Bas Rutten vs. Kevin Randleman
Bas Rutten and Kevin Randleman infamously fought to a controversial decision at UFC 20, with ‘El Guapo’ emerging victorious by split decision, and so when they met backstage in the PRIDE organization for an interview they decided to have a little fun at the audience’s expense.
During the interview Randleman brought up the subject of their past encounter.
“You know I won that fight, right?” Randlemann told Rutten, who by that stage was a color commentator for PRIDE.
“It was very close, I give you that, but I was the winner,” a clearly annoyed Rutten responded. “So lets go, just be professional…and you know what, I just don’t like to be touched. Could you just don’t touch me, ok? A woman it would be ok, because I’m ‘El Guapo,’ but a man – no, thank you very much.”
Rutten then tried to change the subject, but Randleman grabbed him by the arm for a second time and tried to interrupt, which sent Rutten flying into a rage, shouting, “I told you not to touch me, ok!” and then attacking his rival.
The camera then faded with the two still fighting each other, only for the camera to come back on with the two fighters laughing at having pranked the audience watching on TV.
