Couture: Cain can't afford to play around with Bigfoot

 

UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture thinks UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez is the dominant figure in the division, but says he has to be careful with the giant Antonio 'Bigfoot' Silva.

"I feel like Cain is the guy to beat," Couture told MMAjunkie.com. "Even in his loss to Junior the first time, I was very surprised it went that way, and expected it to go a lot more like their second fight."

However, Couture concedes that Silva could take the title if his bigfist lands on Cain's jaw.

"You can't afford to play around with guys that size," Couture said. "Trust me. I know."

"(Silva) has to come out, close the distance and get on Cain, especially if he can knock him down or take him down and get on top of him. Establish a good top game, which if Cain wants to get up, he's probably going to be able to do that, which would force Silva to do it again. He's going to have be able to do it over and over in each and every round."

"I just think that athletically, Cain is just too much for him. (Silva) is dangerous. He's big, he's strong, and he can hit hard, and if Cain gets caught up in that kind of fight and wants to trade with him, it could be a surprise. But I think Cain is smart. I think he's going to have a game plan and do the appropriate thing he needs to do: implement the striking he has, but use wrestling to win that fight."

Too many of you just see the name Couture, draw a line in the sand and then take the opposite side. He said Cain is too much for Silva but he still better watch out. What the fuck is wrong with that?If you're going to be pissed, point your finger at the fuckers writing these misleading titles to suck you into NOT reading them.

Couture needs to STF! As usual he shoves his foot in his mouth.

I can't see Cain playing around during a game of tic-tac-toe, much less an MMA fight.

He may be retired but he could still thrash you, so you may want to stick with the "don't say anything you wouldn't say to his face" rule that makes people respectable posters.

Poor Randy's legacy is shot now that he is on the outs with the UFC.
