Machida should finish Couture here quite easily, I can't see Couture being able to clinch Machida against the cage for three rounds considering Machida's immense Sumo skills and ability to keep fighters at a distance.

I definitely won't put any bets down on this fight, but if Big Nog can win the grappling and striking against Randy then Lyoto should be able to dominate him.

I've heard it before, and Dana White corrects people the best, 'I have learned to never bet against Randy Couture.' Say what you want but I think Randy is going to go out on a huge win.

Dude, I appreciate your list of awesome. None of it untrue. BUT, its been a god damn long time since any of those fights. There has been a lot of unimpressive fights since. Each one slower and more painful to watch then the last. He hasn't properly competed for an age. Every year that goes by means a lot more to a 45+ year old then to a younger chap. When was the last time Couture beat anybody convincingly? Gonzaga? That was 4 years ago.

Yeah... walking out to "strangle hold" before he choked Mark Coleman in the 2nd round was neither convincing nor impressive because any middle aged fool could whip Stephan Bonner's ass and make a fight of the night with Shogun

edit: Not letting the best boxer to ever step into the Octagon throw a single punch didn't impress me none niether

I love your efforts friend.... but come on now. What do you think Machida would do to Coleman? Rua looked horrible in his fight against the old wobbly muppet. None of these things come even remotely close to taking on a prime Machida.

The most impressive thing I've seen Couture do of late is surviving those sub attempts against Nog. Shows he still has some good core strength. However, Nog had to barely touch him to drop him. Machida is going to punch him in the face, not try to sub him. So, we come back to the clinch game of Couture which nobody has seen tested for 1.5 years.

Actually, all this serious debating is making my knob shrink. Ifs not becoming of a gentleman of my ridiculousness. Truth is, if Couture wins, I'll be amused to say the least! But he wont. Take that to the bank. ( Not that banks provide any kind of security these days )

All depends on what Machida steps into the cage, if he starts the same way he did against Rampage then I think Randy could easily win a round or two off him.

If Machida comes out the blocks and starts throwing kicks and punches from the get go then he will take a TKO victory.

It hurts to say this but I've got Machida for this one. Although I'd LOVE to see Couture, Cro Cop, Big Nog, Ortiz, Fedor, Wanderlei go on winning for years to come it just isn't gonna happen. I'm gonna go with a TKO in maybe R2 or early R3. But please please Randy, prove everyone wrong, again!

You were being serious?

Seemed ridiculous enough to me.

How about a friendly sig bet?
