Am I the only one? ( Randy/Fedor)

Am I the only one that thinks Randy would get completely worked over by Fedor if they ever happen to fight? Every time a topic about this fight comes up, it's usually the consensus that Couture poses a significant threat. But the way I see it Fedor is just miles ahead of him. I believe he would overwhelm him with strikes until he gets the sub.

Share your thoughts/predictions.

Fedor has crushed just about everyone he has faced. Randy would be another notch on his belt

Eh. if a guy like Crocop could take Fedor to decision, I think Randy has a decent chance as well. It's not like Crocop's high kicks are what allowed him to go to decision. Hell, if Coleman could survive to round 2 I am 100% sure Randy could survive at least that long, Randy is better at everything than Coleman.

However, I think Randy would lose. Just not in as devastating a fashion as you predict.

I've been saying this for a while now, Fedor is a horrible match-up for Couture. Fedor's great in the clinch, great on the ground, has better stand-up and is a great gameplanner himself.

Damn near everyone has been saying that for a while now, they just don't have as sexy an avatar as you. I'm with Hex, I think Randy will make it an interesting fight. The blind Couture fan in me wants to pick him but I just can't see how he wins.

We got in quite the debate last night but I think Couture's skills are really overrated. He's impressive for being his age but that doesn't make him a great fighter. Fedor would beat him decisively.

Let me put it to you this way! This is not the first thread to address this issue. I'm sure if do a search you find countless posts on how Fedor will kick Randy's ass. Even on Sherdog you find threads about how Randy doesn't stand a chance, how Hong Man Choi could beat Randy, Randy doesn't deserve to fight Fedor (like that was ever a prerequisite), how it took Randy, 5 rounds to beat Tim while it took Fedor 36 seconds, etc. So no, you are not the only one!

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

Off topic, are you guys rotating the mod positions or what?

Nope we are just bringing in some new mods and doing some different things because the forum is expanding.

Check out all of the new things we've added:

Nonpaid member FFL
Daily Top News and Rumors
VIP Championship Pick Em League
MMAF All Access Interviews
Cleaned up the fighter sections and added/updated fighter profiles

All of those things need to be handled by mods and there wasn't enough to do it all so new ones had to be added.

Also I'm moving this to the general mma section because it really isn't UFC related.
