    Randy Couture out of retirement

    Quote Originally Posted by Sherdog.com
    Randy Couture (Pictures), the only two-division champion in UFC history, is expected to announce a return to active competition this Thursday, reports the Wrestling Observer.

    Since hanging up his gloves after a second consecutive knockout loss to UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell (Pictures) in Feb. 2006, "The Natural" has repeatedly suggested he would return to the Octagon under the right circumstances. That could mean facing UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia (Pictures), 30, in March, a separate report from MMAweekly indicated Tuesday evening.

    Two weeks ago, Couture told "Beatdown" on the Sherdog Radio Network that should Tito Ortiz (Pictures) defeat Liddell on Dec. 30 he would face the "Huntington Beach Bad Boy" if given the opportunity. Liddell's third-round technical knockout appeared to derail any plans of a Couture comeback.

    The UFC, which is rumored to have heavily lobbied the 43-year-old two-time UFC heavyweight champion to return to the cage, will likely promote Sylvia-Couture for its March card in Columbus, Ohio. Couture (14-8-0) has not fought at heavyweight since succumbing to Ricco Rodriguez (Pictures) in 2002. In his next bout, Rodriguez gave up the heavyweight belt to Sylvia.
    So it appears Couture is going to fight Sylvia.... thoughts?

    Please oh please oh please come back long enough to beat the Maine-iac? *snicker*
    Sorry, that nickname gets me every time. It, itself, is more entertaining than his fights. But, if Couture does return, I hope he can avoid Cro-Cop. I dont wanna see Randy injured, I like the guy.

    He certainly has better wrestling than monson. The question is, can he stop Sylvia?

    I hope he doesn't come back as I know he can beat Sylvia but then he would have to face Cro Cop and I don't want to see Randy get beaten by Mirko

    I find watching Sylvia fight incredibly painful, but I don't think Coture would have much of a chance. Sylvia just has to keep that left out there like he has against everyone else.

    either randy loses against crocop, which is painful, or randy loses against sylvia, which is embarrassing. i know he likes to compete, and i know he doesn't want to fight chuck again, but... why?

    And here I thought this thread was going to be about Randy's participation on Pros vs. Joes.

    I think Randy would beat Sylvia up and down the octagon. Then he just needs to retire on top before cro crop takes his head off with a high kick.

    Oh man, and here I thought "finally, a graceful retirement from MMA."
    I pointed at him [the panhandler], bringing my rear hand up in a subtle approximation of the double Wu Sau guard that is the default hand position in Wing Chun Kung Fu.

    "Step away," I hissed.
