Randy’s broken arm

Let’s ignore for a moment the fact that the UFC has officially filed suit against Randy Couture. I’ll get to that a bit later in the day, but honestly … we were all expecting it to happen sooner or later, so past the fact that today is the day, there’s not a whole lot to say about that.

On the other hand, I wanted to take a minute or two to note the quiet machinations eminating from the Couture camp. While Dana White and the UFC have been stomping around making their actions regarding Couture crystal clear to everyone, Randy has been silently setting himself up to escape the contract he signed.

This might seem a bit ‘tinfoil hat’, but let’s spend a minute to talk about Randy’s cast. A lot of people were wondering why Randy still had the world’s largest cast on his arm during his celebrity poker tournament over the weekend. After all, the Gonzaga fight was months and months ago. Shouldn’t the arm be healed by now? Word is Randy re-broke the arm training, but I have to wonder if that’s true or not.

Think about this: the UFC offered Randy the fight against Big Nog knowing that Randy was going to turn it down. This set them up to be able to say “Look, Randy refuses to fight” in court. But with the cast on, Randy has a very straightforward reason to turn down the fight: he’s injured. And so long as he continues to be injured, the UFC cannot fault him for turning down bouts.

Anyways, I thought I’d share that little nugget of conspiracy with you.

    wow. didn’t even think about that. Can the contract really just expire? that sounds far too easy.

    Randy has a mole inside of the UFC organization. He beat them to the punch w/ the fake broken arm, a perfect excuse.

    from all that i’ve read, randy is waiting for the contract to expire. the ufc has said that since randy declared retirement, theyre waiting for him to come back to the sport where they expect him to carry out the remainder of his contract, which i assume they considered frozen in time as soon as he declared the retirement.

    we now get to watch the song and dance that occurs after PLUS we get pictures of Randy with a shit-eating(not to be confused with pee-drinking) grin on his face while he models his “broken” arm.

    I can confirm that he did re-break it during training…he was checking a kick from Jay White…

  • Lifer

    where was the super soldier serum this time?

  • fightfan

    I like that theory. I cant wait to see if he is still wearing it a couple of months from now when he is balls deep into the UFC legal shit.

  • godzillad

    He’s pulling a Cowboy Bob Orton.

  • Xavier

    Not much of a nugget, since they obviously offered him the fight once he was healed up… which is the fight he turned down.

    UFC books injured fighters all the time for matches on dates when they’re healed. SHOCK GASP OMG.

    If the lawsuit goes badly he’ll be in full traction wheeling around on a segway…
