Randy Couture quietly decided to step away from action after his devastating knockout loss to Lyoto Machida at UFC 129 in 2011. Since then, Couture has went on to become a mainstay in the hit movie-series “Expendables” acting along side Sylvester Stallone, Jet Li and UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey.
It looks like “The Natural” is back on the mats throwing his mitts, though! Ryan Couture, Randy’s son, mentioned that his father can be seen in the gym every now and then working on his conditioning. “He’s been getting his conditioning workouts in and watching workouts and hanging out”, Ryan said. When asked whether or not he thought his father was coming back to fight Fedor, he responded, “I’d be pretty surprised if he decided to do that. I don’t doubt that he’s capable of it, but I just don’t know that he has the desire to.”
The following day, Couture was fielding questions for a fan Q&A event and conveniently dodged whether he was fighting Fedor or not. Check out the clip of him throwing heat with UFC on FOX reporter Jay Glazer below!
