that shit to try and make it seem like the UFC didnt have any part in Randys decision to retire, in order to take attention away from the fact that they dont treat theyre fighters like they should.

    It's also obvious that Randy wants to fight fedor and Dana is obviously trying to, not so subtly, tell him 'Dont even think about it, i own you. If you wanna quit fighting completely fine, but dont even think about trying to fight in another organization because your still under contract with me.'

    In other words, Danas a fucken dick. They're obviously trying to own the whole world of MMA like Nazis and Randy really doesnt want to support that shit, especially if they arent gonna get him the fight he wants and the pay he wants.

    Its more that the Fedor situation just made it super obvious how much more the UFC can afford to pay their fighters, especially their top level fights who helped create the company like Randy. They just try to pay people as little as possible and take advantage of the fact that people have a passion for the sport and want to fight the best, which can usually only be found in the UFC.

    He said that he knew that other fighters were getting non-contract bonuses. He knew how much Quinton, Chuck, Mirko were making and he wasn't even offered those bonuses.

    It has nothing to do with not fighting out his contract money. He negotiated the 250K + ppv buys, but he's saying that in the bout agreements, other fighters are being offered less, and that he has been taken advantage of.

    He also felt disrespected in general, he's ALWAYS portrayed as the guy who doesn't have a chance against the young guy. Even when he was the champ against chuck he was the underdog I believe. He was given the fight against Chuck the first time so that chuck could beat him on the way to Tito.

    Then they signed Ricco to beat him specifically.

    I understand what he did.

    zuffa lied to him that he was the 2nd highest paid fighter when he wasnt.
    he was a fight by fight deal where he would be able to renegotiate the next contract for each fight. he probably asked for X amount, they likely replied that there was no way they could/would pay a fighter that much.

    along comes fedor and they offer $2mil/fight. randy heres about this along with all the mad bonus money that rampage, chuck, tito, etc.. are getting and gets pissed that he was lied to.

    I don't see a way for Nog to win.

    Randy is the better striker.

    His wrestling shouldn't even be talked about in the same sentence as Nogs.

    And if Jacere couldn't tap Randy in a pure grappling match what makes you think that Nog can in a MMA fight?

    Both have great gas tanks. I would pick Randy by a solid 50-45 unanimous decision.

    i really dont see nog beating randy.
    if you watch that randy-jacare grappling exhibition then youll see that randy is crafty enough not to get caught in a sub while in a bjj artist's guard.

    take that into the mma world where randy can GnP from the top... it doesnt look good for nog.
