it would really hurt to see randy lose to CC after the way he handled tim, and even though CC is my favorite fighter(outside of pat miletich) i dont think i could help but cheer for randy. as a fan it's going to be a shame to see either of those guys lose, but common sense tells me CC has a very big advantage in that fight.

randy wont last past 2 rounds with CC...couture is going to try for the take down and as soon as he does CC is going to give him the left kick from hell and hes out..not to say randy will not dominate 90% of the ufc HW's but CC is too much.

I didn't count Randy out in the Sylvia fight and I won't count him out for this one either...

Alot of Randy's takedowns come from the clinch, which makes them more difficult to defend and can take away any advantage of having a good sprawl because he won't be diving in for a leg as much...

What really impressed me was Randy's ability to literally man handle the much bigger guy in Sylvia... CC is not much larger than Couture and probably only has about 10 lbs on him...

If Randy can get inisde and control the fight, he will get the UD just because he's so good at impossing his will if giving the opportunity... But if he can't get in on CC then he loses by KO, my guess would be the third.

That fight against big, slow Timmy, played out exactly how i expected.
They fight 10 times, you'd see the same thing 9 times.
Lets be realistic: Randy does NOT stand a chance against Mirko. It is a very very very bad matchup for Couture.
Mirko is a bigger, stronger, harder hitting Chuck Liddel. CC's takedown defense is the best in the game. Mirko eats wrestlers for breakfast.
Remember how Mirko handled Coleman?
Couture will not be able to close the distance against Mirko.
Yeah, I know; Randy's striking is certainly a notch or two above Coleman's. But The Natural will never be able to use that over-hand right so effectively against CC.
If they eventually fight, I'll bet every dollar I have on CC 1st rd TKO.

Randy put Chuck on his back easily but Chuck gets back up better than Cro Cop does.
I would bet on Randy for sure. I see him taking CC down and controling him on the ground the whole fight. Randy will not try and stand with CC like he did Sylvia, he's smarter than that. If Randy takes CC down it's done.




No way couture will get past cro cops guard if he does get him down, if Fedor couldnt i dont see Couture pullin it off. Couture is good but i think people are overatin him now just cuz he beat sylvia, a hugely overated fighter. Crocop by KO/TKO.

thats the only reason why i did not want to see randy beat tim, because then he has to fight cro cop. i cant see that going well for randy.
