Another day, another press conference

If Randy Couture thought this whole UFC situation would go away after he came back to answer questions, he was very very very very very very wrong: ( has learned that UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta and UFC president Dana White have called a press conference for tomorrow at 4 p.m. ET/1 p.m. ET.

It will be interesting to see if this is gonna be another “We love Randy, he’s our friend” situation, but I dunno … the fact that Lorenzo is gonna be there makes me think the shit-kicking shoes have been put on. Anyways, I’m not going to speculate on what’s going to happen. What I will do is live blog the conference, which will be streaming live on

So there you have it people. Tune in tommorow around 4pm for another live-blogged Couture related conference.

  • Atom says:

    You better pee beforehand THIS TIME. I’m glad we get to hear it from the L.Fert this time too.

  • Mr. Theplague says:

    Ooooh shit. This is either going to be some sort of Randy beat-down, or they’ll announce that they kissed and made up. It’s got to be big, being so soon after the last one, right?

  • Tommy says:

    Has Lorenzo ever done this before or is this unprecedented ? People quickly call Dana a liar but Lorenzo? He’s the kinda guy that can show you all the contracts and checks. Guess we’ll see tomorrow.

  • kentyman says:

    […] I’m not going to speculate on what’s going to happen […]

    That’s like an Asian porn site saying they’re not gonna show bukkake. Where’s the obligatory speculation circle-jerk I’ve become so accustomed to?!

  • Mr. Theplague says:

    kentyman’s back in top form!

  • Xavier says:

    Prediction: They kissed and made up. It’s why Couture’s blog removed those posts, likely. They’re going to announce that there were misunderstandings and that they’ve sat down and worked them out.

    Lorenzo opened the checkbook.

  • Matt says:

    Hopefully they will address more pressing issues like who farted when Joe was interviewing Silva.

  • Jaiden says:

    I hope its positive. The UFC has no credibility with me, as an outsider looking in, when considering the way they treat their fighters. Especially when it comes to pay. Although they may have have some legitimate talking points, they should instead try to seek absolution and start doing what’s right.

    The way I see it, the UFC is headed toward an abrupt decline. They are so flippant at times that they can’t read all of the signals…

  • AlexK says:

    I hope you’re right, Xavier.

    Another possibility might be that Zuffa is starting up the legal war machine. Maybe this conference will announce a lawsuit 😛

    UFC… now on CourtTV!

  • Ted Dibiase says:

    i hope you’re right, Matt

  • matt (tapout name shitstain) says:

    Randy sees a payday with lesnar. Believ e dat.

  • Tommy says:

    I don’t think it’s for him to comeback. It’s just really unlikely. I believe they would make Randy announce that. X I believe they removed the posts trying to calm things down is all but maybe, hopefully your right. The UFC site says it’s to address Randy’s recent comments so that doesn’t lead me to think it’s an unresignation.

  • islandguy says:

    Nah, they ain’t going to be nice. They are going to “address recent statements made by Randy Couture” they say. You strike at a king, you better kill him.. Dana certainly considers himself to be a king.. and he could not bear to hit back twice as hard at anyone who dares take a poke at him. It’s a point of honor. They are going to trash him good, just to show that they can..

  • islandguy says:

    i meant to say ” .. bear NOT to hit back…”

  • hbdale309 says:

    They’ve either made up w/ Randy or they are going to war w/ Couture. I’m feeling the latter. Get ready to fade into a Bolivian, Randy.

  • Xavier says:

    Only reason it seems odd that they’re going to “war” is that if you read up on the Fertitas in general, they’re not much like Dana when it comes to going to battle in public. Most people quote them as being very nice, mostly soft-spoken individuals.

  • Tommy says:

    Your definitely right there X, but I still don’t know. Seems like Randy and his girl might have pushed the right buttons this time. I don’t believe it’s war really. Not much to gain in public war with Randy, that’s better handled in court. However I think Lorenzo’s words could hold alot more weight then Dana’s. Plus it might not be Dana’s choice to go public with ‘the numbers.’ The Fertitta’s can do as they damn well please. We’ll see tomorrow though. This might be better then their weak ass 78 card.

  • Ted Dibiase says:

    this is gonna be a war, flat out balls to walls warfare.

    randy crossed the line. he hit below the belt. he broke the honor code when he “bitch slapped” kevin iole. dana and the ferritas will not stand for this. theyre fighting for kevins honor.

  • Andrej says:

    To call ufc 78 weakass mean’s you are a joke. Lack’s a main event but has a strong Card up to down (minus main event).

    I’m curious to hear what Lorenzo say’s about this mess. I hope Dana White step’s down as president of the UFC and find’s a corner office job.

  • Tommy says:

    Ed Hermin vs David Terrell….Rashad vs Bisping are jokes. So far I see three good fights that night (Houston vs Thiago, Houston wins easy…Karo vs Ryo, just damn good…Spencer vs Frank, maybe good maybe not) because the rest are TBA. Three good fights for a card is a joke.

  • Terrell’s return is pretty interesting … and now they’ve got Alves vs Lytle as mentioned in another post. All of these matches are pretty good for the more educated fan, but it’s a really cerebral card. There’s no real pop in it for the average guy past OMG HOOSTON ALEXANDAR AND TUF WINNERS LOLOLOLOOL

  • Tommy says:

    Terrell is Canadian huh. That’s why you care. He should do better as a middle I guess though. He sucked heavy as a light heavy.

  • stellar53 says:

    I think this card is going to be a great night of fights. It is pretty hard to get Forrest, Tito, Randy, GSP or The Iceman to fight every other month…..there are only so many “big” names in the UFC that are going to draw in a shitload of people. Rashad and Bisping are both well known by the new/tuf fan. Herman (not Hermin) vs. Terrell could be an awesome fight. Houston vs. Thiago, someone is getting knocked the fuck out. Chonan/Karo…awesome fight. Edgar/Fisher…..etc.

    I really want to see the J-Lau fight and the Barn Cat fight but don’t see that happening…

  • nametags says:

    Good day! I could have sworn I’ve been to this web site before but after going through many of the articles I realized it’s new to me.

    Regardless, I’m definitely happy I came across it and I’ll
    be book-marking it and checking back regularly!

  • It’s an awesome post designed for all the web people; they will obtain benefit from it I am sure.

  • trophies says:

    Sweet blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News.
    Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News?

    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Cheers
