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.
While I will agree that he has not had any significant fights the level of my quotes he has still been fighting and competing. The problem is you can say he is old, faded, etc, but in each of his fights he did have he was competitive. Say what you want about his competition, but they were legit fighters who would have destroyed Couture if he wasn't the specimen of health that he is.

And funny enough you are trying to diminish Couture's last few fights when we could say the same about Lyoto. He had the worst fight of his career vs Shogun who matched him strike for strike. Then in the rematch he got KO'ed for the first time. Then he has the next worst fight in his career vs Rampage. Lyoto is not exactly on the upswing of his career at the moment.

Oldfans trolling exploits are well documented from when he started. The horrible Toney vs Couture gifs were really pissing off people who lacked a sense of humor

Rua was a damn dangerous opponent in both Machida fights. Followed by Rampage. Those are tough competitive fights. Whereas Randys fighting Coleman and Toney are not. I dont see what the debate is here. How can anybody say they know anything about Randys current abilities and limits when hes been completely untested for so long.

Yeah, sorry, just my weird sense of humour kicking in !

Taktarov was genuinely good though, and Hackney was kinda bad ass to me..
