When former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight champion Randy Couture signed a multi-year deal with Bellator MMA, UFC president Dana white was elated because that meant he never had to work with the Hall of Famer who, in Dana's words, "stops being a man when his big toes step out of the cage."
So why the animosity?
According to White, Couture was never honest with him when asked about the possibility of jumping ship to the UFC's former home, Spike TV. After it was discovered "The Natural" had indeed made the switch from the UFC and Fox to Bellator and Spike TV, White unloaded on Randy and his 'lies.'
But, now that one Couture made his way out of the UFC, there is another ready to make his way in.
Ryan Couture, son of Randy, will look to make his debut with the promotion sometime this year after he was one of the select fighters from the now defunct Strikeforce organization who received a contract with the worl...

When former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight Champion Randy Couture put pen to paper last week and joined the ranks of Spike TV, UFC President Dana White said he was happy.
Not happy as in "Good for him," happy as in "Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out."
As it turns out, the Las Vegas fight boss already...
Before this season of “The Ultimate Fighter” started UFC President Dana White said that this season had the most brutal knockout he has ever seen in the UFC or an any other promotion. That’s a pretty big statement from a guy who has seen hundreds of knockouts so it was taken with a grain of salt.
After the knockout Hall became the most feared man in the competition according...
Is this the moment where we realize Rashad Evans is no longer at the top of the light heavyweight division, or is this the moment where the former champion turns himself around after an unprecedented two fight losing streak and decides he’s still hungry for this game of MMA. After making a reported $300,000 for [...]
Dana White might be critical of his performance, but that didn't stop the UFC from making Rashad Evans the highest paid fighter at UFC 156. In a losing effort Evans took home $300,000 (if he had won he would have earned another $210,000).
Here is the official fighter purse info for UFC 156, released from the Nevada Athletic Commission.

If you've been watching The Ultimate Fighter 17 Sonnen vs. Jones then you've seen this crazy knock out. It was just the second fight of the season and Uriah Hall of team Sonnen knocked the crap out of Adam Cella on Tuesday's episode with a huge heel kick to the face. Dana White said it was the craziest knock out he's seen in his fighting career. Check out the...
No fight team had more on the line at UFC 156 than the talented Blackzilians. The squad’s top two superstars were on display: Alistair Overeem (Pictured) returned from a nine-month steroid suspension would have earned a shot at Cain Velasquez’s heavyweight crown with a win over Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, while Rashad Evans could have found himself in a tango with middleweight...
The flirtation between Josh Barnett and Dana White ended exactly as you expected it would.
In case you missed it last night, UFC President Dana White was Tweeting like crazy about a knockout in the fight on last night’s The Ultimate Fighter on FX. Granted, he didn’t realize that he was spoiling it for the entire west coast, but in White’s defense – as you can see in the above GIF – it was f*cking awesome.The man flashing that wheel kick was Uriah Hall, who is...
After losing another championship fight via decision where he thought he had done enough to win, a disappointed Frankie Edgar (Pictured) said it was too soon to decide whether he’d return to the lightweight division where he recently held the title or remain in the featherweight class.
Unfortunately (or fortunately) for “The Answer,” UFC president Dana White saw enough in Saturday’s...

Wow. Just, wow. The roundhouse kick that Uriah Hall planted right on the side of Adam Cella’s head was one of the worst looking KO’s we’ve seen in a long time. The fight was aired during last night’s episode of The Ultimate Fighter 17.
Hall, who has already been impressing UFC brass, showed no hesitation. A mere :06-seconds into the match and he had already connected with...
