48-year old Randy Couture has not fought in a year, but he remains hyper active.
“I just finished filming Expendables 2,” said Couture in an interview with MMAFrenzy. “Before that I filmed a movie called Hijacked in which I had the lead in, they will both be out this summer. I’m heading to LA for a meeting about a movie and I will be commentating for the UFC on Fox once again in New Jersey. We just had our third annual Xtreme Couture GI Foundation poker tournament with all the proceeds going to wounded soldier and their families. We have our third annual Ride For Our Troops on May 19. It’s always fun to give back and help those families who need help. Those guys have sacrificed their limbs and it’s something I have enjoyed building from the ground up.”
“Whenever I’m in Vegas I’m at the gym every single day. I don’t really get the itch to fight as I feel like I made the right decision. In today’s society it’s very rare when an athlete gets to go out on his own terms. I felt like I had the privilege to do that and I didn’t have anyone telling me I couldn’t fight anymore. I haven’t really looked back or second guessed myself. I’ve been getting more acting jobs and keeping real busy. I’m really excited about commentating and I’ve developed a passion for acting.”
“There is such fine line with all of the anti-aging stuff that’s out there now. TRT is generally something a guy does in their 40’s and 50’s when their natural production of testosterone drops off. There are other natural ways to boost your own body’s production without replacing it and it’s safer as well, but it still should be under the care of a physician. It’s a very fine and a very personal thing and there is no easy answer. An athlete is using his body to earn a living and entertain the fans, they want to get the most out of themselves, but sometimes they go too far with it.”
