Dan Wetzel:


Randy Couture isn’t planning a return to the cage, unless Steven Seagal gets in first

You will be disappointed if you want to see UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture fight again. He is focused on his movie career, and recently told me he is starting to feel more like an actor and less like a professional athlete.

"I still feel like a professional athlete. That's slowly, I think, changing. I'm starting to get recognized for my movies. Hopefully, being considered by the industry as a bona fide actor. That's a transition I'm embracing."

But there just may be one challenge who could bring Couture back to the cage. On G4's "Attack of the Show," he said:

"Not unless (Steven) Seagal wants to sign up," Couture answered with a smile and a laugh.

Though Couture was joking, oh please oh please oh please can this happen? Seagal claims to have taught Anderson Silva and Lyoto Machida some of their best moves. In fact, he claimed the kick Machida used to knock out Couture in his last fight. In a cage with Couture, Seagal would have to back up everything he's said about teaching some of MMA's best fighters.

Plus, it would be one heck of a way to sell a movie.
