It's not an ego thing? Please, I'm sure he misses competing but yes, it is an ego thing...how else would you explain the fact that "Oh, well if Tito wins then I'll come out of retirement and fight him..." if it was all about the "will to compete" why wouldn't he want to fight the WINNER of the Tito/Chuck fight?

So now that Tito lost, well he's going to try something else, and go for Sylvia...to me it just seems like a cowardly move to do to avoid Chuck like that.
Because he knows he only has a few fights left in him. He can't waste his time fighting cans the guy is in his 40's. He wanted to fight again and he has star power. That is like saying when Muhammed Ali came back to fight Foreman he should have just fought some D-league chump instead of Forman. He want's to compete and he wants to do it on the big stage with a lot hanging in the balance I don't understand how you can fault a guy for that.

Fighting Tim Sylvia is one thing but I pray he doesn't fight Cro Cop. I don't want to see one of my favorites of all time take that beating. I hope he doesn't get really hurt.

I'm not saying he should come back and fight some hacks.

I'm saying that he's obviously wanting to come back and fight a fight that he knows he'll win...hence him wanting to fight Tito if Tito were the champ...and now wanting to fight Sylvia, which I'm sure will be for the title.

To me I think it's kind of selfish for the Natural to want to come back and challenge Tito for the title, a guy he manhandled through 5 rounds....then challenge Sylvia for a title to a guy he knows he can work the clinch and possibly take to the ground...

To me it's kind of out of ego to want to come back and challenge for a title right away when you've had over a year of absence and have done nothing credible since then to earn a title fight.

And like someone else said, the only thing the Natural has coming for him if he does beat Sylvia is a date with CC....which will probably end badly if Couture got clipped by Liddell twice, CC is going to give him a brain hemorrhage.

Well I guess when Randy said "This is the last time you're going to see these gloves or these shorts in this octagon." he meant he was going to update his wardrobe.

You would hate to see his return be a frustrating bout similar to the Monson/Silvia fight - decision going to Silvia. Can Randy strike with Silvia? People are probably of the opinion Silvia doesn't have the standup Chuck has, but like people have mentioned, his size seems to dominate smaller guys.

Listen if one of the greatest of all time comes back I personally don't think he should earn a title shot. And like I said before he doesent have the time to earn a shot he is in his 40's. And saying he want's to fight Tito cause he knows he will win is silly. He want's to fight Tito because everyone on the planet want's to fight Tito. I wan't to fight Tito. Dana knows he is a big draw so why waste the few fights he has left on the heavyweight trash in the UFC. Were you complaining when Gracie came back and fought Hughes????

I don't know Randy has had a hard time with bigger guys. I love Randy and want him to win bad but he has trouble with big guys and they don't come any bigger than Sylvia.

If Tito had beaten Chuck, then I very much doubt Randy could manhandle him like he did the first time! Hell, Tito could probably have walked on water if he beat the number 1 Light Heavy Weight of the world! So how would that have been a step down? Also, what makes you think fighting Tim Sylvia is easier then Chuck Liddell? Yeah Sylvia is boring but when Monson got him on the ground, he couldn't do sh*t! As far as the getting a title shot, who else in the heavyweight division is qualified to get a shot now? Vera's out, Gonzaga refused, Mirko is fighting Sanchez, AA already fought Tim three times. Right now, Randy is the best pick!
