Randy Couture: The fight against Lyoto Machida could be my lastPosted on March 30, 2011, 07:07 AM by Anton Gurevich
“There’s a big chance this is my last fight. I’m not going to be making any official announcements, I don’t think anybody would buy it – I already did that once! But I’m in terrific shape, I’m feeling confident about Lyoto and dialling into the attack and how we’re going to get our hands on him. There’s a lot of other things calling me now, and there’s a chance this is the last one.
I’ve got several other movies lined up, The Expendables 2 is coming up in September, and I’ve got my other businesses like the clothing company and the extension of the gym. Frankly, I’m tired of grinding it out, it’s time to enjoy life.” - ESPN.co.uk

So what do you think, LowKick'ers? Should Randy Couture hang 'em up after the fight against "The Dragon? Or he still has something to offer inside the Octagon. As always, use your keyboard.
