Tim Sylvia Vs. Randy Couture

Lets say that Couture beat Ricco Rodriguez at UFC 39 to win the title for third time and had to defend against Sylvia at 41. Who do you think would have won?

At that time Couture might have had a chance against him...but he would have been manhandled by the Sylvia that beat Arlovski in their last fight. Sylvia has become a different fighter between UFC 41 and now.

To be fair to Sylvia he did pass a unrinalisses test after his fight in UFC 41 so he probably wasn't on juice at the time.

Silvia was alllllllllll juiced up back then. The knots he wallopped on Gan's head might have move coutures hairline forward?jk Randy was a smaller hw and the wrestling hw gave him a hard time. The sluggers he did better with, so I think that Randy would've pulled it out with just plain heart, or Tim is the 1st to knock him out instead of chuck. go figure
