Randy “The Natural” Couture had one more fight in his the 3-fight contract he signed back in September 2008. During the UFC 102 post-fight press conference, UFC president Dana White assured media and fans that Couture would continue fighting with the UFC for at least next 28 months. The five-time UFC champion has officially renewed his contract, inking a new 6-fight deal with the UFC organization.
There are rumors of a possible move to light heavyweight but nothing has been confirmed just yet. Couture wants to continue being a part of the UFC until he retires, but he plans to take a short break in order to decide what division he’d like to fight in for the rest of his fight contract.
From Dana White:
“(Randy Couture) will be with us for a lot more fights…[In regards to fighting as a heavyweight or a light heavyweight] Whatever he wants to do, I’m in.”
