Randy Couture is facing the biggest fight of his career. Will he go to Hollywood or must he continue his trail in UFC? Can Hollywood give him the spotlight better than Las Vegas?

UFC Hall of Fame – – is not yet hanging up his gloves, but admits that he’s in crossroads nowadays. After his cinematic role with the action film luminaries in “The Expendables,” realizes that he has a brighter future in than Las Vegas. As he said in this weeks edition of MMA:30 Radio Hour:

“I think [acting] is certainly what my interest is right now. I’ve had an amazing year, and I think it’s time to start looking at that, for sure. That’s probably what’s going to carry me through for the next 10 or 15 years.”

But of course, Randy Couture’s career has been carried through for 13 years by mixed martial arts. Since his UFC debut in 1997, Couture embarked on six varying championship reigns in two different weight class. He is also distinguished as the oldest man ever to hold a belt after defeating Tim Silva at 43. And now that he is 47, Couture just earned a three-fight winning streak. As for what lies ahead for Couture, that remains to be seen.

“I just don’t know. I’m trying to honestly evaluate that now and see how many wars I’ve got left in me. There’s definitely some wars in the division.”
