Default UFC 105 COUTURE vs VERA

Did anyone watch this on spike? While couture is great and future hall of famer, IMHO he should have lost the fight. I'll give him the first round, but the next 2 vera clearly won. From a bizness perspective, I understand why couture "won", but come on. Was the fix in or what?

I didn't see it, only read about it and based on what I read, it sounded like Couture lost a very close fight. I don't buy that judges are crooked and paid off by the UFC, it would be the end of organization once that leaked. I will assume that the judges are the best at what they do and either they got this one right or they made a mistake but an honest one.

Couture knows he is not big or strong enuff for heavy weight division; lesnar showed that. He admitted that during the post fight interview. He still is a big draw with a huge following. So it kind of makes sense for him to be a contender in the light heavy weight scene. When the winner was announced, Vera was shocked, even Couture looked surprised. After what has happened in NBA and other sports, I wouldn’t be too surprised. Besides, Its all business.

Yea, I was little suprised he won myself, but hey it's Randy.. Anything is possible with him.. I like Randy, but come on man, retire and stay retired..

I can't imagine who he his going to fight next.. He has 5 fights on his current contract left..

He may jump back up to HW, since Brock is out for a while, and maybe for good.. There is talks about putting the HW belt back up for contension between two new contenders.. If that's the case, I can see randy jumping back up..

I don't see Randy beating many, if any more 205's, the same can be said for the HW class as wel tol. But, If he wants a belt, I feel HW might be a better chance for him, that is if Brock is indeed out and the belt goes up for grabs..
