Randy Couture: "We'll see how Emelianenko deals with him [Tim]"

Randy Couture talks about the recent news that Fedor will be fighting Tim Sylvia and shares his thoughts on his wife's first win.


On Fedor fighting Sylvia...

"I think it’s going to be an interesting fight. Fedor just fought a pretty tall opponent in Hong Man Choi, so obviously he’s been in that mode of dealing with a guy that size, but I think Tim is a little more seasoned fighter than Hong Man has proved to be. But..."

On Kim's performance...

"I thought it was great. It was very exciting and I saw her do a lot of things that we saw her work on in training, which is always good. You want to go out and put yourself in a situation to do what you’re trained to do so I thought she had a good performance and for all of the pressure that she’s been under, to handle it so gracefully and be successful, and I though it was a good night."

On what it's like to corner his guys at a UFC event...

"Yeah, it’s sort of weird. It’s kind of like going to your ex-girlfriend’s house for something. It’s not the most comfortable thing, but it is what it is I’m there for one purpose and one purpose only and that is to take care of my guys."

On the UFC banning Affliction...

"Really, the only people that they hurt with this tactic, thinking they’re going to get to me by abandoning the brand, is the fighters that we sponsored this last year."

He talks more about Kim, Fedor-Sylvia and the UFC in the full interview...

From some of those comments Couture is saying about the UFC it seems he is definitely not coming back but he is still under contract so he cant do anything about it.

You know Randy has got to be pissed about all this...I am too I would much rather see my boy Fedor fight Couture than Sylvia. It would be a MUCH better fight and Fedor would prove a lot more after beating The Natural than big Tim IMO.

... people that make comments like that need to get off of their computer, in their underwear with the Cheetos stain on them, and do something else.

On the Fedor/Tim fight he takes a look at is as a way to measure himself against Fedor through Tim instead of showing how disappointed as f*ck he is. Randy is a positive classy guy, poor bastard. I wonder if he had approached Dana the way Mirko and Tim did if it'd be the same.

Randy is a Class Act!

IF Fefor Beats Tim, The Hype on the Randy vs Fedor will be Priceless

But if Big Tim wins I think it kills the Randy/Fedor hype.

My prediction went to Sh!t...
