Quoteworthy:

"I think at some point, I've got to call enough, enough. I've had an amazing year. My last few fights in honesty were more novelty fights. Not to take anything away from my opponents, but that's the truth of the matter. They didn't really matter in the division, they didn't really put me any closer to a title, and I have to make a decision at some point. So I think I would entertain another novelty-type fight. I could still compete but I don't see myself making a run at the title any time soon."

Five time UFC champion and Hall of Famer, Randy Couture, says the days of him chasing after a world title may be over. "The Natural" never failed to impress the MMA community, winning five world titles in two different weight classes. The 47 year-old warrior realizes that his fighting days are numbered, but would still like to compete in "novelty-type" fights. Do you believe Couture's fighting days are over? Or would you still like to see "The Natural" compete?
