Couture: [Fedor] most appealing fight

Good interview, with Couture saying he still wants Fedor:

Quote:


Randy "The Natural" Couture took some time to talk to 411mania.com about fighting Fedor, his game plan, and more! Plus, everyone's thrown in their thoughts on Brock Lesnar, but what about the man he beat? Sure, Brock Lesnar defied the odds by becoming the UFC Heavyweight Champion* just over a year after he was signed, but Randy Couture has defied the odds many times, and he'll do it again. All that and more in what Jon Fitch's video game character has called "The Greatest MMA Column."

Even with his extremely busy schedule, Randy Couture, one of the best and most popular fighters ever, answered some questions for 411mania.com. Here it is:


Dan Plunkett: Firstly I'd like to thank you for taking time to do this interview with 411mania.com, at UFC 91, you took part in a fight that may have been the biggest fight in the history of MMA, what does that mean to you?

Randy Couture: I'm honored that people are talking about it that way. I've been fortunate to have been involved in a number of high profile bouts in my career but this one definitely had a different feel to it. The buzz and the energy leading up to the fight was incredible.

DP: In that fight against Brock Lesnar, you looked to have a good game plan of wearing him down for the later rounds, was that your game plan and how do you see that fight playing out if you hadn't been caught?

Randy Couture: The game plan was definitely to go out there, get in Brock's face, make him work, and try to frustrate him. Obviously, we knew that with his physical tools there was a good chance that I was going to have to work my way out from underneath him. I just wanted to keep my hands in his face, keep him from doing damage if he did take me down, and eventually put him on bottom to see how he'd handle the pressure there. Up until that big shot landed, I felt like everything that I trained to do was working. I got out from underneath him, controlled the clinch game, and was getting off good punches of my own. Unfortunately, when you're in there with a guy like Brock who is so big and hits so hard, there's always that possibility that you're going to get rocked.

"Up until that big shot landed, I felt like everything that I trained to do was working."


DP: People have thrown out a lot of names in regards to you're next opponent, including Chuck Liddell, Anderson Silva, the loser of Nogueira/Mir, and I personally would like to see you fight Lyoto Machida, who out of those names would you most like to fight and who do you think is the most likely opponent for you next?

Randy Couture: I haven't really thought too far ahead about that. Right now, I'm just taking some time to regroup and weigh out my options. I definitely think that those are all interesting matchups that would pose unique challenges, but it's too soon to say who I'll likely fight next.

DP: This whole spectacle with yourself and the UFC was started by your interest in fighting Fedor Emelianenko, after your loss are you still looking to fight Fedor?

Randy Couture: That's absolutely still the most appealing fight out there in my mind. Unfortunately, with the issues between Fedor's management and the UFC, it doesn't look like there is much chance of that fight happening any time soon.

i think randy needs the fedor fight...it just needs to happen...and since couture lost, it actually makes this fight more probable, cuz dana would never put fedor in their against a champion to delegitimize the belt...

sign fedor to a one fight deal and let him fight randy in the UFC...

I thought this was going to be the only bright spot about Brock winning and that was we wouldn't have to hear anymore about Couture/Fedor, I still want to see the fight but it really got annoying always having to hear about it.

Sucks.....

I was impressed with Couture's ability to get it back to the feet a couple times, but, I'm more interested in a Brock vs. Fedor fight first. Fedor hits harder and could drop Lesnar's big ass, on the ground Lesnar gets subbed.

Def. but i don't think i would want to see that at this moment because when fedor were to win people would just say brock is inexperienced so maybe in the future .

This fight will never happen. That is my opinion/prediction, and I'm sticking to it.

Dana is too much of a stubborn prick, and I don't see Captain America's body holding up for too much longer. I could be wrong about the Latter, and I hope so, but I doubt it.

Which is why the UFC will never let it happen....yet. Aaronyman is right, with Randy losing in the 2nd to Brock, it frees him to to make the fight while still retaining plausible denaiability that Fedor is better than the current champ.

fedor needs to stop fuking around with affliction and sambo tournaments and fight in the UFC.I'll probably be negged for this, but I dont think fedor can do nearly as well in the Ufc as he did in pride
