Insight on Randy's anouncement

--Randy Couture will be announcing on Thursday night's "Inside the UFC" that he is coming out of retirement. It wouldn't shock me if they also announced Tim Sylvia vs. Couture as the main event for the 3/3 PPV in Columbus, OH. The second sentence is nothing anyone has told me directly, but based on a number of things said to me be a few different people in the last few days. Most notable regarding that is the current plan is for Couture to fight at heavyweight for his comeback. I think that's a bad idea. Another indication it may be Sylvia is just the timing of this announcement.

if he comes back as a HW give him to Cro Cop so he can stay in retirement, its to bad he wants to go out like Shamrock. If he does fight sylvia it wont be good for him either. To be honest, im starting to re think sylvia, i think he is to comfortable at the top and when he was gunning for the belt he was knocking people out. so maybe he will turnaround soon.

Doesn't seem like a good time to come out of retirement with HWs like Crocop coming on board. Assuming he's going into the HW class. He's a great fighter but I hope he wasn't inspired by the movie Rocky Balboa. He hasn't really been "retired" long either. But I guess he would want to fight before it is too late and he becomes Grandpa Couture.

Well,I'm afraid the guy is going to embarrass himself. I hope I'm wrong,but the guy is pretty old and the HW division is better and I can't see him getting another crack at Liddel anytime soon,so I can't see him fighting in the LHW.

Couture just needs to go gracefully into retirement IMO or rather stay in it. If he does come out,I"ll likely be rooting for him(depending on his opponent of course),but I'm not feeling good about this idea.

Randy is my all time hero.

Having said that he needs to stay retired. It's amazing what he accomplished at his age or any age for that matter, but he sure didn't look the same after getting knocked out by Chuck. Even his gimme match he won against Vanarsdale he did't look like the same old Captain America. He got out of the heavyweights because he couldn't compete with the bigger guys like Barnett, and his body couldn't gain any weight. Maybe the success of the smaller heavyweights like Monson & Vera are suducing him into thinking he can compete at that weight again. Part of me wants to see him again, but I would rather remember Randy for his major success in the cage then to think of him like Shamrock.
