Chuck KO/TKO. After Brock beats Randy, who knows. You might see this matchup again.

Chuck should win, but hes getting old. But Randy is even older. Neither of the two are what they used to be. IT would be a good fight

Im gonna go with Randy by Decision. I think Chucks mindset must be bad right now as was Randy`s when they fought the 2nd and 3rd fight.

Why would of randys mindset been bad before the 2nd fight? He had the confidence from beating chuck the first time and Just beat tito.

chuck by decision or tko.

It's an interesting question. Unfortunately I think the answer probably has more to do with how well preserved each guy is since they last fought than it does with their relative skill level or with the weight class they fight in.

We've seen both guys win so we know either is a possibility. Chuck won the last two times by KO so that should be the starting point for the discussion--has anything changed to make this outcome less likely the next time they fight? I think it has. Chuck seems to have lost just a bit of his reflexes (speed and timing) and he is getting hit easier and having more difficult hitting other people. Couture also appears to have taken his boxing seriously and is showing good head movement in his recent fights. It's certainly still possible, but I don't think Liddell can land on him as easily as he was able to in his last couple of fights.

If that doesn't happen, or if it happens and Randy has enough to keep going, then I think a Couture decision is most likely. Both guys have so much experience it's tough to imagine either getting subbed on the ground and, despite what happened in the first meeting, I think Chuck's wrestling is good enough that Randy willl have to work to hold dominant position and won't be able to pound on him too badly on the ground.

I'll take Randy by decision based primarily on the fact that he's fought as well in his most recent fights as he ever did (and Chuck hasn't).

I say Randy. I've always been of the op that the weight cut was too much for him. It worked for a cpl matches but for the long term it was too draining. I think at HW Randy would prob'ly pound him out like the first time.
