Couture won't rule himself out for UFC 99

The next fight is set for Randy Couture but it's not in a cage. He'll be battling a Brazilian jungle during the filming of the Sly Stallone movie The Expendables starting in March all the way through early May. If that's the case, why won't he say he's not fighting at UFC 99 in Germany? His movie schedule should keep him away from the gym until mid-May. The Germany card is on June 13 meaning there's simply not enough time to get in a full training camp for a possible fight against Cro Cop. Makes sense, right? Yet Couture was tight-lipped with Arianny Celeste at the Cage Fashion show on Wednesday night in Las Vegas.

Word has it that there could also be another movie project on the way and it may push UFC 100 in early July out of the mix for "The Natural". Couture says he also wants to see what happens with the May battle between Brock Lesnar and Frank Mir. Lesnar and Fedor Emelianenko are his top two targets.
