There's a difference between thinking someone would lose to someone else, and thinking someone is overrated. It's possible that Randy might never have been able to beat any of those guys, but his career literally shits on all of the guys you mentioned except Anderson's. That's not being overrated
Just the fact that we're now debating if he could of best cain tells me he's overrated. I respect what the man did, but some guys have him as a top 10 p4p all time, and I can pick a lot of guys I would back to beat him.
And really? Randy's career shits all over the guys I mentioned? Shogun and wand?

Randy Coutures nuts should be hung on by everyone based solely on the fact of his age, when he got into this sport and the fights he's won for a guy who should've been well past his prime.

His fight finder is a who's who of the MMA world and he's always in big fights.

Whats not to like about Randy...

People shitting on Randy, lol.

Randy have always been the underdog, but he almost always pull through. Remember Tim Sylvia?

There was someone that mentioned Brock Lesnar as well, which is a good point. If you guys even remember the fight, Randy was OUT-WRESTLING Lesnar at a 50lb+ disadvantage. Lesnar was already breathing hard late in round 1 while being hold onto the cage by Couture. He could possibly have won the fight, until he got clipped by the shot to the back of his ear.

Nothing is impossible in MMA. And to say a strategic fighter like Randy have NO chance against Cain is laughable imo.

Couture in his 30's was one of the best fighters ever. Cain would likely have beaten though.

I think Cain would have won if they fought.
