'Inside MMA' will certainly be worth watching tonight then. Randy is a guest. HUGE announcement being lined up...

But why and how is Mark Cuban suing UFC!? Is it on behalf of Randy? If not, then wtf has it got to do with him???

Completely agree, only question is how much money... Cuban's a billionaire, not sure if the UFC has reached billion dollar status yet.

The lawsuit isn't for money...it's for clarification. This puts Zuffa in a precarious position, since I don't think they are really wanting to have his fight contract scrutinized just yet.

Is this going to resolve things any earlier?... Or at all? I'll be on standby and ignore the situation until something actually does happen.

Can't wait to see tonights episode. Randy and his wife Kim are on, and so is Gina Carano, plus they are supposed to be talking more about this Yamma pit thing.

randy is my favorite fighter of all time but he really needs to wise up and get rid of this uptight hollywood agent he has and do what he does best...and thats smash the top heavyweights in the world. mark cuban has absolutely no right to stick his nose in this. what a snob.

I kind of seen this coming. They have gone and done a ton of stuff to make this fight happen and now Randy is in court which means long delays. So the only thing they can do to have any hope of this fight happening is counter sue and thats just what the are doing. I cant say who will win just depends on the judge they get.

I really think they expected the UFC to just let Randy fight after said date. So they gamble on this happening and now they are stuck in hard place and this is the only chance of making this fight still happen.
