Honestly, it's a hard pick to make.

Coutoure, known by many, has won many, is very very very good, and is excellent in taking people down.

Gonzaga, i feel, much stronger, knocked out cro cop, honestly, u take coutoure and cro cop, cro will get it.

It's a hard one to call, im struggling on, Second round KO by Gonzaga or Second Round Submission by Coutoure, how do yall feel?

I dont think coutoure will be able to stand with gonzaga, but will he be able to take him down, and i dont feel that gonzaga can handle the ground game of coutoure.

Let me know your opinions, it would help definatele!

Couture by submission? Mabye in like round three or four after Gonzaga gasses but not in the early rounds.

I was thinking of putting like $1,000 on Gonzaga, but i think i will stay away from that fight. Instead I'm betting on Guida.

yeah i think i'm going to go coutoure jd no way sub. g&p tko maybe but not sub. i think if randy can get the takedown he wins if gonzaga can get on top or keep it standing i think it could be bad for randy. this one is to close to call for me.

As we all know, We can't count out Randy. But looking back when Randy was at heavyweight before, he could not hang with guys like Barnett and Rodriguez, that had the size and grappling/bjj skills. Soooo I think I will have to go with GG on this one. It will be a WAR though.

My bet is on Gonzaga. He's got great submissions/ground work and very impressive stand up. I agree about not counting out Randy -- he's versitile, experienced and strong. Randy's last several opponents have all been brawlers, not submissions guys. Further, Tim Sylvia fights like a graceless, lumbering dope. Not Gonzaga. He's fast and very impressive. For those who say Randy with GNP, remember that Gonzaga did major GNP damage on Cro Cop before the ref (inexplicably) stood them both up.

I don't think that Gonzaga is a sure thing (are there any sure things left in the UFC anymore?), but he's a much more formidable opponent that Sylvia. Even Randy said he was much more concerned about fighting Gonzaga than Cro Cop.

How can you expect Couture to finish off GG if he couldn't finish paper champion: Tim? If Couture wins it will def be by decision IMO. It's hard for me to see Randy pulling this one off though. I don't see Couture having much of an advantage where ever this fight goes, ground or standing. GG by decision is my pick, even though I really hate going against Randy. The only way I see Randy taking it is if GG's cardio isn't up to par and he ends up gassing. Of course I'll still be cheering for Randy though.

Im betting Randy and don't have any doubts. I feel very confident Randy will pull this off. Probably decision, but one way or another Randy takes this one.

Man I really want Couture to win. Hard to pick against him, but I can see him getting knocked out (flashes of Chucks right hand) in the first or second round. I think if Randy can get it into the 3rd round we could see him win take it the rest of the way.

I wouldn't call him a paper champ, since he held the title twice. You can attack Tim for fighting not to lose or his lazy jabbing but it doesn't mean he didn't earn what he got. As for couture not finishing Tim its hard finishing a guy who goes all defence the whole fight.

I want Couture to win this, and since I'd probably bet with him even if he was fighting Fedor of course I'll bet for him here.
