I was hoping people would finally realize that Randy just isn't what he used to be when he lost to Liddell twice by KO, but Couture has some pretty die-hard fans.
It doesn't really matter at all who wins when Randy versus Coleman. They both are the exact same thing: washed up and finished fighters. They both recently had a fight against Bonnar and Vera, Coleman won a unanimous decision but it certainly wasn't exactly the most impressive performance. Couture won a very controversial decision.
In those fights, they both showed that age does, in fact, matter.
Couture used to be a great wrestler but now he counts on the judges to help him win. It's a wonder how he won against Vera by just holding him against the cage and dirty boxing. For some reason, with a record of 17-10, some people still think Couture will get a title shot, and even win it.
C'mon, don't tell me you didn't see this one coming.
Every fighter has a breaking point, where they lose a fight and never be the same. Couture's breaking point actually happened long ago vs. Liddell in 2005, but he kept on fighting.
When Couture lost to Liddell, he was already 41 or so, so I applauded him for making it so far. He decided to keep on fighting, so he went on to beat a nobody, and proceeded to lose to Liddell again. By now I was sure he was going to retire, but nooo, he kept on fighting.
He beat Sylvia which actually seemed mildly impressive, and went on to beat Gonzaga. Finally he lost to Lesnar, and went on to lose against Big Nog in his first ever decision loss in his career. He looked very unimpressive, even failing to take him down, which isn't hard to do against Nog.
Against Vera it was clear that his time was up, he failed to even take him down once. All he did was press Vera up against the cage and pray, which miraculously worked. He took home the UD and now will fight against Mark Coleman.
Randy's time is long overdue. At least someone will probably retire once the fight between Couture and Coleman is over. Hopefully, there is no winner in that fight.
