They acted like they were doing me a favor by giving me the four events on FOX a year as a commentator. In my opinion and estimation, (that's) not a terribly significant role in the organization, and the company of Zuffa. So I tried like hell to get them to keep me with the company in some significant way and they had nothing for me.
I made them aware that this offer had come onto the table, that the TV thing was heating up for me, that there were significant offers being pushed to me, but I had to sign a non-disclosure agreement to even hear those pitches and could not tell them specifically what was going on or who was offering what.
So, you know, in my professional estimation, they had an opportunity to keep me and use me. They chose not to, and a week later, after this whole thing leaks, they give a job to Matt Hughes in a significant fashion. Frankly that was a big f--k you' to me from Dana. And that's exactly what he intended to do."

Again, I think Matt has been doing this job for awhile now and it was just recently announced. Maybe that was a parting shot by Dana. Oh well, Randy can go have fun with Bjork.
