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.
