Crawboz has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Randy covers some of the advantages/disadvantages in this MMA Weekly interview;

"MMAWeekly: One of the other rumors we heard was that you were possibly going to fight Tim Sylvia for the UFC Heavyweight Championship. Was that ever a possibility?

Randy Couture: Not in a real sense. I haven’t had any fight thrown at me in a real sense. There’s people that have suggested, “Why don’t you come out and fight Tim?” and people have been a little disappointed in his last two performances. I think his last two performances have been great. They’ve been a little bit on the conservative side, I think he’s fighting more not to lose instead of fighting to win. Because of that approach it hasn’t been as exciting as Tim has the capability of being.

I am walking around now at 230lbs, back to my heavyweight days, and can certainly go back and compete in that division, but Tim’s one of the reasons why I chose to go down to light-heavyweight. When guys are starting to be 6’5”-6’10”, cutting weight to make the [265lb] limit – that’s a big man…he’s a very good fighter, very skilled and when you start giving up that kind of weight, you are at a disadvantage and it can be a big problem. No one has seriously approached me with an opportunity to fight Tim Sylvia, so it’s all one in the same, rumors."

i like couture and hate sylvia but i have to go with sylvia on this one randy is too small and too old and ring rust would play a part in this fight as well since randy wouldnt have fought in over a year i dont see randy taking down sylvia or out striking him it pains me to say this but sylvia round 2 ko or sylvia decision (if he decides to be a ****ing ***** again) but you never know with the natural he is kinda a freak of nature maybe he can pull off a Rocky

I hope I"m wrong,but I dont see Randy beating Sylvia. The man is old,been retired and even if not for all those things it would be a tough fight.

This is MMA though. Anything can happen!!

I really dont want this fight to happen. I just dont want Randy to have another loss to end his career. I just dont really see him winning. But it is Captain America so anything could happen.

sylvia's too big

Sylvia will use his size advantage like he always does and either sweat out a decision or land a shot from six feet away!!!
