Randy Couture Responds to Seagal Challenge
Ok, nobody who has any remotely coherent knowledge about fighting believes Steven Seagal has a choir boy's chance at the Vatican in a fight against former UFC Heavy, and Light-Heavyweight champion Randy Couture; except maybe Seagal himself and a handful of glue-huffing Aikidoka.
So not because this is News, but because this is hilarious, here's what Randy has to say about the whole thing:
“I’m the one that started the joke as an off-handed comment I made to Jay Glazer — that I’d only come out of retirement if it were to fight Seagal. Obviously now somebody has talked to him about it and it has gotten some legs. I’m not surprised that he wants to do it in private, remote location where nobody could see it happen. Obviously I intended it as a joke. I don’t think it would really happen.”
On the subject of whether Seagal's suggestion it be a true "no holds barred" fight, Couture said: "I don’t think that changes the nature of the fight at all.”
And on the chance of this actually taking place: “Hey, it could happen organically I suppose”.
Here's to hoping. It's apparently been too long since Seagal shat himself.
