Randy Couture: 'If the UFC offered me Shogun or Machida, I’d take the fight. Otherwise, I think I’m done.'

Quoteworthy:

"I think I’m done. The time is right. I’d fight Machida or Shogun but outside of that, I wanna focus on other things in my life. If [the UFC] offered me Shogun or Machida, I’d take the fight. Otherwise, I think I’m done. [I’m] gonna focus on acting and the businesses."

After UFC hall-of-famer Randy Couture blew up the MMA boards with last night's (Dec. 14) comments about hanging up the gloves (again), "The Natural" indicates there are at least two possible match-ups that could keep him active inside the Octagon. One would be against current light heavyweight champion Mauricio Rua and the other would be against the man "Shogun" took the title from, dangerous Brazilian striker Lyoto Machida. Any fans out there interested in either of those fantasy bouts? Or would you rather see "Captain America" ride off into the sunset on the memory of him choking out bloated boxing blowhard James Toney?
