i'm not worried about randy getting hurt in the silvia fight. i want to know what he is gonna do if he actually wins? is he gonna defend the tiltle against cro-cop? i can't see that working out well for him.

Yeh, i think it would be brilliant if Randy wins as Sylvia isn't one of my favourite fighters in the UFC.
Maybe a rematch if Randy does win!!

if he wins, he should retire right away. That'll keep the LHK from hunting him down

He will defend his title against AA first because I don't think Mirko will get a title shot after just beating Sanchez. If Randy gets pasted AA, then he meets Mirko.

Wait until someone beats Chuck, drop down to 204, take that belt too, then retire.
Problem is, he may have to wait forever for that.

After listening to his interview on The Beatdownm it really seems that Randy is intrested in fighting Crocop, that Cro Cop was one of the reasons why he wanted to come back. As UFC improves their roster, people want to come back and fight.

High hopes for Capt. America. Say he does take out Tim, like you all have said already LHK will destroy him.

I do agree that the LHK will probably be all she wrote for The Natural....but we can't forget Coutoure's experience. He's beat a lot of people that noone thought he would be because he's smarter and he knows how to train for certain opponents. Remember when he fought Vitor Belfort (back when Belfort was a great fighter)? Belfort had hands like nobody has ever saw before, but Randy out-boxed him. He's beat Liddell, he's spanked Tito (quite literally). I don't really see him beating Cro Cop, but it wouldn't surprise me if he did pull off the upset.

whoever wins this fight loses to crocop regardless, but it would be fun to see a 3 time HW champ

WAR Randy! Even if he loses to Tim or CC I still love the guy's heart.

Good points BTW

i honestly don't see his first fighting going anywhere, silvia is just going keep him at distance with the jab. i only threw this out because we know how randy works and he's surprised me before

My bet is that Randy has something up his sleeve in the way of a gameplan.

Gameplans are highly under rated. The plan lost Hughes and Franklin a belt and somehow kept Sylvia's belt for a while longer over Monson. Randy's experience will count for something in that area.

It's possible he can close the distance, but even if he gets him down, I don't see him finishing the fight unless he goes for a sub. That's been a rarity for him. Also, the clinch won't work for him , because of Sylvias height. I fear even if he gets him down he won't be able to finish him. By the 3rd or 4th round he might be too tired to take down someone that size. Still, he's my all-time favorite fighter so I gotta have hope, He's found a way to surprise people a lot of times in his career. Cro-cop is at least similar in size and weighs less. He'd have to press him against the cage and take him and keep him down to have any chance. However, cro-cop is similar to Chuck in his take down defense. While I think Cro-cop will beat Sylvia, styles make fights, and size does matter. Randy might have a better chance againt Mirko "IF" he gets by Sylvia. Big if though. I just don't want to see him lose again, it breaks my heart.

I love Randy Couture to death but I just don't think he can deal with Tim Sylvia. Don't get me wrong I love to see Tim lose but that might have to wait for Cro Cop.

You might be right. But Randy is smart and he has surprised us before. He says he has ideas about how to beat a big man like Tim. That's what makes this a good fight. I am looking forward to it. Hope he makes Sylvia work hard for it.

Couture is a great fighter and all, but he does not stand a chance against Sylvia.

If anyone thinks he can beat Sylvia, I will wager them when the time comes. Easy money.

Randy is a student of the game and has tons of heart, but even that may not be enough to beat big Tim. I'll still be pulling for The Natural all the way, but I'll be making Tim my pick and placing wagers on him.

We all love Randy - I think he's got a good shot against Sylvia - definitely not a favorite due to Tim's size but if he fights smart like the Old Randy his game may still be good enough - the only thing I'm concerned about is that Randy was starting to get the Hollywood shine to him and people tend to lose their edge when that happens - only GSP can smile ALL the time and still beat people up

i dont know why everyone thinks randy will lose...i wouldn't place any wagers on this one. randy is great fighter, and although i think tim has got a great shot at proveing himself, he seams to unpredictable fight to fight. ill be watching

I think if Randy wins we seee Randy/Cro-cop. if he loses he should move down to lightHVY and spank Tito again. Literally

I'll take that bet. Easy money for me thanks to the LAME-iac. I'm sorry, I have nothing personal against him. He is way too conservative to be wearing that belt. He is forgetting that at this level... he is also getting paid to entertain. If he was in Rome, they'd sick the lions on him. Randy is the people's champion. I really think he can take down Sylvia and give him a good beating.

I think Chuck broke Randy's jaw in for an up and coming Sylvia knock out. I like Randy a lot. He even came out and visited us in Iraq, so I've got nothing but love for the big guy. I just think Sylvia might be able to put it to him if Sylvia trains hard enough.

If Randy wins┬┐?┬┐?....

MmmmmMmmmm...

Title defense on Andrei Arlovski and loses the belt with Crocop.

if he beats Tim he will get his ass rocked by CroCop.

I like Randy too but I feel this is a really bad decision. Kind of similar to Deion Sanders coming back to the Ravens and sucking. Except Deion didnt have to worry about getting his head kicked off.

1/31/07 11:02:27AM
I agree i think its a bad idea to return especially with the addition of CROCOP and there is still arlovski that make it near impossible to keep the title if he can even get past tim

I am NOT a big fan of Sylvia but I don't see Randy beating him, but if he wins he'll probablly fight AA and I think it's a horrible matchup for Randy, not quite as bad as Chuck but AA striking style is perfect for beating Randy. Then we can watch a great fight between AA and CC with CC becoming the new heavyweigh champ!

For me Randy is a bigger underdog in this fight than Sanchez is vs CC.
Doesn't matter how much I analyse the match-up, I always come to the same conclusion: Randy can't win this fight vs Big Tim.

I'm glad people on here don't share my beliefs as I'll make some hefty e-money off this fight.

Sry Randy. You are THE hero of MMA but you won't win this fight. Not in a million years.

Wont happen. Arlovski and Randy have trained extensivley in the past......they wont fight. Randy should retire if they want him to fight Cro cop but he wont duck the fight. He would take it and get KO'd........ poor Randy.
