UFC Press Conference: Firing Back At Couture
Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta will be holding a press conference Tuesday October 30 at 4 pm EST, to address the whole Randy Couture resignation.
I’m sick of this whole situation, but their are rumors that Randy Couture and Dana White have come to terms. Also, Randy and his wife released statements defending randy on their blog, but have now been taken down. We will have the key point, if any that come out of this press conference live.
