Couture vs Belfort: Part III
They've officially signed to fight on August 21st.
The first time they met Couture owned a steroid inflated Belfort like a little biitch, leaving him gasping and exhausted in the middle of the ring.
The last time they met Belfort had lost more than a few pounds and one sister. Belfort got off a lucky punch that cut Couture and the fight had to be stopped early denying me the simple pleasure of witnessing Vitor Belfort get pimp slapped by a guy old enough to be his dad. Now the UFC has signed these two for a rematch at MGM.
If I had to guess, I would say the winner is going to fight Chuck Liddell.

Reverse punch Kiaii!!!

I think Belfort will have an advantage in stand-up until it gets to the clinch range, then I think Couture will have the advantage.
I think couture will also have the advantage on takedowns and defending takedowns.
On the ground I think Belfort will be better on his back than Couture, but if Couture gets on top, that's where I think Belfort will stay.

I'll be interested in watching this one. My JJ Bias makes me go for Belfort."You realise the transformations give a man enough strength to destroy a truck with his bare hands!?

Vitor, easily.Now we all know to respect Randys standup and to pace yourself cause TKOing randy is hard.The cat is out of the bag.
Vitor will hold back and win a long boring match, or randy will look to GnP and although he may get the takedown, Belfort has severaly underated ground.He was all over Ricco in the ADCC.
Randy has always been suceptible to subs.His only chance is to cut vitor as he is pinned to the fence.Vitor has a couple ways he could win.

I want this to be a good fight... But if Vitor does what Strong machine mentioned, "hold back and win a long boring match", I will be very ANGRY. However, pretty much any fight between these two should be better than their last fight."Prison is for rapists, thieves and murderers.

I would never ever bet against Couture. My guess: complete control and extended beatdown by Couture.There are no wrong threats, only wrong answers. (Strategy game truism)
