    I'm not saying that randy is bad, but the whole reason he's been impressive is that he beat two heavyweights in the UFC after coming out of retirement.

    The guy is amazing for his age, but I still don't think Randy could last in the ring against top 10 HWs like Nog, cro cop, aleks, fedor or barnett again in a ring. I don't even think he could beat chuck again, or rampage or wanderlei for that matter.

    Do people really think he stands a chance against Fedor (especially in a ring, not a cage? where he has less weapons), or is the appeal that he's the only guy potentially capable of beating him, even if the odds are low?

    the fight is just there as an educational event for the masses. fedor is god, and randy is grossly overrated. I dont see randy making it out of the first round.

    Unfortunately I agree wholeheartedly .... Randy is a feel good story so I love routing for him , but after last night Im sorry for him.

    I disagree though with the OP that said he cant take Cro-Cop(out),Nog, Aleks, or Barnett.

    it has kind of lost it's appeal for me over the months...even a bit more i think after last night. i think arlovski or barnett are still good matchups for fedor

    Totally agree on both counts, cept I bet he could take Aleks and Nog. Aleks is just a wildcard and Nog he could just outwrestle for 5 rounds.

    I'm telling you guys he was ready to call out AA but as soon as 'Randy Couture' came out of his mouth everyone including his fucking translator prematurely ejaculated.

    I think that Randy has a very good chance at beating all those guys you listed, but your right he has little or no chance against Fedor, you have to do it just becasue....same reason Mike Tyson had to fight Leon Spinks, just to let the world know how good Fedor is

    randy's odds severely decrease in a ring.
    cant use the cage to pin his opponent up against it. :hs:

    in a cage he destroys crocop, wand, maybe nog, and stands a minute chance against fedor.

    lol that was so funny how BJM was basically trying to feed them each to say "i wanna fight fedor" but they each were like "uh i just wanna fight whoever is placed in front of me, everyone is a good fighter"

    Fedor would destroy AA

    AA just seems to timid and passive and Fedor would just push the pace to the point that AA makes a mistake and then its game over
