    i think machida would win. when have we ever seen the guy get takendown? im sure he has i just cant think of a time. i think hed jab and run his way to a tko or decision and randy will have nothing for him.

    I'm sure all he needs to do is ask for Machida and UFC will give it to him.

    This feels like a little bait on Couture's part to see if the UFC and Machida's camp are willing to give it a shot. He's not calling Machida outright, but seeing if he'd get a response that Machida'd be down.

    I said it a while ago, but the Machida matchup is win-win for Randy. A retirement match in defeat vs. a top five LHW where he goes out guns blazing against one of the best OR a feelgood upset victory against a top contender, which would be a sound argument for a retirement title fight vs. the LHW champion.

    I understand IF Machida's camp and/or the UFC are tenative to give Randy a match vs. Machida because between the dirtyboxing, grappling, cardio and really underrated boxing, that could definately spell trouble or at least a legitimate challenge for Lyoto and three straight isn't something anybody wants. With that being said, right now Machida is faaaaaar better than your Franklins or Forrests at the moment, so a Randy matchup not only spells money, but is a solid LHW main event.

    And as I always say, there's always interest and support for Randy Couture and a showdown with Machida is promising for all sides IMO, especially Randy.

    what? Yeah because randy dont have enough money as it is. Fuck all the money, thats what ruins things it always does. How about actually doing something because you love the sport.

    I hold no sympathy. There's a lot of fighters out there who had to face top competition one fight after another. look at Rich Franklin. you wanna be the best you gotta beat the best.

    This is just off the top of my head, but I think..I THINK, Randy has plenty of money already and he may do a job because he wants to, not what they pay him.

    Steve Cofield comments:

    The Rua fight won't happen because that would mean Couture gets an immediate title shot after beating guys like James Toney, Brandon Vera and Mark Coleman. Couture wants Machida, but there are some with the promotion who worry about the fact that Brazilian has lost two straight fights. A third loss would be crushing for "The Dragon."
