Couture: No return to the Octagon, 'unless Steven Seagal signs up'

source: The Underground

Will five-time UFC champion Randy Couture fight no more forever?

Couture is currently promoting The Expendables 2, in which he co stars alongside an action film dream team of Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li, Chuck Norris, Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Jean-Claude Van Damme, and Bruce Willis.

Couture also stars in the recently released straight-to-video movie Hijacked.

On Wednesday Couture appeared on G4TV’s Attack of the Show, and was asked if he would consider coming back to the Octagon.

“No," replied Couture. "I think everything I set out to do, I managed to pull off, and it has been an amazing journey for 15 years."

“Not unless Seagal wants to sign up,” Couture answered with a smile and a laugh.

The Expendables 2 opens on Friday.

Let's not forget his other student is arguably the P4P greatest.

  Seagal is a trainer and has never claimed to be a mixed martial artist.  Know who else have never been mixed martial artists?  Greg Jackson, Trevor Wittman, Lloyd Irvin, Firas, Ken Hahn, Javier Mendes, Skip Kelp, Mike Dolce, Marc Laimon, Cesar Gracie (no his one asskicking doesn't make him a MMArtist) and many many others that help a fighter with a specific skillset. Sounds like someone is jealous of Sensei Seagal.

I would pay a 100$ PPV fee to see Randy beat the hell out of Seagal. The fact Seagal is using MMA to try and make himself relevant again is disgusting. He never was a mixed martial artist. He was an actor. His fights are more closely connected to dancing than an actual fight being that all of his "fights" were planned out to the last detail.

I see Randy throwing a punch and Seagal catching it and rotating 180 degrees so that he's facing away from Randy and has Randy's arm pinned between his own arm and body, right under his arm pit. Then I see Seagal forcing Randy's arm straight with a figure four grip, and pushing hard to hyperextend it. I think Randy would be able to offer resistance for a second or two but then I see Seagal suddenly snapping the arm at the elbow. At this point Seagal releases his grip and lets Randy drop to the floor and wiggle around on his side in agony.Best for Randy to stay retired IMO.

Why do you think he'd be willing to fight him?

  Ok one of our photoshop wizards needs to put Seagal's face on Toney from his fight.

I'm sure Seagal would just spew some crap about his techniques being too deadly for MMA or something.. It would be nice though. Maybe they could set up VD vs. Seagal in another organization or something. The fight that never happend because Seagal backed down.
