"This is going to be great for Lyoto. To become a legend, you've got to defeat a legend. And Couture is one for sure. I know Lyoto will get there a day and this bout is very important for this. It'll be a big honor for us to match against Randy. It's a step to be given by Lyoto to become a legend and I am sure this is going to happen."
Lyoto Machida's manager Ed Soares seems to think that if his fighter can defeat the legendary Randy Couture he will effectively get the rub that one would think would go with such an achievement. However, there are many that fall on the other side of the fence. Some say "The Natural" has overstayed his welcome in the UFC, and if the Brazilian were to defeat him, it wouldn't say much for the former light heavyweight champion. The Karate master has fallen on hard times as of late, what with losing his belt to "Shogun" Rua before ending up on the wrong end of a split decision against "Rampage" Jackson. Is "Captain America" just the prey "The Dragon" needs? And if Machida wins, are you ready to anoint him as a legend in MMA? Thoughts, Maniacs, if you don't mind.
