I personally think this loss was nothing to be ashamed of and with one more fight on his current contract with UFC it will be interesting to see who he will be matched up with... perhaps Mir? Anyhow, retirement seems too extreme after the fight he put up against - a really on form Big Nog. Escaping two fight finishing submissions, real big hits, attacking and moving forwards throughout the three rounds it was, for me, exciting throughout from start to finish. I personally wanted Nogueira to win so was thrilled with the outcome but after that fight I have much more respect for Randy and am looking forward to see his next one. On the other hand, perhaps Mr Arlovski's marketing and promo team could advise Randy if he does take up retirement as Andrei is now even more of a 'God' after his last two knockouts. Oh and great reply by Dark Hadou! LOL. Bit harsh but everyone has their oppinion.
46 year old Couture signed a new 28 months deal with UFC. However, I don't think he will win the title again. He is past his prime as Noguiera is. I just hope that Randy will not become like Chuck Liddell...

I was watching his old UFC fight from when he was still working his way up to the belt. He was aggressive and had that killer instinct, I was thinking that's exactly what he needed to start showing again to start knocking fools out like he used to.…See More
