I was not sure who to pick here, but you should know, the link (web address - cut & paste) below provided me with no insight, only laughter. Randy doesn't have his own video!

I think Randy's best chance will be to play conservative in the first couple rounds. If he does, GG will gas in the third and Randy will take the decision.
I don't think GG cardio comes close to Couture's.

This is one of the hardest fights to pick ever. I actually think it is pretty even, but the mental edge and experience going to Couture by far. Look how he did against a much larger and more powerful opponent in Big Tim, he beat him mentally (granted, Tim isn't very good, but he was more then physically capable of destroying Couture).

I think he could do the same for Gonzaga, but you can't underestimate a hungry young gun like GG, who definitely has all the tools to dismantle Couture. So my opinion probably doesn't help too much, but if you believe Randy will execute a perfect gameplan to grind out a decision, pick him (he's always good at defying the odds), but I doubt Couture will finish him.

if GG had not knocked out CC who here would pick him to beat Couture? no one.... and even if he does win he wont hold the belt for long. CC will come back and KO him....Nog, AA, Sylvia!!!!, will all beat him

You just lost all credibility with this post. Couture can't "destroy" anyone. He couldn't even finish the clumbsy Sylvia (how fast would CC and GG finish him off )

If anything, CC would "destroy" Couture...and no doubt GG in the rematch. Think about it, if someone is not motivated it is not THAT hard to beat them if you are a professional fighter. If Fedor ever comes to a match without caring about it (I don't think this will ever happen), even Lindland would beat him. Too bad for everyone Fedor trains like an animal no matter who he is fighting.

That being said, I have to lean in favor of Couture via gameplan, but I don't know if I'm gonna bet on it, GG is so hungry.

Im gona pick randy. He showed when fighting sylvia that he will not be easy hit even though tim made him look good he will not under estimate gonzaga's standup like cro cop. for gonzaga's to win this fight he has to get on top of randy not inposable but a tall ask

That is a ridiculous think to say.

A list of the people he lost to.
2X Chuck Liddell - whom he had beaten.
Vitor Belfort - whom he also beat 2X.
Ricco Rodriguez
Josh Barnett
Valentijn Overeem
Mikhail Illoukhine
Enson Inoue

Combined record of all the people he lost to is 136 - 59 - 1.

Remember that he didn't fight until after he turned 30. We might not even have seen Randy in his prime. He's great. He has been fighting at the top level for a long time. Win loss record means vary little. Try to think before you post. Saying stuff like that makes you look like a tool.

The 1st round will be explosive and crazy. But Couture will win in the 2nd GNP!
