Steve Cofield did this lengthy interview with Randy Couture. One of the more interesting parts of it is when Cofield asks Randy about his relationship with Affliction and its co-founder Todd Beard. Here’s what he said:

Things will come out the way they come out, but I don’t intend to do anymore business with Todd or Affliction in any way. Whether or not they still manufacture the [Xtreme Couture] line down the road or not is still yet to be seen. But, you know, guys with drinking problems is what it boils down to. I’ve seen at several different professional meetings, business manager meetings, where he’s ordering shots and just out of control, and that’s not something I really want to be associated with.

Any small amount of optimism I might have had left for Affliction is officially gone.

In part two (after the jump) Randy talks about Brock Lesnar blowing up over the steroid questions and how he intends to use Brock’s short fuse against him.
