Randy Couture has the kind of legacy in MMA that many can only dream about. He is a multi-time champion in several weight classes, has transitioned into blockbuster movies, and is in the hall of fame.

However, many have felt that there is one fight that eluded Couture throughout his career: a match with Fedor Emelianenko.

During a recent interview with The Score TV’s Arda Ocal, Couture discussed never fighting Emelianenko.

Things work out the way they are supposed to work out. I got so many examples of that in my life. It just never worked out, and you know, it is what it is. I don’t have any regrets. I wish then, when we were both kind of at our peaks, if it would have happened, it would have been something special; the cards didn’t just come out that way.

Couture has retired from active fighting following a loss to Lyoto Machida. Fedor, however, remains active in the sport. For several years, had Couture-Fedor been made, it could have been the biggest fight in MMA history.
