    Ya, as great as Couture is I think he is wearing down. He definitely needs to take Chuck to the ground though, he can't try to exchange with him. I know it worked for him in their first fight, but I think Liddell was just caught off guard.

    I remember that one, Chuck got his ass slammed. But I do agree if Randy tries to exchange with him, it won't last long.

    It'll be a great fight. Kinda natural to favor Chuck but I would never count Randy out and would like to see him take it.

    I have all the respect in the world for Randy Couture he is an amazing fighter at age 42 but lets face it is fights are boring has hell, gets the guy on the fences and Ground and pound him, same has liddland and all.

    I rather see George St-Pierre against Hughes the long awaited rematch, or David Loiseau against Rich Franklin.

    I like Babalu but i will not order this UFC ppv.

    You have a serious point there, Arlovski should move to Pride has i have said many time before, what a waste in UFC, unless he likes second grade fighters like Buentello YUKE.

    Why are Keith Jardine and Mike Whitehead fighting at UFC 57?! They were the freaking losers of TUF 2... and Mike Whitehead sucks ass...

    BTW, Liddell to win by hip breakage.

    COUTURE only wants this matchup for ONE selfish reason, and i'm gonna tell you what it is...
    It's really logical if you think about it....
    First, you have couture, who has hair everywhere except for the TOP portion of his head...
    then you have Liddell, who only has hair on the top of his head, and no where else.....
    Couture plans to take Liddell down, however, he will not follow through w/ some ground and pound...instead, he wishes to get a full mount, discard his gloves, and Rip the mohawk right off of Liddell noggin, and then flee the Octagon w/ it intact, so that his doctors can surgically implant it on his own head....
    This will give him at least 10 more years in the arena, at least Appearance wise....Like i said, SELFISH....

    How I see it

    Randy is by far superior on the ground but chuck was a D1 all american at cal poly twice. This is why Chuck has such a vicous sprawl, however Chuck's cardio is suspect at times but Coutures was also in his last match against MVA however I see that not as a good comparrison becouse all the wrestling would be highly draining on the cardio. Also he weighed in at 203 which I believe is highly due to stress he was going through at that time due to his divorce.Also you take into account the eyepoke(accidentle I firmly believe) which Couture said upset and he chased chuck allowing a great counter puncher to do what he does best. Also chucks footwork has improved alot allowing him to move in more lateral movement to stop from getting pinned against the fence .So if you look at their first and second fight I would tend to take a middle road and say if it gets into the later rounds third or fourth I would take couture. Wait I love that guy I will take Couture no matter what

    I agree, I think the eye poke had alot to do with it, Chuck circled to that side, seemed like Randy didnt see it coming.
