Dana White not allowing Randy Couture to corner Ryan, gave Ryan option to leave

Pretty messed up that he wont let Randy corner Ryan but it is what it is


got this off mmamania

Couture's deal with Spike ended up coming an inopportune time for his son Ryan, who was brought over from Strikeforce to the UFC recently when SF was closed down. According to Dana, he texted Ryan Couture earlier this week and said that if he wanted out of his contract to go to Bellator, Dana would be okay with that. Ryan said it was his dream to fight in the UFC though, and he wanted to stay. Dana says he responded with "this is your house and I'm honored you said that". He was happy that Ryan was staying and wants him to feel welcome, but he also said that his father won't be welcome to corner him, or even buy a ticket to shows.

agreed

I can understand hating the guy but he still should be allowed to corner Ryan at the very least

Well, if Randy going to Bellator is just a smart and good business decision for Randy to make, then Dana has the right to make a smart and good business decision for the UFC to not allow a competitors new partner (Randy) to be shown at a UFC event. Business is business.

Harsh, but as the banned guy said, business is business.

Dana really needs to chill out and not get so offended about the smallest things

Dana would rather split a family apart than just cut the guy's son.

Problem with that though is nothing is just business with Dana, he took it personal and that's the part that sucks. Randy has to worry about his future and if that was the best thing for him to do at this point in time Dana should have been OK with it.

Kinda a bitch move by Dana and I usually side with him....I wanna know what goes on behind the scenes that didn't allow Randy to get a bullshit job like liddell or Hughes.
