Much speculation has fallen on who will be the following challenger for the winner of Saturday’s match.

Earlier this week, in an interview with MMA Weekly Radio, Randy Couture stated, “I assume inside the subsequent 6 months I’d like to be in line to fight the winner of the Machida/Shogun battle.” He continued, “I am heading to be in Montreal to watch that fight very attentively. I assume it’s heading to be excellent.”

Even though essentially any battle involving Couture will offer tickets, one particular has to question how practical his statement is.

Never ever really should a win be assumed by any fighter, but in the situation of Couture’s next fight, it would take a dash of naivety and hopeless optimism to think James Toney has a solid opportunity of winning. In spite of his amazing boxing document, Toney is 41 decades old and has never ever fought a single MMA fight.

If Couture does get via Toney, as most anybody would predict, would that win be adequate to earn him a title shot?

In the very last four a long time, “The Natural” has fought only twice at light heavyweight. Most lately a 2nd-spherical submission over a half-dead Mark Coleman, and prior to that a controversial choice above Brandon Vera. With Vera’s latest initial-spherical destruction at the fingers of Jon Jones, Couture’s choice win is far from elite-level things.

3 weeks following this weekend’s fight, yet another light heavyweight principal function will headline UFC 114, as Quinton Jackson and Rashad Evans square off in a much-hyped clash of former champions. The UFC is hoping for massive numbers from this celebration, and this battle will probably be billed as a title eliminator to add far more that means to the match.

The winner of Jackson/Evans will be a a lot more deserving contender, not to mention a significantly a lot more unsafe opponent. There would be a excellent possibility for a rematch because Rua stopped Jackson back in 2005, and Machida stopped Evans final yr.

There is no doubt that Couture is a legend and a particular fighter, but he has received more undeserved title shots than any person in the heritage of the organization.

In 2003, after currently being stopped in again-to-again fights at heavyweight, Couture was instantly supplied a shot at the light heavyweight title towards Chuck Liddell.

In 2007, Couture was offered a shot at the heavyweight title following a 2nd-spherical knockout to Liddell at light heavyweight and a yr-lengthy layoff.

I do not assume Couture will get a shot at the Machida/Rua winner, but I would not be shocked to see him following in line right after the Jackson/Evans winner. Soon after all, who else would get the shot?

Antonio Rogerio Nogueira is probably the subsequent best light heavyweight, but he desires one more win over a large-title opponent just before they would wish to sell a large battle involving him. His upcoming match towards Jason Brilz isn’t heading to cut it.

After beating Toney, I’d desire Couture to be matched towards Nogueira to figure out the No. one contender. That battle would have a lot of evident narratives for instance, Couture’s reduction to Rogerio’s older brother, Antonio Rodrigo, previous year at heavyweight. Not to point out they are the two legends of the sport.

Couture is a particular fighter and is utilised to acquiring special possibilities, but I just don’t see this one particular happening right after wins about Coleman and Toney.Check out UFC 113 Free|(Check out UFC 113 On-line)Check out UFC 113 Rematch | (Observe UFC 113) Rematch
