Both fighters have accomplished clinch grappling back-grounds. But because of the other dynamics involved, i cant see either fighter enforcing a clinch gameplan but rather, both nullifying the others clinch game. Couture doesnt have the base to control fedor if he gets takedowns, evidenced by how Nog made Couture look rudimentary on the ground.

Fedor is the much more explosive on the feet, and Couture has lost more of his reflexes in his career than ive ever had. Fedor catches him. Right on the chin. 2 or 3 times and couture will be out.

This fight is absurd.

Randy Couture hasn't defeated a notable opponent since 2007.

Id bet you that Couture has better cardio, if only for the amount of energy they exert, Fedor swings alot harder and probably depletes his gas tank quicker by doing so, even if their cardio vascular levels are similar.

And Smart could go either way, Fedor's more shrewd and composed. But couture is probably the smarter more tactical fighter.

Couture's cardio is awesome. His new training book is coming out soon

*sigh* I have talked about this so many times back in 2008, I am still sick of talking about it. Sorry OP, this topic is a bit played out, even if it's somewhat aged now.
