    Defining fights: Randy Couture



    Randy Couture was born in 1963, which makes him just 4 years younger than my father, and in a couple weeks will be fighting as the main event in the most prestigious mma organization of all time. That in and of itself is enough to respect the man's tenacity and work ethic, but there is more to him than his refusal to let age destroy him as an athlete. He's made a career of defying the odds and not just beating, but destroying foes that are overwhelming favorites. He has done it time and time again to fighters that are both much younger and significantly larger.

    His whole career, even as a heavyweight, he has been smaller than most light-heavyweights (and some middleweights), and still he fought 300 pound men that look like they escaped from the zoo. He never had size, strength, or speed advantages, he always just relied on gameplanning, willpower, hard work, and skill. The man has balls so big that they have their own strong gravitational pull. His whole career, he has been put into many situations that everyone other than himself viewed as being dangerous, and in almost all of those times....

    While reading I noticed this:
    From this article:
    He took 2 headkicks, the first one being flush to the dome, and instead of valiantly relearning how to walk and talk years later like most people would if they had that kind of brain trauma, he stayed in control and was able to finish with strikes on the ground, despite the fact that his arm had been broken by blocking one of the kicks.
    From cracked.com's "Top 8 'Oh ****' moments from mma"
    Randleman brought Fedor up in a perfect arc, jumped off his feet, and trebuchetíed the weight of both of them directly on the point of Fedorís head. It was like he was trying to make dinosaurs extinct again. When wheelchair salesmen watch it, their eyeballs turn to dollar signs.
    But instead of bravely learning to walk again years later, Fedor swept him, got side control, punched him in the head 18 times, jumped to north-south, and locked in a kimura.
    Is this a regularly used phrase or has it just been ripped off?

    It is not a unique phrase.

    Hmm, apparently I don't spend enough time reading about head trauma then...
    Otherwise, an interesting read but not brilliantly written. I would have thought his Lesnar fight would deserve a mention, he doesn't have to win for it to be defining.

    That article didn't invent the phrase, but the rest of the linked-to article reads like poor Cracked knockoff anyway, and the guy's signature is from the same Seanbaby article.
