The following is an excerpt from a Randy Couture press conference recap over at FiveOuncesOfPain.com:

Couture also said that media reports claiming he was due to receive several million dollars per fight under his current contract were flatly untrue. He later said that he came out of retirement to fight for the UFC heavyweight title after turning down a $3 million dollar offer from the Bodog organization for a match with Fedor Emelianenko.

“That’s more money than I’ve ever been offered to fight,” Couture said of the Bodog offer.
