Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Quote of the Day: ‘[Expletive] Sandwiches’

Randy Couture on TAGG Radio, via MMA Junkie:

“In kind of coming up with some strategies with my attorneys to open some dialogue with the UFC, I sent (UFC President) Dana (White) a nice text,” Couture explained. “I told him I was on [an MMA forum], and there were some guys that were bagging on him — no surprise there. They were saying that he likes to eat [expletive] sandwiches.

“I told [Dana] that I stuck up for him, and that there was no way that could be true because he doesn’t even like bread.

“It’s true. I sent him that text, and he texted me right back — laughing his ass off — saying, ‘I’d love to talk to you. We can enjoy some [expletive] sandwiches together.’ That started the whole thing.”

Later in the show, Couture stated that he hoped Fedor Emelianenko would be the second in his current three-fight deal with the UFC, then got all IFL on our ass, explaining that the UFC’s fighters should have health coverage like the employees of any other corporation:

“If we’re talking about buying some cold medicine, go buy some damn cold medicine. But if you actually have some medical expenses that would normally be covered by some kind of medical insurance that we don’t have, then maybe the UFC in their infinite wisdom could cover some of these things. And they’re considering some of those things seriously. They are at least willing to listen to some of the issues that we have as fighters.”

That clears it up for me. I thought it was 'cock sandwich'.

The "shit sandwich" line isn't original, I have been using it for more than a decade. I can't even remember when I first heard it.

I'm not an insurance agent, but maybe they aren't qualified for health insurance because they are professional fighters, and thier risk for serious injury is much higher than the average person. The insurance companies probably think they would lose too much money by covering them. It sucks, but thats what I would bet my money on.

I'm surprised that there's been no talk of fighters unionizing yet. Or maybe there has and I just don't know about it. Either way, I hereby officially nominate Randy Couture as union president.

@ "Pickledick"

GOOD POINT! That does NOT sound like something a confident fighter would say!

Regardless, I'm surprised to hear that the fighters in UFC don't even have health insurance. I suppose that their business relationship with the UFC is the same as an independant contractor. That kinda sucks.

I know a lot of noise has been made around here about how little MMA fighters make. At this point, I don't know why anyone would want to choose it as a career. Sure, I understand the warrior who is gonna do it no matter what, but if you're not someone like Chuck Liddell, you're probably gonna make beans and take a lot of physical punishment for very little money.

Randy and Dana fuck each other.

He doesn't sound to confident going in against Brock, asking for health insurance LOL

Now, does that mean shit sandwiches, or cock sandwiches? Because I find it hard to believe that Dana doesn't enjoy a nice cock sandwich once in a while.
