Randy Couture Talks Game Plan For Lyoto Machida at UFC 129

New, 63 comments

"Lyoto Machida is going to get on his bike and try to get you to chase him."

"The goal for me to cut him off, to force him to fight me; to not let him run around and avoid two rounds of fighting (like the Rampage Jackson fight). I think he'll engage, I'm going to force him, hopefully with the cage, to play a little clinch game and pin him against that and make him work from there. That's always been a strength of mine."

"The key is to cut him off and for me to get my hands on him, though he's not easy to catch up with."
