    I can smile when its raining.
    Basically he's saying, I wanna fight Fedor as the last fight of my career. He's going to M-1, fighting Fedor and then retiring.

    M-1's first card Fedor + Couture? I'd buy it. It works.

    Sounds like Cuban showed up on his doorstep with a dumptruck of money.

    i dont see the ufc and randy having a good relationship after this... especially if he runs off to fight fedor.
    vera, nog, and arlovski all present huge tests for randy.

    "The Fight Network has just reported that Randy Couture has quit the promotion, vacating his heavyweight title and leaving his job as a color commentator.

    Couture, who works for The Fight Network itself, so there is no way they are going to miss on this story, wrote a letter to Dana White saying not getting a match with Fedor Emelianenko played a prominent part in his decision.

    It is known Couture was one of the top UFC fighters who was unhappy when reading about the huge money guaranteed in the company's offers to Emelianenko, because he felt he and a few others were the fighters who helped build the current popularity and they weren't getting guaranteed income for fights anywhere near that level, particularly since they were bigger drawing cards.

    With the decline of Chuck Liddell, Couture was likely the company's biggest short-term drawing card, and without question, was its most popular fighter.

    We will have more on this story later."

    One part of the story says he has two fights left on his contract, yet it also states that he had a fight by fight contract. Which was it?

    sounds like, he had a clause to release himself whenever he saw fit.
    makes even more sense since he was coming out of retirement.

    This is bad.

    Randy can't beat a roided up Fedor. Actually there are few that can. But god bless his American heart for trying though, he has my unconditional love and support.
