Randy Couture is a former UFC champion who is now trying his hand acting in movies and on television shows.

Randy joined Ed and Steve to talk about the UFC, Conor McGregor’s retirement, and his upcoming guest appearance on Hawaii Five-O.

Randy started out by talking about his appearance on Hawaii Five-O saying “I play a serial arsonist…there is a prison break and I escape.” As for whether it’s easier to be an athlete or an actor Randy said “they’re both challenging in their own way, as an athlete my whole life I’ve learned to box up my emotions…now they want me to let all that out while playing these characters, it’s a challenge but its been fun both are a grind.”

When asked if the UFC is in danger of over-saturating the market Randy said “I think the market is a little bit saturated, when I was competing there were 6 to 12 big fights a year, and now there is a big fight every month almost every week seemingly.” As for the Conor McGregor retirement/contract dispute Randy said “as a fighter you have a short window to make as much money as you can, and I think that is what he’s doing trying to squeeze as much money out of them as he can…goof for him, I hope it works out for him.”
