Yesterday afternoon while promoting his upcoming film project Expendables 2 on G4TV program Attack of the Show, former two division UFC champion Randy Couture took a pot shot at Steven Seagal, joking that the actor turned Blackhouse entourage member would be the one fighter Couture would come out of retirement for.
“I think everything I set out to do, I managed to pull off and it has been an amazing journey for 15 years,” said Couture when asked what could coax him out of retirement. “Not unless Seagal wants to sign up.”
Since Couture moved into the realm of action movies post-retirement, The Expendables has proven to be his flagship franchise. Now that Randy’s newest claim to fame has him along side aging action stars from the 80’s, there are more points of comparison between Couture and Seagal than when he was a UFC champion and Seagal an Anderson Silva hanger-on.
It may be worth noting that a bout between Couture and Seagal would not be the first time the two have crossed swords.
