Fedor vs. Couture: Super Fight or Mismatch?

Fronted by Luke Thomas.

It had been just about two years since Fedor Emelianenko fought a legitimate opponent.  That is, until he destroyed former UFC HW champ Tim Sylvia in 36 seconds this past Saturday night.  During the post fight interview, Fedor was asked who he would like to face next and of course he named Randy Couture.

Couture is a legend in this sport, he first man to become a champion in two different weight classes.  At 44 years of age he came out of retirement to defeat the same Tim Sylvia via unanimous decison.  Couture has always seemed to defy the odds in terms of age and ability, but that will not be the case against Fedor. 

I don’t even think Couture has earned the right to face Fedor. Most people have Couture ranked #3 at HW and I have a problem with that.  Considering that Couture decisioned Sylvia and stopped a Gabriel Gonzaga who proved to be overhyped after his win over Cro Cop.  I don’t see how Couture can be ranked at #3 when he only has one win against a top 10 HW since his first retirement.  Whereas, he was stopped in 2 of his last three fights at LHW prior to those fights.
