Couture responds to Seagal's no holds barred challenge


“I’m the one that started the joke as an off-handed comment I made to Jay Glazer — that I’d only come out of retirement if it were to fight Seagal. Obviously now somebody has talked to him about it and it has gotten some legs,” Couture chuckled to us over the phone today.

“I’m not surprised that he wants to do it in private, remote location where nobody could see it happen. Obviously I intended it as a joke. I don’t think it would really happen.”

Couture is clearly bemused by the actor’s ominous-sounding statements. Asked if he was intimidated by Seagal’s claim that the fight would be truly no holds barred, Couture neatly replied, “I don’t think that changes the nature of the fight at all.”

So it’s safe to say that Couture is not going to take Seagal up on his battle-to-the-death challenge, then, right? “Hey, it could happen organically I suppose,” Couture ended, simply.

Wrist locks do hurt and Randy Couture is probably a little bit harder to wrist lock than an 8th grade boy, I'm guessing

Seagull wants no witnesses so when he shits his pants again it won't be rumored all over.

My eighth grade science teacher Mr Rantamaa used to employ those deadly Aikido wrist locks when he would get exasperated with us slackers.I can tell you they hurt like heck!

It would make the Toney fight look competitive. Single, half guard, elbow, quit.

Brutal wrist locks. If Randy leaves a wrist out there for even a fraction of a second Segal will take it home with him.

Tell the truth. You have a pony tail, have never had a tan, weigh about a buck thirty-nine, and wear dark turtle necks, don't you.Don't ask me how I know this, too, but someday you will take up fencing and fantasize about being a vampire, like in an Ann Rice novel, with a baby momma who weighs about twice as much as you do.
