Randy Couture could fight Fedor in Oct. ’08

Current UFC heavyweight champion, Randy Couture was cornering a few of his fighters at yesterday’s HDNet Fights: Reckless Abandon and in the post-event press conference, he was quizzed once again on a possible fight with Emelianenko.

Couture stated he still wants to fight Fedor and that his current UFC contract will expire in July and his broadcasting contract will expire in October, which of course would make October the earliest date he could fight Fedor, outside of the UFC.

Unless the UFC wants to do a co-promotion with M-1 and make the Fedor fight happen, I’m going to have to wait ’til my contract expires.

I have no intention of breaching that contract; that expires in July. My employment contract expires with them in October. So I would assume the soonest you’d see me fight Emelianenko would be in October.

When asked about the upcoming fight between Fedor Emelianenko and Hong Man Choi, Randy said that Choi would have a puncher’s chance, but that he would he would be hoping the Russian would prevail.

I hope it goes successfully for him because I want to be the first one to beat him
