    BloodyElbow.com Exclusive: Randy Couture Update

    [​IMG] by Michael Rome on Aug 29, 2008 3:29 PM EDT in News

    I've spoken with a lot of people about Randy Couture in the last day. Things are definitely happening.

    First, I can say with 100% certainty that there are current negotiations for Randy Couture to return in November to main event, and that the current proposed opponent is Brock Lesnar. They can't get Fedor, too many issues to work out on short notice, and he has a US-only non compete with Affliction.

    This will be a new contract, not a return to the old one. It will likely pay him more and give him more benefits, but it will lock him into the UFC for the long term. In exchange for signing it Zuffa would drop all breach of contract charges.

    From there, things get hazy. Randy is now training full time as if he is expecting a fight soon, but he still hasn't signed anything as far as I know. As far as the details of the Lesnar fight, I don't know if it's title or non title.







    44yrs old + long term contract :eek5:...if true

    Except for the fact Lesner doesnt deserve a title shot. What are they going to do about that?

    He deserves it about as much as Mir. The heavyweight division is a free for all, its too shallow to make anything of it.

    One thing I kinda had a love hate thing with Pride was that they just let anybody get in there and fight. It wasnt always the number one contender that got the shot. I think it made their champions seem more invincible. If the UFC wants to let someone fight for the title once in a while that isnt top ranked, so what.

    Wat a douche move, he puts us MMA fans all through that bullshit and hypes up a Fedor fight but now he's like "Oh, I'm back with the UFC lol"

    God damn Randy and god damn Fedor! They should have just made it happen instead of all the crying about money and getting their friends signed (fedor)

    does anyone but me feel that couture is pussying out. maybe seeing how easily he laid a beatdown on big tim made randy think twice about wanting a piece of fedor
