Randy Couture Quits UFC
Randy Couture has quit UFC and vacated his Heavyweight Title. Couture wrote a letter to Dana White informing him of his decision from South Africa where he is currently filming the new Scorpion King movie.
Not getting a match with Fedor Emelianenko, as well as not getting as much guaranteed money as UFC apparently offered Fedor, played a role in Couture leaving. Couture felt that he and a few others helped build UFC’s current popularity and felt slighted by not getting the money that UFC was ready to give Fedor.
