Former UFC heavyweight and 205-pound champion Randy Couture has had a busy schedule of late. In addition to promoting his upcoming movie (The Expendables), Couture has been training for an important showdown with boxing legend James Toney at UFC 118.
Even at 47 years of age, the competitive juices are still flowing through his superhuman veins. MMA’s “Captain America” recently discussed the possibility of meeting 185-pound king Anderson Silva in a light heavyweight tango.
“I’m definitely interested at fighting at 205. I think Anderson [Silva] would be a great fight. I’m not sure what his perspective has been the last couple of times, though,” Couture told SB Nation.
“I think he’s a fantastic fighter, and if that’s someone they want me to compete against I’d be all over that.”
Although it would be an intriguing matcup to watch, it’s highly unlikely something like this would be arranged given the long-list of foes anxious to get at Silva.
