Great interview here as Randy Couture was interviewed today by Jim Rome on his radio show. Talking about his upcoming fight with Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Gina Carrano, Xtreme Couture, training & more!
Randy Couture talks about sharpening his ground tools as he goes up against Nogueira’s BJJ. It’s inevitable the fight will get to the ground, but Couture doesn’t don’t that the fight will go the distance. He credits Nogueira’s durability and ability to go the distance so Couture will know what it takes to win the fight.
Quick snippet from the interview:
On Brock Lesnar-
Jim Rome: Do you have Brock Lesnar in the back of your mind?
Randy Couture: Uh, not in the back of my mind i mean there’s some interesting fights and people are asking me about going to 205 you know obviously Brocks walking around with the title and he kind of took that from me and I felt like I was doing all the right things in that fight to get the win and got caught with one, so that’s certainly one I’d like to try again, but uh, like you said, there’s still a lot of interesting fights in both the light heavyweight and heavyweight so we’ll see, we’ll see what happens.
