Couture disagrees with 'Rampage' decision

by Steve Cofield | source:

"They see some superficial things like Rampage moving forward the whole time in that fight and they attribute that to him winning those rounds," Couture told Paul Howard of ESPNRadio1100 in Las Vegas. "And technically that's not what was happening. It sucks to be a fighter and have that happen to you."

Randy is 100% correct.Hopefully MMA judges are all retired MMA fighters and MMA trainers in a few years, not TMA guys and boxing guys.

 Does that mean "in the judges eyes Machida was being elusive with counterstrikes so he obviously won" would apply to every other decision Machida got? How about there's more to a fight than "moving foward or moving backwards" and there's a good chance Machida just didn't convincingly win?

Rampage vs Randy? Big money fight and an "interesting" challenge for Randy.

In the judges eyes Randy was the fighter who was moving forward so he obviously won.

 I did a rather thorough write up on each round of that fight, so although I disagree with parts of your assessment, mainly the amount of offense Randy had, my argument was hinged upon the "he lost all 3 rounds vs. Vera" comment.
