Last thing I heard was that he might be leaning towards retirement. His last 2 fights were essentially gimmes for him and it would be a nice way for him to go out.M.Ed. Ex Phys

he has a lot going on in his life with Xtreme couture and a ton of media stuff and other entertainment. He might as well retire. That or fight chuck or tito. I would hate to see him fight someone like Bones Jones.

I could see randy fighting rampage it page loses to lyoto....or even rich franklin...he knows he doesnt have a title run chance..but he is up for interesting matchups/ good fights..plus with himmaking close to a million per fight with papy per view bonuses and such..i can see him stepping in for atleast one more.imo.

I have all the respect in the world for Randy. He is a legend and an all time great. All that said I hope he retires. Personally, I have ZERO interest in seeing Randy fight anyone that this point. When I seen how easily Nog hurt him Im knew it was over. Nog hasnt hurt anyone standing but was repeatedly dropping Randy. He put up a valiant fight but he just doesnt have it. Had Vera still had a killer instinct he would have finished Randy. Randy should have lost that fight as well, crappy decision.

not saying randy is washed up. but its funny how guys like tito, wandy, jardine,chuck still talk about titles. i guess its their fighter spirit and marketing.

I think Randy is a bit more of a realist.

Plus Randy runs a pretty successful gym, so its not like if he retires from professional fighting he'll become a homebody. He'll probably be up in Xtreme Couture Helio Gracie style. Red Belt Greco Roman.

Like he doesnt like being hit? His training camp should involve duct tapeing him
to a wall in a room full of boxers.

I think this would be a great fight , either that or a Couture Jackson match up would also be a good sell . I would even like to see Couture and Ortiz go at it again , but then again the way Tito has been fighting that might be another gimme fight to Couture.
Randy is a great fighter and champion and if he does decide to retire like someone already stated he has a successful gym so he will be involved in the sport for the rest of his life. He will be on the UFC one way or the other with new fighters and ect.

Of course, he could fight Herschel Walker

Intellectually, Randy vs Machida is a one sided fight, leaning heavily toward Machida. However, a part of me would not be surprised if Randy pulled it off.

All that being said, Randy is a smart fighter, he'll be more cognizant of his specific strengths & limitations against a fighter like Lyoto then the average MMA fighter, so we'll see what kind of game plan he decides to go with.

Randy's style of wrestling is much more effective than Tito's.. I mean look at what Hamill did to Tito and I don't consider him upper-echelon by any means. Randy even controlled Brock when he weighed in at what.. like 220? If Randy wins this fight I say he should cash in his chips, but who knows. Randy said he'd only fight for an intriguing match-up and this definitely is one. Machida's obvsiously the favorite, but you like betting on upsets Randy's never that huge of a gamble.
