I actually think Randy has a decent chance compared to a lot of the potential opponents for Machida. I don't think he'd win but I think he has the best tools, with his greco and dirty boxing, for giving Machida some trouble.

Machida would murder him. He needs to earn his shot.

Randy would need to get close enough over and over and over again. Machida has no interest in standing and trading, which is what Randy uses to achieve that clinch. I actually think Machida's (excessively evasive) style is particularly difficult for Randy's up close battle plans.

He talks about how he'd use his wrestling against him in this interview video, at the 14:00 point.

He wants to fight the best in the world... when did this become something to find issue with, and not to admire?

I don't think it isn't something to admire per se but like others have said Randy wants to fight everyone. It does get a little repetitive to the point of annoying.

From what I can tell, he's only really come out and said, 'I want to fight Fedor'. He's also mentioned that he'd be interested in the idea of fighting Lyoto and Anderson. That's three fighters. Some might say the three top fighters in the world. And so I reiterate. Randy wants to fight the best. Not every fighter in MMA. I'm not being disrespectful. I just think that some of you are severely sensationalizing this. Furthermore, as MMA fans, we should be thrilled by the prospect of Randy Couture versus any of the three aforementioned fighters. Not rolling our eyes at it.
