UFC Hall of Famer, and five time champion, Randy Couture's illustrious career in mixed martial arts is already well in place. Nobody has come close to achieving what "The Natural" has in his tenure in the UFC. Winning titles on two different weight class; two-time light heavyweight champion and a three-time heavyweight champion, Couture's legacy is well documented, and his status as legend is concrete.

So on the heels of a three-fight win streak, and possibly a win or two away from another title shot in the light heavyweight division, you would think his focus would remain primarily on the MMA game, because after all, the guy is 47-years-young.

After appearing in his largest role to date in the blockbuster action movie this year, in Sylvester Stallone's "The Expendables", which featured a bevvy of some of the greatest punch-face stars of this generation, including cameos with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, and of course Stallone, Randy held his own when he was featured as one of the main stars of the film, which to date, has grossed a quarter of a billion dollars, world wide.

So, its natural for Couture to want to pursue his movie career while the iron is hot, even though it may be at the expense of mixed martial arts career, which has seen a second mind after dropping his heavyweight title to Brock Lesnar, then a bout to Antonio Rodrigo Nogueria, before going on a three-fight win with victories over Brandon Vera, Mark Coleman, and boxer-turned mixed martial artist: James Toney, added to his list of accomplishments.

"I think (acting) is certainly what my interest is right now," Couture said on this week's edition of the "MMA:30 Radio Hour," which MMAJunkie.com has picked the beat up on. "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."

While Couture, 47, has three fights remaining on his contract, he's finally coming to terms with his age. After all his accomplishments and accolades, it's easy to see why Couture would consider the longevity of his life, in regard to wanting to pursue acting as much as he can. While no interesting projects have turned his way just yet as far as film goes, Randy seems as equally undecided about his fighting career.

"I just don't know," Couture stated. "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."

So, MMA peeps, if you played match maker, who would you like to see Couture face next in the cage? Or are you on the undecided side; would you rather see "Captain America" possibly retire all together, especially on the high note that he is on? Sound off in the comment section below.
