Posted on mmauniverse.com:

Couture, who weighs about 230 pounds – “back up to heavyweight,” he says – doesn’t plan to return to the octagon, unless the UFC and rival Pride could put together one bout. “I’d come out of retirement to face Wanderlei Silva,” he says.

That would be an unwise fight for him to take.

I can understand why he would want to fight Wandy. The Natural is a warrior, and he would want to test himself against who he see's as being a fantastic fighter.

I could sit here and list all the ways that Wandy could hurt him, and how hard a fight it would be due to the styles they both prefer but i know that Randy has already thought about them, smiled about them and would love to overcome them.

THATS why i love The Natural.

Just met Randy for the first time, Rich Franklin and Randy Couture are participating in an Iraq Tour with the UFC. Not sure about the statement truth or not. However, when you look him in the eye you cannot help but see his determination and desire. It is a unique look. He is supremely self-confident even in a strange environment like Iraq. I believe with enough time to properly prepare physically and to develop a "game/fight plan” Randy would be very competitive.
