In a new report from Adam Swift at Sherdog, Randy Couture’s manager, Matt Walker, refutes claims from the Yahoo Sports report earlier in the week that Randy was making 3.25-3.75 million per fight:
“When I first read the story on Yahoo! I actually laughed because they are so far from fact,” said Walker.
“If he were getting $3.25-$3.75 million a fight then Randy’s compensation would not be an issue,” said the agent, who was lambasted by White as a Hollywood parasite after Couture announced his resignation on Oct. 11. “However, I can tell you those salary numbers for Randy are severely inflated and I would love to know where they got the information.”
This war of words is starting to heat up and is highly entertaining in my opinion. Walker declined to comment on Couture’s contract, but said everything will make sense once the “dust settles.”
Now, which internet site can Dana pin this one on? Where are those “inflated numbers” coming from now? Oh, why they’re coming from the internet mouthpiece of the UFC right now, Yahoo! Sports. Who’s to blame now?
This is the last I hope we ever have to hear about these “crazy internet sites” from Dana anymore. When your own internet media mouthpiece has just been bitchslapped by Randy’s manager for reporting inflated numbers, you can no longer use the internet sites as a scapegoat.
You’ve got your culprit, now leave us alone.
