UFC 129 Results Recap: Lyoto Machida vs. Randy Couture

photo via MMA Weekly.

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida knocked out former multiple time champion Randy Couture in their UFC 129 bout.

What was the high spot of this fight?

Are you kidding? Lyoto Machida threw a jumping front kick that knocked Randy Couture out. Not really much debate here.

Where do these guys go from here?

Lyoto Machida has to be aiming for a rematch with Quinton Jackson or some other fight that gets him closer to a shot at the UFC light heavyweight championship that he lost to Mauricio Rua. He's going to need at least one more win before he gets another title shot, but this was a great first step.

As for Randy Couture? He finds something else to do. It's sad to see an icon retire, and even more sad to see him retire after being knocked unconscious and losing a tooth. But it's time for Randy to walk away from active competition.

Watch it now, later, or never?

A legend's last bout and a shocking and brutal knockout. Watch it now.
