Goodbye, Girls of Summer... (47 Pics)

In Honor of Randy Couture’s Return to the UFC…

They say if you love something, let it go. If it comes back, it will beat up Brock Lesnar. If it doesn’t, it will be tied up in court battles for the rest of its viable career. At least I think that’s what they say. I don’t listen very well. Regardless, today’s announcement that Randy Couture will return to the UFC to defend his heavyweight title in November has us all a little amped. So amped, in fact, that it’s hard to focus on any other MMA-related stories right now. So let’s just enjoy a look at some of Captain America’s greatest moments and consider what the future might hold. After the jump, a nice training montage with a soundtrack that will really get your heart pumping. Turn up the volume now and thank us later.

What is got over the Devil’s back is spent under his belly.

It's crazy listening to you all say how old and weak Randy is, I have never doubted the guys ability and his training regime is second to none. He has experience and a shit load of skill. Lesnar is a beast and to be honest does remind me of DONKEY KONG, but I dont think he has the arsenal to deal with Randy. One other thing no way does lesnar deserve this fight, 2 fights and now a title shot, think the crooked ways of boxing are creeping into the UFC, and sadly if that happens then a lot of fans will leave the ranks. Anyhow randy for the win, he'll be the barrell that crushes donkey kong

Mir was a joke till he got lucky against a rookie mistake & had the benefit of stupid ref standups. Now you are all hugging his nuts like he is the greatest ever. Tho truth be told he regained some cool points with me from taking that Brock beating. Still nowhere near enough to warrant his interim title shot. Why is no one freaking out over that? In 2 years since his accident he was 2-2 and his wins were over Hardonk and Dan Christison... wow. Then got lucky against Brock in his 2nd fight ever... how does that deserve a title shot? And you all question why Brock is getting a shot of his own?!?

The only way I see Couture winning is by Rope-A-Dope. Get Brock into the championship rounds and pray Brock gets tired. If Brock goes all out like he did with Mir he will get tired out. If he fights smart like he did with Herring he won't.

Mir got lucky against borck flat the fuck out this isn't even in question you can say what you want and mir can do whatever he needs to do to forget how he was almost heath harring part 1... Brock got hasty and make an error he paid for it things are a bit different now..

@ Travesty

No, actually, those three things are why Frank Mir beat Brock with a basic leg submission that even I can do.

Exactly the scenario that you were giving me was happening, but Frank's patience, stemming from his experience, self-discipline and skill enabled him to win the fight.

Power and size are ALOT in a fight, but Mir beat Lesnar and Fedor beat Hong Man Choi despite an overwhelming size and strength difference. Don't count the smaller guy out.

the randy vs fedor fight is not even that interesting. barnett or arlovski vs fedor is FAR MORE INTERESTING.

randy lost twice by tko to ricco and josh at hw -> 5years later comes back and beats an injured sylvia and overated gonzaga is completley inactive for a whole damn year, then comes back to defend his 'title' against someone who is 1-1 in ufc and who, according to randy himself at the adam corolla show, shouldnt even be considred a contender by beating herring.

he is nothing but a sentimental 'capatin america - that man is my hero - american hero' slogan at this time. his comments about fedor needing to come to him to prove that he is no1 hw is NONSENSE.
he will regret his hybris after nog chokes him out.

fedor would do to him what he did to goodridge.

Hey Karma that quote was from me! You just made me feel important, thanks for the self esteem boost.

I stand by my quote, and I'll add that there are 5 heavyweights that could pose a challenge for Lesnar (imo), and they are (in order of biggest challenge): Fedor, Nogeira, Barnett, Arlovski, and Frank Mir.
Jeff- September 2, 2008 at 1:55 pm
Randy is going to lose. Randy's only strength was his wrestling, and he cannot outwrestle Brock Lesnar. A 265lb GSP would be a fair matchup for Lesnar in the wrestling department, not poor old (literally, old) 220lb Randy Couture.

Dana is so happy about this because he finally found a way to make an assload of money off of Randy Couture's final loss in the UFC.

""QUOTE:I love Randy to bits and pieces of little red, white and blue Captain America nuggets, and I hate Lesnar like Tong Po in Kickboxer (that dude was just kicking the damn building down! Shit-your-pants time) but is it wishful thinking to believe that Randy isn’t going to get carried out of there? I think the only way Randy wins this one is if somebody slices Brock’s Achilles tendons right before the fight. But I’ll be hoping and praying that he pulls this one off though.""

