Randy Couture: 'I would compete against Fedor at Metamoris'

Cagewriter

Randy Couture once walked away from the UFC and a world championship in order to try and get a fight with fellow all-time great heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko. The bout never happened, unfortunately, and now both men are retired from MMA competition.

However, Couture said in a recent interview with Submission Radio, that he's still open to competing against "The Last Emperor." Asked if he'd consider a submission wrestling match against Fedor at Metamoris, Couture replied in the affirmative.

"That would be interesting and certainly given the time to prepare and get back up into good, solid grappling and wrestling shape, that would be a lot of fun," he said.

Couture's former teammate Chael Sonnen recently competed at Metamoris 4 against submission wrestling world champion Andrew Galvao. UFC heavyweight Josh Barnett also competed against former UFC middleweight Dean Lister at the same event.

Couture went on to say that, if Fedor is game and in shape, he can be as well. "I'm not sure how active Fedor is at this stage, you know him being retired as well," he said.

"But I'm certainly no opposed to an idea like that."

Would you pay to watch Couture vs. Emelianenko, even if no strikes could be thrown? Let us know in the comments section!
