    When I first read about this I was pissed at the UFC for not giving him more money but he did sign a contract.

    He retired because he wanted to fight Fedor, but Fedor signed with Russian M-1.

    He didn't retire. He just resigned from his UFC contract.

    I've been reading up a little more on this and you're both right.

    "Couture had cited the UFC's inability to sign the former Pride star as one of his reasons for leaving the organization, saying that the Fedor fight was the only challenge remaining."

    "Couture made a point of saying he was resigning from the UFC rather than leaving the sport altogether."

    Both of those quotes came from this article:
