At about 6:30 he calls out Kevin Iole specifically for mentioning the inflated contract numbers in the Yahoo article.
Oh, I know. I know. Trust me. I know.
here is a bit longer clip from HdNet’s coverage:
Kenny Rice had a copy of the bout agreement’s towards the end but the way he explained Randy’s PPV bonuses was kinda confusing…….. it sounded like randy got $1 from each PPV up to 330k, and $3 of each PPV for anything over 330k… the math doesn’t really add up though if that were the case…… Hard to believe that he got No ppv bonus for the Gonzaga fight.
You can certainly understand Randy’s points and feelings. And yet has he taken the time to consider where he would be without the UFC? If Zuffa didn’t build the sport into what it is where would he be? Would he have sponsers paying him whatever, his own clothing line and be a movie star? I don’t believe so. He says it’s not just about money but that’s the only gripe I hear from him. If the UFC didn’t respect him why would they let him have a title shot right out of retirement? Plenty of people thought that was pure favoritism for Randy. Randy said when he came back he would take it one fight at a time and see where he went. What if he lost? The UFC hands him a million dollar signing bonus and he loses to Tim just to retire again. What, thanks for the million but maybe I am too old? He says Fedor is all that makes sense. Big Nog is nobody then? After all he did say he would fight him next. Every man is right in his own eyes I guess.