ROFL, Tong Po scared me as a child I was so happy when Van Dam put it to him *SIGH* You are so right the deck seems incredibly stacked against Randy Size,Muscle and Just all around evidence seems like he's gonna lose.. Though i would love HONESTLY to see him submit Brock because where that is a loss it's still not a bad loss it's a championship match against Randy Coture.. and for you to say nogueira is the champion is once again just an all out Ignorant thing to say.. Nogueria would get ass fucked by Brock Lesnar and Before the fight ever happens im calling it now Nogueria loses Submission or Judges card to Brock lesnar.. Hate the mother fucker all you want but Like stated before he is a BIG MOTHER FUCKER I have a Quote from someone on a previous UFC Article about Brock vs Herring you can take his word for it if you don't trust mine.. it doesn't look good for randy.. I am still so torn..

QUOTE: "Lesnar is a BAD MAN. Don’t even get in the cage with that motherfucker without a black belt in jiu-jitsu. There is no such thing as out-wrestling him, tiring him out, or pounding him into a TKO. You godda knock his ass out cold or submit him, plain and simple. That punch was the best freakin’ punch I’ve ever seen, I don’t care if it didn’t knock him out. Did you see the way Lesnar tried to spear him afterwards? That was scary, if he connected he coulda broke some ribs." - Random guy

honestly why the fuck is randy even talking about fighting fedor when i dont think he could even beat nogueira ,not even in his prime. Randys overrated in my opinion i could think of a shit load of heavy weights that would smash him he beat an injured sylvia and broke gonzagas nose with an illegal headbutt and it still took him 2 more rounds to finish him and gonzaga was up right away ,pretty much he beat an injured tim sylvia and won the gonzaga fight with an illegal head butt. Lesnars going to win whats couture gonna do on his back get his face broken like he did with ricco rodriguez .Nogueira is the real ufc champ til he loses in my opinion.
littleO- September 2, 2008 at 11:09 am
i don't know what to think about all of this crazy shiiiiiiiiiiiiit! I do hope Randy wins though. Brock is a big, bad dude. It would be sweet if Randy whoops his ass, and then Fedor!!!
sol- September 2, 2008 at 10:08 am
As much as i like Brock Lesnar i dont see him winning, I give it to couture in the championship rounds.

Doesn't this whole thing just put Randy Couture right back where he was a year ago though? If he wins both fights, he is still champ and if he loses then the Fedor fight isn't as promotable.
Derly- September 2, 2008 at 9:09 am
I'm rooting for Randy...

But can you imagine what a guy like Lesnar could do if he caught a submission and Randy went balls out and didn't tap. Brock would BREAK him.

You mouth breathing Lesnar fans are so out of touch. Bigger and stronger is definitely what Brock has going for him but that is it. What can Randy do to Brock you say. He could crack his dome with his far superior striking for one. Brock will not be able to take down Randy like he did Heath or Mir. Randy could very likely submit Brock while wrestling with him. Randy is going to negate all of Brocks best attributes and pick him apart. Brock will be great but not at this point. Brock is still a one dimensional fighter albeit one who can tear up journeymen heavyweights. So what does it mean if Randy wins? Does he get to leave the UFC and fight on his own terms then? What the fuck does this mean for big nog is he just ass out if Lesnar wins and becomes champ? The UFC is getting crazy this year. Anything seems likely to happen. Did anyone notice that The spider fought at 206 when crushed Irvin. A serious what if is could Silva hold HW,LHW and the middle weight title all at the same time. I doubt White would let him because it would cut into how many title fights he could have per year.
Travesty- September 2, 2008 at 4:41 am
TO WANNABE... SKILL EXPERIENCE AND SELF DISCIPLINE GO OUT THE WINDOW WHEN MONSTER LIKE BROCK IS HOLDING YOU DOWN A PUNCHING YOU IN THE IN FACE AND YOU CAN GET UP. JUST ASK HEATH HEARING WHO IS BIGGER AND STRONGER THEN RANDY IS. THIS FIGHT IS ONLY HAPPENING BECAUSE DANA WHITE WANTS TO MAKE RANDY PAY FOR NOT HONORING HIS CONTRACT. I HOPE THE PAYDAY IS WORTH THE ASS WHOOPING HE WILL UNDOUBTINGLY RECEIVE

