- At last night’s post UFC 102 press conference, it was announced that Randy Couture had signed a new, 6-fight, 28-month contract with the UFC prior to his loss to Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. Couture had the following comments on the new deal…
“I think the opportunity to stay with the organization was my motivation. I think with things being the way they are, this is the place to be. I intend to finish my career here in the UFC.”
Couture also spoke on his performance against Nogueira…
“I didn’t have the outcome that I wanted (against Nogueira), but I still had a good performance, overall. I did a lot of things that I trained to do for this fight. We’ll evaluate that, evaluate the training and see what fight is next and take it one at a time.”
Dana White is of course happy to have Couture locked up…
“It keeps the heavyweight division interesting, and maybe the light heavyweight division, too, depending on what [Couture] decides to do. I don’t care what he wants to do. He can do whatever he wants. He’s proven that he can stay in there and hang with the heavyweights if that’s what he wants to do. And I think he’s a beast at 205 pounds.”
Couture says he wants interesting fights, including light heavyweight matches with Lyoto Machida and Anderson Silva.
“I’m interested in interesting fights. There’s a lot of guys in both divisions that are interesting to fight.”
