There’s a pretty good interview with Randy Couture that’s now available at CBS Sportsline. Couture broaches a number of topics, including a potential showdown with Pride heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko:
Q: We talked earlier about Mirko Cro Cop. He obviously came over from Pride, and there’s another top fighter from Pride who is their heavyweight champion — Fedor Emelianenko. One of the ultimate dream matches at this point would have to be yourself vs. Emelianenko. Do you foresee Emelianenko coming over to the UFC?
RC: I certainly hope so. He’s the top fighter in the world right now and certainly with good reason. He’s amazing to watch. I love to watch him fight. He’s exciting. He’s very stoic when he steps into the ring. He’s got a great demeanor. He’s technically a very, very good fighter. Those are the kind of guys I want to fight.
Q: Looking down the line a bit — how do you think a fight with Emelianenko might go?
RC: That might be a little too far down the line right now to talk about. I’m trying to keep focused on Gonzaga. I’m not going to hold my breath on Fedor, but if it ever happens, that would be great.
