I know he has a great history in the sport but honestly, I am not overly excited by him fighting again. Although I would love to see Fedor beat his ass so bad.
Love all mma, and big UFC fan but I do miss Pride.
Big Supporter or British MMA so a shout out to Micheal Bisbing, Paul Taylor and Dan Hardy who are representing well and makeing their mark in the UFC!!!

I agree he's not too pleasing to watch. I mean he's more appealing than say Sherk Hughes or Rashad but I even prefer to watch Tim than Randy

When is this court ruling supposedly over? I though it will end sometime this month.

I gotta say, Randy always says he wants to fight the best... well, what if TIMMY defeats Fedor. Does Randy still want to fight Fedor then? Will Randy go back to the UFC and fight Nog instead (Mir has a 1% chance of beating Nog)?

Well Randy can not claim to be the best HW in the world...IMO he ducked Big Nog and for that reason he can never say differernt as far as I am concerned. The nerve of the guy to say the UFC doesn't have a fight big enough for him really pissed me off as I do believe that Nog on current form is the No 1 in the world. Feodr has the quality to be No 1 but hasn't fought of late thats why I say Nog.

Randy should have stayed in the UFC just to fight Nog. I really believed he ducked him. After that fight fine go chase Fedor. Randy will never go back to the UFC, his pride just wouldn't let that happen and to be honest he would look lke such a dick if he did.

Randy is definatly up their in the HW rankings, better than almost everyone, but I do believe Fedor would beat his ass and Nog would sub him so to me No 3 at best.

The more I think about it the more I think Randy wanted to retire again and needed a way out.

Now he can watch his wife get her ass kicked in teh ring and he can stay healthy and just grow older.

No Skamrock retirement for him, just jump out of the ring and make enough noise doing it that he is in the lime light as much as possible.

Randy = Bitch!

YH yh as we all know Couture is a All-time legend but dnt u think it was right for him to retire! Hes like 42 and head shots at that age can cause long term effects look at muhaamad Ali!

In a word....No. I dont think he actually wants to fight the guy. But that is just the way I see it. I am SURE others will say I am wrong.

I just watched randy Couture V's minotauro nogueira and It was a great fight but I think randy may find it hard to fight ture Heavy weights So I was wondering what people think and also how great would be be to see randy drop to light heavy weight again and fight Lyoto Machida and show the young bucks how a true MMA chap fights and become the first man to be a 6 time UFC champ 3 time heavy and 3 time light heavy. Reply and let me know what you think

Randy put on great performance last night. Even though he lost I am impressed by
1. The fact that he was knocked on his ass twice (pounded with hammer fists at one point) and got right back in it.
2. He still remains unsubmitted.

Impressive. Very impressive. I wanna be like him when I get old

Randy showed that even if he gets in trouble he is calm and he has that crazy ability to not get subbed out. His ability is with out question even for an older guy. NOG looked really good as well. But lets be truethful do you think either will sub or KO brock for the belt?

Randy has a few interesting fights left in him and he could shock the world again. he looked awsome and in great shape and even if his chin is not the greatest...he is still not bad. I have to say that the reffing was much better on this fight than the Brock fight. He had the same thing happen to him in that fight and they stopped it. Granted Brock would have just kept on blasting him.......
