Randy Couture’s blog has been abuzz the past two days with lots of content direct from the source, including:
But my favorite blog by far from there has to be the huge rant against Kevin Iole’s ‘pissing match’ with Couture. Here’s some of my favorite excerpts:
It would appear you are either peeved that Randy (rather politely) singled you out for publishing numbers that were apparently unsubstantiated, or you are carrying water for Dana White – who has created a huge PR nightmare for himself by a.) letting this happen in the first place, and b.) making matters worse by turning it into a pissing match.
You neither reported the true intent of Randy’s message, nor shed any light on this senseless falling out. You simply itemized the various accusations and counter-accusations and wrapped it in a blanket statement that says something to the effect that: “athletes are all liars – they’re just in it for the money – move along folks – nothing to see here-.”
But instead of clearing up the discrepancy, you unceremoniously threw the apparently factual numbers into the mix with the old apparently un-factual numbers – offering no account for the gaping difference and no apology for what appears to have been pretty sloppy journalism first time around.
