    There is a new rumor floating around the Internet regarding a possible light heavyweight clash between former UFC light heavyweight and heavyweight champion Randy Couture and the undefeated Lyoto Machida.
    The reports state that sources from within the Xtreme Couture camp have confirmed Couture's interest but at this point, it's just that.

    Any possibility of a fight between the UFC Hall-of-Famer and Machida would rely on the outcome of the Quinton Jackson vs. Keith Jardine light heavyweight fight at UFC 96.

    So you already have a built in an excuse for when Machida destroys Couture? If he is an old man and that will be used to discredit the great Machida, then I would rather the fight not happen.

    If Jackson were to win as he is expected, he would automatically get a title shot against Rashad Evans at UFC 100 if both fighters are healthy. That would mean that Machida gets left out of the title picture once again and would pave the way for a fight with Couture.

    I like this fight a lot. Could be a very technical fight and one where we get to see what Machida can to against a guy that's not injured, (Tito Ortiz), just getting his feet wet in the game, (Silva) or way over rated and one dimensional, (Sokujou sp?). Sure Randy is nearly eligible for social security, but the old man still has a fight or two left in him. If this fight happens and Machida can win, I've got him in my top 3 at LHW and deserves a shot at Rampage.
    I see that you already have an excuse handy for after Machida destroys Couture.

    Machida can only fight who they put in front of him. He has smashed everyone they have told him to fight, so dont put an old man in front of him. Give him Rampage and he will wax rampages ass as well. I am sure you will have another excuse ready for rampage, maybe he will not take his training camp seriously again.

    I must be missing what the excuse is. Randy is a very tough test for Machida. If you can't see that, you just don't know MMA. I'm going to stop giving you the correct pics, Hendo, Little Nog, Kongo, CB, Kimbo, etc. and we'll see how well you do when you don't have me to ask about the match ups.

    I already stated, if Machida can beat Randy, I'll consider him top 3 and in line for a title shot. if he can't beat Randy, what excuse do you need? Randy is nearly 50 years old, surely he can beat the old man. If not, it will prove he's not championship caliber at this time. No excuses what so ever. Lets just hope the Dragon takes this fight and finally showcases what he has against elite competition.
    Lets go Brent!

    Just wanted to make sure you acknowledged that a win over coutue would be very impressive. Couture isa great fighter but machida will simply be too much for him.

    Don't think I'm not keeping track of all you failed predictions. Lesnar over mir, hughes over gsp, hughes over alves, penn over gsp, rampage over griffin, kongo over herring. Occasionally you have offered some insightful picks but your inconsistency is your problem.

    That's a short list of wrong picks there PJ. And take GSP/Penn off the list. When it came to fight time, I let everyone know I was going with GSP. The rest prove I'm human.

    Back on topic, I've already got the winning gameplan for Randy. I'll share with you via email.
    Lets go Brent!
