Randy Fedor January fap fap fap fap fap

Things are moving faster than you’d expect with this whole Randy Couture situation. Just a few days ago we were prepping for another huge order of Free Randy t-shirts. Now Couture is inches away from fighting Brock Lesnar in November … and possibly Fedor Emelianenko on January 31st:

The long-rumored heavyweight superfight between UFC champion Randy Couture (16-8 MMA, 8-5 UFC) and WAMMA champion Fedor Emelianenko (28-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) is currently being discussed for the UFC’s annual Super Bowl weekend show in Las Vegas.

Sources inside Couture’s Xtreme Couture camp today informed ( of the ongoing negotiations between the UFC and both fighters.

This goes against another report that says Fedor has a North American non-compete agreement with Affliction, but truth be told I don’t think there’s an organization out there that Fedor’s management wouldn’t sell up the river if the price was right. Also keep in mind that Randy really has a hard on for fighting Fedor … if his returning to the UFC is long term as is being rumored, then the logical assumption is that a Fedor fight would be part of the deal. All this points to Randy and Fedor being a very real possibility!

Personally, I’m happy as a pig in shit that we’re going to get to see Couture fighting on a regular schedule again. That’s all I really want: consistant fights and decent matchups. Do I think Randy vs Brock is the most meaningful matchup out there? Not really, but I don’t mind so much since I know Randy will be fighting again a few months later (Lesnar-induced injuries nonwithstanding). Against Fedor is a definite bonus, but I never felt that fight was worth all the trouble (and t-shirts) it caused.
