There was likely a hint of sarcasm in UFC president Dana White’s answer to a question on Twitter Tuesday. White was asked his feelings on Randy Couture’s decision to sign with Viacom and join Bellator MMA.
“I love it,” White said.
White’s been very critical of Bellator and the way they go about signing fighters to contracts as of late. Couture, a former UFC champion and member of the UFC Hall of Fame, is expected to be part of a reality series as a coach later this year.
Nothing has been made official by Couture, Bellator or Viacom, but a conference call is scheduled for next Tuesday to make the formal announcement.
