Randy Couture Says He Was Approached For Fedor Fight

April 4, 2016 | Posted by Larry Csonka

– Randy Couture appeared on Inside MMA Friday night, and spoke about being approached to fight Fedor Emelianenko. Here is what he had to say…

“I was approached when Fedor [Emelianenko] threw his hat back into the ring after a four, five year layoff. I was the first one they came to. It’s certainly something you have to consider and take seriously, but it’s not really about money. I think one of the more rational decisions I’ve probably made in my life was the decision to step down and hang them up.”

Couture is 52, and his last fight was in April of 2011, where he lost to Lyoto Machida.
