As we all know, the UFC has been putting a spin on the Randy Couture situation as if he is retiring from the sport of mixed martial arts. Couture wants everyone to know the real story:
“It’s not a retirement,” said Couture Friday, who also works as on-air analyst and ambassador for The Fight Network. “It’s a resignation from the UFC organization.”
I think we all knew this was the case, but this truly does make it sound like Randy plans on fighting again. In recent comments, Dana White was asked about the validity of rumors that Couture’s contract was up in nine months. White claimed those rumors to be completely false. It will be interesting to see how Randy’s contract situation plays out because it’s clearly obvious he has his sights set on one opponent: Fedor Emelianenko.
