I am going with Randy over Tito.

Randy’s a former heavyweight, and will come in heavier, stronger.

I like Tito I like his attitude think he has come a long way from the ground and pound to become a more all around fighter

Tito vs. Randy is a real close call.
ko: don’t know if Couture will be heavier as Tito is huge for a light heavy, usually at 215 or so at fight time.

That said I think Randy has the edge in boxing and fighting from the clinch.

Then again I haven’t seen Couture KO anyone with punches, but Tito is real aggressive with his elbows and knees.

Tito will try to make him work off his back but he’ll have a helluva time taking Randy down and keeping him there.

Close fight but I think it’ll come down to who out-thinks the other and implements their strategy - in other words: Couture.

BTW Tito is gonna be on Leno tonight (Friday) showing some MMA moves

Sorry, by “tonight” I meant tomorrow :slight_smile:
Tito is on Jay Leno Friday night.

Just back from Asia so am missing a day somewhere.
