Randy Couture: ‘Fedor’s going to have to step up’

“At some point Fedor’s going to have to step up and be willing to fight top level guys again. I don’t know what’s going on with him or why he’s not willing to do that and certainly (Fabricio) Werdum is one of those guys he’s going to have to face to be considered a top fighter. To be pound-for-pound best fighter in the world he’s going to have to start facing tougher opponents. Hopefully we’ll see [the Werdum] fight happen.”

Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Randy Couture comments on the recent news that “The Last Emperor” was not going to make a planned Strikeforce appearance in April against Fabricio Werdum and may not be able to make the May date either. (via MMAPrime.tv)
