Former UFC heavyweight champion Randy Couture insists he does not want to get near reigning champ Junior Dos Santos after seeing him obliterate Frank Mir at UFC 146.

Couture, who won UFC gold at heavyweight and light-heavyweight, produced his most famous moment of an astonishing career when he came out of retirement to beat champion Tim Sylvia back at UFC 68.

Now 48 years of age, 'The Natural' insists there is no chance of him being tempted to try and repeat the feat against Dos Santos, who is currently dominating everybody who challenges him.

"No, he's really on fire," Couture told MMA Weigh-in courtesy of Fighters Only. "I thought Mir would have more in that fight - I actually picked Mir to win. But Dos Santos showed he's the real deal.

"He's the total package, amazingly quick hands, very sharp with his combinations, I've no illusions - I don't want any of that!"

I would just rather hear his thoughts and insight rather than if he would come outta retirement to face these guys. He knows like we do that he is a little long in the tooth

Once more high-profile and successful champions with reputable public personas step away from the sport, the media will have the same questions for them. Couture's a studious MMA legend with deep connections across the sport, so I do not expect him to ever go away.

Randy is a smart man. When he fought in the HW division, no one had fast hands like Junior or lateral movements like Junior. Now, if you ask him to entertain the thought of - say.... Overeem. He might. I can see Randy beating Overeem via Greco Roman style.

I can see Randy dying to Overeem via homicidal matchmaking.
