Randy Couture appears to retire via TwitterPosted on December 14, 2010, 10:22 PM by Joey Santosus
MMA pioneer and UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture appears to have come to a final decision regarding his future in the sport. After thirteen illustrious years spent in the octagon, Couture announced his plans to retire Tuesday night via Twitter.
The "Natural" goes out on a high note, ending his career on a three-fight win streak, with victories over Brandon Vera, Mark Coleman, and most recently Heavyweight boxer James Toney. Following a successful role in the Sylvester Stallone action flick "The Expendables," Couture has expressed interest in show biz, and is expected to pursue additional offers over the next year.
It really looks like Randy Couture retired from the sport, unless the UFC will offer him a fight against Lyoto Machida or Shogun Rua. This is what Captain America said to Sherdog.com's Loretta Hunt:
"I think I'm done. The time is right," said Couture via text. "I'd fight Machida or Shogun but outside of that, I wanna focus on other things in my life."
