Randy Couture Doesn't See Another Title Run In His Future

0

Despite rumors that Randy Couture may take one more stab at trying to secure another UFC Championship, it turns out the former Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight Champion doesn't expect to fight for a title anytime in the future, an indication that his career inside the UFC's Octagon may be beginning to wind down:

“I think that realistically the end of me making runs at the title was a while ago. I've had a great year. I've had some great fights. Not too many of them really put me in line to be a number one contender or make a run at the title. To be honest, I just don't see myself doing that at this stage in my career.

“I've had my battles. I've had my wars. I think there are a lot of guys out there who are hungry and out there and ready for those kinds of wars. I'm kind of in transition and still enjoying competing at a high level, but I think I'm going to definitely focus on making some more movies and heading in that direction.

“I think some of it boils down to what I really want to do,” Couture said. “I'm trying to make smart decisions. I have all this other stuff going on, and timing is everything. The timing seems right for me to look at those things and to be rational and to really look down the road.”
