Could a prime 205 Couture have beaten Machida?
When Couture was beating the snot out of Liddell and Ortiz he looked phenomenal. His wrestling, striking, conditioning and raw power was unequaled.
I saw Couture's recent documentary, which showed that he was distracted by personal issues when he fought Liddell a second and third time. It would make sense, as he did not look as hungry or focused as he was in their first fight.
So I ask, as I think the idea is pretty interesting, could Couture have been the guy to beat Machida?
