As usual, Randy Couture found a way to just win. It wasn't pretty, but it sure was effective. Did anyone else feel like they were watching a replay of Tim Sylvia vs. Brandon Vera? It was basically the same deal. Sylvia kept Vera pressed against the fence for the vast majority of the fight. Vera managed a takedown, even passed to side control, but couldn't manage to do much with it. The outcome would be different, of course, given that Vera managed a knockdown against Couture and never really damaged Sylvia, but the gameplan and execution were basically the same. The funny thing is that conventional wisdom after the Sylvia fight said that Vera was just too small to deal with the big heavyweights. Now that he's dropped to 205, he succumbed to the exact same tactic. Seems like the issue is not so much size but strategy.
