UFC Randy Couture discusses retirement

Fighters in whatever sports comes to retirement, so with Mr. Couture. As what the said UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture is old enough to be some peoples’ father, and in a few cases their grand pappy. Yeah, this man is 47 years old but still doing everything he can to win, and you can see that in his last few fights.

Regardless, the Fountain of Youth will inevitably run dry and “The Natural” will be forced to hang up his iconic MMA gloves once and for all. Because of that, Couture has already started to make the transition over to a less physically demanding Hollywood career.

“I think [acting] is certainly what my interest is right now,” Couture told MMA:30 Radio Hour. “I’ve had an amazing year, and I think it’s time to start looking at that, for sure. That’s probably what’s going to carry me through for the next 10 or 15 years.”

“Captain America” was seen last month cruising to a 1stRound submission victory over boxing legend James Toney at UFC 118. To have that victory stand as his final Octagon appearance wouldn’t be all that bad, although it isn’t nearly as nice as seeing him hoist up another championship belt.
