    I'd pick Fedor to destroy the old man, but it would be a fight fans have wanted to see since forever.

    In all honesty Couture probably will never come back, but coming out of retirement for a fight with Fedor would have to sound fun to both men.

    Fedor via being better a few years ago, then they both got older, and Fedor is still younger than Handy with the same skillset.

    I see Fedor doing damage though. Fedor has some left in the tank if he is fighting in the UFC. It's basically his last shot for another title run before he hangs the gloves up for good.

    Couture's already proven himself in the UFC and has held gold as well.

    The only thing is he has never faced Fedor before and that has to be appealing in some way.

    Fedor still trains, I'm pretty sure Randy does not. There's your answer.

    Fedor by KO or Sub. Hell, he might decide to take it easy on Randy to a decision win if they fought now. Randy is in his 50's.

    I'm saying later on don the road. Obviously not every one can roll off the couch and fight a UFC match like Mendes.

    I'm not saying this should happen right now, but I'm saying as true MMA fans, at least we'd be able to say Fedor vs Couture happened.

    Fedor would most likely beat up Randy, I don't think Randy could have beaten Fedor ten years ago either.

    Randy's too old now. Fedor by murder.

    Fedor via TKO/KO . Not sure why fans wanted this fight so bad. Randy get mauled , especially in the present day and w/o TRT

    Now that I disagree with. Fedor was scary dominating at one time, but Randy has fought the best of the best too.

    Couture would have a great chance at controlling the fight on the ground or in the clinch.

    Randy is 52...I would be shocked if they gave him a licence to fight.

    I meant training on a consistent basis.

    Let's not play dumb. If Randy was to help the UFC make more money and come out of retirement for a popular fight with Fedor for his retirement fight, that'd be something cool to do.

    Ken Shamrock is 76 and still getting licensed to fight...could happen.

    I wouldn't want to see a 52 year old Randy Couture fighting, i wouldn't want to see a 50 year old "anyone" fighting.

    So your telling me you wouldn't want to see Couture come out of retirement for one fight that would be Fedor's retirement fight?

    Something cool to do? Would it be cool to get Royce Gracie while we're at it? Randy is in his fifties, dude.

    50 y/o Randy without TRT would lose to Schaub.
