"look, who knew?"

it's just a marketing thing...

Randy wanted to come back, he dislikes Sylvia.
not to mention that its only a 3 fight deal, he might never fight Cro Cop

He's the #1 contender because he draws more than any other Heavyweight in the UFC.

Its all about selling tickets and PPV

Couture is loved by fans, Timmy is rather hated.
The UFC knows on any night Randy can win (well any fighter can really) he just has a better shot in a title match. They couldn't set up Mirko Vs. Tim, Tim Vs. AA 4, or Tim vs. Vera (because of Veras leaving)

This doesn't really leave much... Randy out shines any of the 3 names I didnt just say. Fans will back Randy in this one and to be honest I'm glad to see he gets a shot, if he wins he will truely go down as one of the greats for his preformances in title matches.


WAR RANDY

My 12 fighter army is as follows:

Dan Henderson
Mac Danzig
Mirko "the man" Filipovic
Anderson Silva
Fedor and Aleks
Mark Hunt
BJ Penn
Q. Rampage Jackson
Karo Parisyan
John Fitch
Frank Shamrock

which delegitimizes the whole thing...

if he's getting a title shot because of the "draw" and not because he earned it, then what the hell is the point?

whiskey, racism, money, grease, twinkie's, guns.....yep lol thats about it
