[VIDEO] UFC 148: Randy Couture Dissects Silva vs. Sonnen 2
STUDIO MMA, RIVERSIDE, CA – Former UFC heavyweight and light heavyweight champion and Hall of Famer, Randy Couture, sat down with MMAFighting’s Luke Thomas to take a closer look at his former Team Quest teammate Chael Sonnen’s rematch against UFC middleweight champion, Anderson Silva. The two fighters will meet at UFC 148 on July 7 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
It’s kind of odd,” Couture told MMA Fighting at his Xtreme Couture facility recently in Las Vegas, Nevada. “Normally I would say that the onus is on the guy who won the first fight to anticipate the changes the loser is going to make and get the same outcome.
If you look at Anderson and Chael, Anderson won by triangle choke with two minutes left. He didn’t really win the fight. He got his ass whooped – literally – for four-plus rounds. But it’s almost like he was the guy that won. He wants it to go the same minus the triangle.”
