At least according to Randy Couture. When asked Wednesday about the winner of his Saturday fight with Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira possibly being next in line for the Brock Lesnar-Shane Carwin winner, Couture said "That's been tossed around". Couture still hasn't ruled out moving back to 205, where one interesting possible fight is Anderson Silva.

I like Randy and Nog but they would get crushed by Lesnar and Couture would be looking like Forrest if he fought Silva. I'm not sure what to do with either one.

Maybe have the winner fight Cro Cop if he wins. I'd like to see Cro Cop vs Couture

Neither deserves it, even if they have a very impressive fight. This will be Randys 2nd fight in 2 years and he lost his last one plus Nog has looked like **** in all his fights in the UFC. Hopefully Nog retires after the loss and Randy drops to lightheavyweight. What about Tito/Randy 2? Lots of big fights for Randy in that division.

I'm hoping Cro Cop and Nog lose so they setup CC vs. Nog 2

So, you hope the 46-year old moves down a weight class and the 33-year old retires?

I would like to see whoever wins this fight, fight Cain if he wins. Then, whoever wins that fight will get their shot at the champ.

Hopefully Nog and Coture put on one of the best fights we have ever seen and they get back the respect they both deserve from all these fair weather fans. Nog has always tanken a beating and still manages to win, this is nothing new. What happened in the Tim Sylvia match up is exactly what everyone thought would happen. If Nog was in the hospital leading up to the Mir fight then I can see how he had a bad match up. Lets at least get past this fight before we start putting people in retirement.

Matchups I want to see:

-CroCop vs Couture
-Couture vs Lesnar 2
-Couture vs Velasquez
-Carwin vs CroCop
-Carwin vs Velasquez
-Lesnar vs Velasquez


Matchups I don't really want to see:

-CroCop vs Nogueira
-Dos Santos vs Nogueira
-Velasquez vs Nogueira
-Carwin vs Nogueira
-Couture vs Dos Santos


Make something happen from the first list ASAP, UFC.

I don't know if either would deserve it but they are probably the two best fights right now.

At some point his 46-year old body is going to say "that's enough" and he's going to fall off the map. That *could* be this Saturday. None of us know for sure.

As much as I want Nog to win, I just can't convince myself that he's going to. I finally decided to stop picking this fight with my heart and to pick it with my brain, so I ended up switching my pick to Randy.
