Quoteworthy:

"He definitely belongs to me.... There's no way I was going to let anybody come in from another organization and make more money or have better deals than my guys who have been with me for a long time and helped me build this business. To be honest, I think Randy would smash Fedor. He'll beat him easily ... Fedor is over-hyped, overrated. The guy hasn't fought anybody in the last year and a half, two years."

UFC President Dana White emphasizes once again that Randy Couture -- who recently resigned from his position as heavyweight champion -- is going to have a difficult time fighting in another organization against someone like Emelianenko in nine months when his UFC contract expires. Couture is currently on the set of The Scorpion King: Rise of The Akkadian in South Africa, appearing in the major motion picture as "Invincible."
