Kevin is on one of my favirote fighters ever.Was he a waste of talent?
He doesn't have the perfect record,but he managed to pull off some major accomplishments.Even if he lost a good deal of his fights.
1.Former UFC champion
2.Knocked out Mirko Crocop when he was still considered a very vicious striker.(not saying CC sucks now,but you get what I mean)
3.Gave Bas Rutten a damn good fight.Despite losing and giving us a lot of lay N pray,he pulled off what very few others accomplished in Pancrase by keeping Rutten on his back.
4.Performed that beautiful suplex on Fedor.He lost the fight but pulled off an amazing technique and made Fedor look vunerable
5.Gives some of the greatest,yet most bizarre interviews of all time.
I think that despite having his own personal demons,he has continued to fight.I think Randleman is a lot like Vitor Belfort.At best,their unstoppable athleates that display a great amount of control and skill in their bouts.At worst,they show us what happens to so many talented competitiors in this sport.They lose their drive to succseed.I know Randleman and Vitor have different backrounds and lifes,but I think their performances echoe eachother in certain aspects.
AGREED!!! (The site won't let me give you props though for some reason gotta spread the love)
He's actually my FAVORITE fighter. Another reason he loses his matches is because we all know the hammer house has bad cardio and submission defense and he blows 25% percent of his gas tank just shuffling his feet and jumping up in the air before the bell rings.
and I truely believe he only took steroids because of some serious injuries. I heard he was training with Randy until he had that breakdown with the cops. If he didn't have the breakdown and trained with Randy he could easily get a job with anybody an dominate...Plus Randy never gets tapped so he could teach Kevin a thing or two.
I COMPLETELY STRONGLY DISAGREE with blaming Mark Coleman with giving him steroids. Coleman fought at the same event where Kevin got caught and nobody said nothing about him. I'm not sure if they tested him but they should have since his teammate tested positive..I'm telling you it's probably because of his serious injuries...
