Randy Couture was one of the greatest UFC champions ever. He held the UFC middleweight and light-heavyweight belts for multiple title reigns. But he fell foul of White after he signed a deal with Bellator. Then the boss went behind his back and offered an executive position to a future wife-beater Matt Hughes.
Couture explained how it disgusted him and left a bad taste in his mouth. He said: “they had an opportunity to keep me and use me. They chose not to, and a week later, after this whole thing leaked, they give a job to Matt Hughes in a significant fashion. Frankly, that was a big ‘f*** you’ to me from Dana. And that’s exactly what he intended to do (via Bleacher Report).”
