Randy Couture caused a bit of havoc in the mixed martial arts world when the legend posted a message on his Twitter account that seemed to hint he was hanging up his gloves for good.
Fans who read the message as Couture announcing his retirement from the sport may be jumping the gun.
"It's not an official announcement," Couture's attorney Sam Spira told MMA Fighting. Spira said that the posting was simply the fighter responding to fans and reiterating that he might have fought for the last time.
No decision has been made, and there is still dialogue between Couture and the UFC about his future. The decision at this point is essentially in Couture's hands.
