Couture Rules Out Comeback 'Unless Seagal Wants To Sign Up' | MMA News

By Jamie McAllister
Former UFC Heavyweight and Light-Heavyweight Champion Randy Couture comments in an interview with GVTV’s Attack Of The Show.

Couture retired following his UFC 129 loss to Light-Heavyweight contender Lyoto Machida, since then he has been working on his acting career and this week the sequel to The Expendables is set to be released.

In his career Couture has achieved great success winning the UFC Heavyweight Title on three occasions and the Light-Heavyweight belt twice. When asked about a potential comeback he was quick to rule it out as he achieved everything he set out to do.

“No, I think everything I set out to do, I managed to pull off, and it has been an amazing journey for 15 years,”

However the former champion did admit one fight that could potentially tempt him back to the octagon.

“Not unless (Steven) Seagal wants to sign up,” Couture answered with a smile and a laugh.

  6. Gaylord Focker says:

    Stebitch Seagul would kiss his own ass after Captain America woop his sore mouth.

  7. RJ KANEAO says:

  9. johnboy says:

    randy would whip that bum anyday!!!!!!!!!!!! segals all talk!!!!! an a women beater!!!!!!

  10. stephen riddle says:

    Steven from his prime might have had a chance i dont think aikido has a ground plan though.

    • B-rad says:

      A 30 year old Randy would SPANK Segal at 30 100 out of 100 times.. Aikido is a soft martial art, which means theres next to nothing for strikes, striking defense, any of that. they have the Aikido way of doing something, but has no place in an MMA fight.. Randy by whatever he wants, whenver he wants

      • cinghoa says:

        You’re right, Aikido is not a grappling or striking art, this may explain why Seagal has incorporated and trained in various arts throughout his life. I’m no fan of him as a person, but his skill deserves much respect. If both men were at their prime, I don’t see Couture taking him, being that Seagal is now at least 50lbs overweight and 60 years old, of course he would get handled, if Couture were able to get his hands on him. Watch some of the videos of him, not movie clips, and you might understand.

        • Ninja says:

          Aikido is a non-functional art. That’s why no aikido master ever made it to UFC, or any major MMA fight. They choregraph their techniques, never alive against a real resisting opponent which is what MMA is about.

        • Jujitsu Player says:

          Ninja – 100% accurate statement. I went a couple of times and the instructor was like attack me. so I did and he stopped me half way through and said no attack me with your other hand. 100% true. It’s bullshit unless you want to put someone in a thumb or wrist lock…..try wrist locking me when I’ve got full mount and I’m raining elbows into your face mutha fucker

  11. Steven “Sensei” Segal vs Randy “The Natural” Couture for the UFC GOLD.

  12. B-rad says:

    I would love to see this, it would be the worse 15 minites of Segals life,, if it lasted that long

  13. Zack says:

    Seagul would crane kick him back into retirement.

  14. punchkick says:

    sounds like the plot for the expendables 3

  15. 808 says:

    Hey guys, Sensei Seagal has been revolutionary to the fighting game believe it or not. Like the time when he told Helio to try fighting off his back, breakthrough for the evolution of mixed martial arts.

    • Clueless says:

      This is a joke…. Right?

    • amber trichome says:

      you’ve got to be joking.
      first of all, don’t call him teacher, unless you study under him.
      secondly, where did you come up with that bs, the internet? don’t believe everything you read.
      That was an obvious joke from nates website. Just like how Seagal ‘taught’ anderson and lyoto how to do a front kick. he may have had some pointers, but Lyotos father taught him everything he knows.

      helio gracie and his brother carlos gracie directly evolved traditional Jiu-Jitsu into Gracie Jiu-Jitsu (aka bjj). Don’t ever attempt to cheapen it with stupid comments you find on the web.

    • Kay Oss says:

      You’re right, we totally have Seagal to thank for BJJ… it’s aaaall so clear to me now…

      I don’t hate Seagal really, he’s hyping himself, his own thing and any projects he works on. That’s fair enough really, he’s got to earn a living. But it does annoy me when he talks sh*t on actual fighters… money where your mouth is please or go home.

      I’d LOVE to see him fight Couture… if we wanted to go with someone his own age even Dan Severn, that would be equally entertaining frankly.

      He might be a nice guy in reality, Anderson and Lyoto seem to think so, but the ego and the talking rubbish about fighters who are actually in there slogging with one another is highly irritating as an observer.

  16. Justen says:

    I would love to see Randy beat him up. That would be hilarious!

  17. ET71 says:

    Actually its pretty simple . Randy Would EAT seagal in a mma battle BUT
    Seagal Would kill couture in less than 2min in a martials fight with
    no rule.. MMA is a SPORT where you punch in the face , real martial arts show
    you how to punch in the throat to kill …

  18. What says:

    Randy couture would be a boring and quick fight. I’d rather see Jose Canseco and Steven Seagal instead haha

  19. ganjaneer says:

    This akido shit is suppose to be about little asian people defending themselves in the streets, try to drop someone w joint manipulation and run your ass away to safety. Has no use in a ring or cage, however with that being said, id love to see seagull fight tank abbott. Tanks a bar bully so let’s see you get in a cage with him, grab his wrist and throw him around for 15 min like he does in the staged demos against 80lb asian dudes…haha, or tank open hand slaps him and all you hear after that is rape like screams emulating from various parts of seagulls body till the ref stops the fight via uncontrollable crying and pooping in the ring. That would be the biggest fight in ufc history, tank vs seagull, sign it up dana, I know tanks down, he would sign for a case of beer and a couple cheap vegas hookers (I mean escorts). Id pay double ppv rate to see that, seriously.

  20. Winwin says:

    Seagal trained with the Machado brothers. Check out Under Siege 2 where he does some guard wirk and a spinning armlock. If he was in shape he probably could do some damage.

  21. UFC FAN says:

    Couture would beat the living crap out of him. If the fight was now, 5 years ago, 10 years ago doesn’t matter. You don’t get to be a hall of famer for nothing. What has Seagal ever done that would put any doubt into anyones mind about this. Randy was more than once in more than one weight category the best fighter in the world in MMA which includes Aikido, not a lot of it because it’s not that affective. Think about it. Couture you are a legend!!

  22. kimo kai says:

    do not under estimate aikido real aikido specialize in breaking bones randy wont stand a chance if its a no rule fight seagal can kill him MMA rule is not real fighting its a sport if its a street fight randy is in for a real pain remember to respect all martial arts you never know what kind of pain you gonna get :)

  23. Mike b says:

    randy would use his dirty boxing against the cage,slam him then pound the living shit out of that guy…Lol

  24. Dick Diaz says:

    this would sell so many PPV’s lmaooo

  25. jmannski says:

    randy would pancake segals pansy ass

  26. A.James says:

    I think what Couture said was totally in jest and not to be taken seriously. Of course he’d stomp seagal. Seagal is a martial artist not a fighter.
