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...
"Andrei, I hope training Florida is going well! Hopefully, somewhere in there you are at least enjoying the sun and the beaches with maximus and your lovely wife. Just checking to see if any news on your next fight. Until then Onward To Victory…"
"Hello, glad to see you enjoying the sunshine! I just wish it would shine a little in Virginia. I'm sick of nasty weather! I loved the video. It was great seeing you training and you didn't look out of shape to me. Just a little out of…"
"Good morning,Andrei How has your training been going? When is your next fight going to be? Are going to have a video chat soon? It would be nice to hear from the Pitbull! We love and miss ya!! GOD BLESS U !"
