Some day age will catch up with Randy Couture. Saturday was not that day.

Randy has 2 fights left on his contract. He will be 45 when his contract is up. Unless they sign Fedor in a hurry, I don't see age or any opponents catching up with him.

No one else finds it odd that Couture is indeed getting better with age?

Kinda like he found the "fountain of youth" during his brief retirement...

Or perhaps that fountain came in needle form?

Is that based on anything other than pure conjecture? Also, steroids accelerate the aging of muscles and tendons etc, and would slow him down, hurt is flexability severely etc. Think that would have helped him go to a draw in a submissions match w/ one of the worlds best grapplers in Jacare? He has had good gameplans and executed them. Also hes likely tested since it was a championship bout. Please dont throw around accusations about someone who has never given any reason to warrant them. Its not like he's looking huge compared to years ago anyways.

I agree. Couture is proabably the VERY last person I would ever suspect of taking steroids.

HgH doesn't accelerate the aging, in fact it slows it down.

There are also no tests for it...

I don't find it odd at all. If you have ever read about Randy's diet, it would make you puke. Fish in the morning. A bowl of spinach for lunch and then a big heaping bowl of mixed vegies for dinner. His work ethic is second to none. And then he gameplnas for every fight. Probably the smartes fighter who ever stepped into MMA

His diet has kept him from getting older?

He is just as strong and fast as he was 4 years ago, that must be some good spinach...
