markdahl has a little shameless behaviour in the past
He didn't look so much nervous as he looked confused. I really didn't expect Randy to come with the classic push against the fence and dirty boxing plan like he did. Its pretty clear Gonzaga didn't expect it either, he had no answer for the game plan and lost as a result.
Gonzaga had a dangerous stand up game, and same with his ground game... Couture took it to him at his weak spot and won.
Randy has made his living exploiting the weaknesses of his opponents, put him against a guy like Fedor, who has no weaknesses, and I don't think he'd be able to do much.

Oh I have a raging hard-on for fedor. i mean my gf is jealous... but no one can honestly say couture isnt a beast.. a true legend, the greatest MMA champion.

Im hoping they will throw fedor into the ring with couture IMMEDIATELY so fedor will be nervous, he'll feel out of place, he'll e unfocused, and he'll lose. randy beating fedor as HW champ then retiring is the best ending to a career i can imagine. his greatest will never be doubted future MMA fans will know his name, people will end their prayers in coutures name i pray amen, and all will be right in the world.

That being said though, I won't take anything from Fedor. He's very, very good. I just don't like him staying away from UFC. No Sambo? Give me a break. I gurantee his UFC paycheck would have him lining happily at home, maybe coaching some new Sambo guys. Suck it up.
It's not JUST about money, it's national pride. It's like a soccer player being offered the chance to make millions for a large club or getting to captain their national team in the world cup. Fedor's already made a piss-load of cash from his fights in Pride, Bodog, etc. Money isn't as much of an issue for him as it used to be.

That said, I hope Fedor comes and shows the UFC what real ground and pound is.

A beast? Yes. A legend? Yes. Greatest MMA champion? I can honestly say no.

Randy Couture is a phenom at 44 yes, but Fedor is 31 and his skills are just beyond anyone in the sport. Fedor isn't a Tim Sylvia, he brings it to finish it EVERY time. The only chance Randy has is cutting Fedor early and holding on for dear life until the referee makes a doctor look at it.

I'm not trying to be a nuthugger here, I'm simply being a realist.

Randy's a phenom for his age, Fedor is a phenom because of what he's accomplished sinced his inception in MMA.

In 27 fights:

17 have ended in the 1st round.
14 Wins via submission.
6 T/KOs
7 Unanimous Decisions.
1 Loss. (due to a cut early from an illegal blow in a tournament where a victor was necessary.)
1 No contest.

Undefeated in Pride FC since June 23rd, 2002 (Over 5 YEARS!!)

Big names defeated:

-Mark Coleman x2 (former Heavyweight Pride Grand Prix Champ)

-Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira x2 (former HW Pride Champ, ranked #3 HW in the world)

-Mirko "Cro Cop" Filopovic (OWGP Champ, ranked #2 HW in the world)

-Mark Hunt (Top 10 HW ranked fighter)

-Ricardo Arona (Top 10 Ranked LHW fighter)

-Kevin Randleman (former UFC Champ)

-Matt Lindland (Ranked #2 MW in the world).


Others:
-Renato Babalu Sobral, Gary Goodridge, etc.


Fedor's achieved THIS much and he's only 31 years of age.