"""QUOTE : Anyone can land a hard punch in this sport. Seems like Couture had Sylvia in the same spot Fedor did 30 seconds into their matches. Personally, I’d rather watch a 5 round thrashing (with a smile on his face) over a quick punch right into a submission attempt any day. I guess I pay more attention to the fight rather than the outcome. And to compare Couture/Lesnar to fucking Bobo the clown and Shamrock, are you serious? GIVE ME WHAT YOU ARE SMOKING!! Lesnar and Couture will have an all out war. Lesnar may not be deserving of a title shot and as much as I dislike his mouth, this is a great matchup. And Lesnars comments, ” fuck fedor”, he’s just the guy arrogant enough to call fedor a p@ssy and instigate him right into the UFC. I love it……now seriously, pass that shit over here"""

So very well said..You seriously gonna bring sylvia into this? Wow so did coture beat him? Oh thats right he did beat him.. and your point is? Theres more then just the out come however if this guys gonna mention the outcome.. It was the same they both won.. How long ago did coture fight him.. Seen him fight Gonzaga? I did.. and it was an amazing fight and fun to watch... Coture vs Brock I am so torn honestly and I don't like predicting this but if Coture doesn't Knock him the fuck out or submit him this could be very Painful and agonizing process but with the time you never Know he is a legend. I am just so damn torn.. as a real MMA fan and someone who looks behond the win and pays attentions to the fighters.. I am truly torn.
BROCKSMAAASH- September 2, 2008 at 3:16 am
I call bullshit on anyone who claims they are not gonna watch this fight. You know you want to, you know you will. I've said it before I'll say it again, as soon as Brock steps in the cage he's got a good chance to win the fight - skills or no skills. BROCK SMAAASH!

p.s.
On the second video all I could think about was the South Park episode where they play that song about montages. "Ya gotta have a montage!" I don't remember the whole thing but it was funny.

p.p.s
The posting too quickly thing is the downfall of this website. Please fix.
BungaBunga- September 2, 2008 at 2:14 am
fucking bullshit...i was looking forward to going to the fight in portland...just fucking bullshit...is the ufc gonna schedule an event here in portland or we gonna have to wait years? fucking dana white is a bitch...no longer will i order fights anymore...just gonna download them so the ufc doesnt get my money anymore...fucking posting too quickly? this is my first fucking post...
The Bloc- September 2, 2008 at 2:09 am
lmao i knew this news was big, but i wasnt expecting this bitchin fest in the comments...ok i'm lying i was totaly expecting it.

as for the fight, i'm a huge Randy Couture fan(see, i can even write his name correctly) but i'm a bit scared for him....i really hope he'll win, but i have no idea how he could...then again he's Randy Couture, let's all hope he'll find a crack in Lesnar's tank armor, cuz Lesnar is a dick IMO and he doesnt deserve a title shot just yet

Can someone explain to me what's gonna happen with Nogueira? I thought he was the new champion....i guess Interim means "champion until the real champion comes back and then you can go back in your closet and wait."
MMA Wannabe- September 2, 2008 at 1:22 am
Caps lock key off, please.

What advantage does he have over Brock? I dunno... maybe that whole skill, experience, self-discipline thing? Oh wait... that's three things. Three important things.
Travesty- September 2, 2008 at 1:07 am
I HONESTLY FEEL BAD FOR COUTURE. I HOPE HE DOESNT GET SERIOUSLY HURT. C,MON PEOPLE LETS NOT KID OURSELVES COUTURE WAS A GREAT HEAVYWEIGHT BUT WHAT ADVANTAGE DOES HE HAVE OVER BROCK. HES OUT WEIGHED BY 40 TO 50 POUNDS BROCK IS WHAT 12 OR 13 YRS YOUNGER. THERE IS NO WAY COUTURE CAN BEAT HIM. WHAT IS HE GONNA DO OUT WRESTLE HIM AND SLAM HIM LIKE HE DID CHUCK UMM... DONT THINK SO. BOTTOM LINE, BROCK IS BIGGER FASTER STRONGER! THIS GONNA BE TITO VS KEN ALL OVER AGAIN. "PUNISH HIM INTO RETIREMENT".
