Randy Couture: ‘If The UFC Signs Fedor, Then I’m Out’

July 21, 2015 12:13 pm by BJPENN.COM News


Former two-division UFC champion Randy Couture has been answering questions lately, ever since Fedor Emelianenko announced he would be returning to MMA.

The two never fought, but came close and now fans are wondering if ‘The Natural’ would consider coming back for the fight.

Here’s what he said to MMAFighting:

“You never say never — you never say ‘no, I’m not going to do that.’ But I’m very, very happy being retired doing all the other stuff I’m doing. If the stars align and the right situation came up… you know, Fedor’s not a cheap ticket. So I don’t know who’s going to pay that price right now. Especially considering how things ended for him, so I’m not sure it will be Viacom or Bellator, which seems like the most logical place. I know there’s new organizations coming out in Japan in the new year, and he’s built a huge name there. Maybe they have the pockets for it. I know the UFC would like to get it done, and more than likely I’m out if that’s the case.”
