Couture by decision. I'm not gonna bet either way, because I think it's definitly a close match, and could go either way easily.

okok ill break it down......
seeing gonzaga KO cro cop was amazing! nobody expected that but i think he got lucky i think if he was fighting the cro cop of old he wouldve gottn smashed for sure

seeing couture come out of retirement at 43 years of age and dominate sylvia for 5 rounds...to me that is more impressive.

couture is a better wrestler has way more experience and is a freaking monster and i believe randy can outstrike gonzaga to be honest i dont find gonzaga impressive.....

couture by submission by strikes in round 3



How is the guy not impressive. He came with a perfect gameplan against Crocop..GnP'ed him very nicely from the guard then ....HEAD KICKED CC. That CC might not have been mentally focused but even a 50% CC beats most of the HW's in the world. Any way you slice it a win over CC is huge, and it wasn't like a fluke or anything he pretty much dominated Mirko.

I can't believe anybody even thought about Gonzaga possibly winning! Couture's gonna beat him soundly (probably with his awesome wrestling skills). He has so much experience and..... he freakin' Randy Couture!

Gonzaga is going to be extremly aggressive and take randy to the ground, work the elbows and G&P his way to victory in the first round.

Randy will end up on his back eventually and Gonzaga will GnP him or sub. Chuck already proved that when you take randy's gameplan "away" his gonna get dominated. Randy came back, because he thought that he could beat Tim with a good gameplan and he would be good match up stylewise.

Gonzaga is a bad match up and Randy probably won't have that solid gameplan.
Gonzaga by 2nd round TKO or something like that.
However, I'm still rooting for Randy

Gonzaga - TKO via gnp



Let me get this straight... you think Gonzaga will take Randy down and pound him. Really?



Hey man, maybe GG just likes to take what his opponents do best and use it to beat them with it. Nobody thought Napao would kick Cro Cop's brain out his ear either.

Gonzaga is big... Barnett big. He has an excellent ground game and has trained with Chute Boxe. I think Randy knew what he was talking about when he said that GG was the tougher fight for him.

Napao by decision, setting up GG vs. Fedor.

I just can't see it. I don't think that GG will out wrestle and GnP Randy.

Maybe its the GG v Fabricio Werdum fight. It's not one of his most impressive fights.
GG v Werdum fight here

randy picked gonzaga over cro cop to win. So he has already been washing them an getting his game plan together id say starts out standing up then around 3 round its taken to ground an randy winning

Gonzaga by late TKO.

Good pic of Couture btw. Havn't seen that one.




I think this gameplan for Randy has the highest persentage for success, although it could possibly lead to a boring fight. It kind of breaks down to a bad match up for Randy in styles so he needs to take him to the 4th and 5th rouinds, I dont think Gonzaga's ever fought that long before

I think Randy "Gameplan" Couture is gonna take this one by decision





I meant to quote this one The paragraph above was meant in reply to this statement. I think Randy's best chasnce is to fight for a decesion win and posssibly try and TKO Gonzaga if he gets too exhausted later in the fight

Understood, but that was VERY early in GG's career. Watch the Barnett v. Couture fight... that wasn't very impressive either.
