"I am not retired. I am waiting for my UFC contract to expire. I will fight Fedor Emelianenko."

Randy Couture -- who recently resigned from his post as UFC heavyweight champion -- reiterates that he has not retired as a mixed martial arts fighter at the HDNet Fights show in Dallas, Texas, last night. "The Natural" indicated that his contractual obligations with the UFC expire in October 2008. Something tells me it's not going to be that easy unless the UFC is somehow involved. Time will tell. In addition, former heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski indicated at the event that he is content to let his contract expire (he has one fight remaining on his current deal) in April 2008 and fight outside the Octagon.

UPDATE: The management team that represents Arlovski refutes the above report right here. In fact, "The Pitbull" is aiming to return to action in March under the UFC banner. We'll see.
