Randy Couture Doesn’t Want To Be The Next Chuck Liddell

“I felt horrible for Chuck. Everybody was chatting about him retiring. He’s been such an amazing champion and he had such an aura around him. To have him drop the last couple in the way he did, it just sucked. The way the fans talked about him, it was very disappointing. I felt bad for him… So why not take control and do it on my terms? When I want to do it and not because I’ve been knocked out the last three times and nobody wants to see me get beat up again? I never want to have that conversation with anybody.”

—Randy Couture explaining to ESPN why he wants to retire on his own terms

Can’t argue with that. No one wants to be the guy everyone feels sorry for… not in this business.
