Randy Couture is one of the most successful MMA fighters of all time, holding both heavyweight and light-heavyweight UFC belts. Captain America has been retired for several years, but still looks like he could jump in the octagon and fight on a moments notice.
Recently, Randy was asked who he thinks would win in a match-up between Floyd “Money” Mayweather and Conor McGregor. Couture said Conor would get destroyed in a boxing match with Floyd but added things would be different in a mixed martial arts bout.
Randy, just before Conor became the most popular fighter in the world, was trying to make a mega-fight with Fedor outside of the UFC. The UFC would not let Randy make the fight and both parties ended up in a long court battle. Couture actually spent $500,000 of his own money in legal fees trying to break free from his UFC contract. That begs the question, could Randy be just a little jealous of Conor calling his own shots and banking millions?
If the Mayweather fight happens, Conor will make several times in 1 hour what Randy Couture made in his entire fight career. Randy expected a million dollar plus payday with Fedor Emelianenko but that never happened. Now at 53 and with both Randy and Fedor retired, we will never see this dream match-up become reality. Don’t feel too bad for randy though, he’s dating one of the hottest blonds, Mindy Robinson and still has several successful business ventures going.
