The legendary career of Randy Couture ended in highlight-reel fashion with an insane front kick knockout from "The Dragon," Lyoto Machida.

In his post-fight interview, Couture uttered perhaps his final words ever as a UFC fighter:

"This is it. I think the last time we had this conversation I had all my teeth.He’s a tremendous fighter. It felt like I was standing still out there, and he caught me with a great kick. The fans have always treated me great, but to go out on that ovation was very special."

UFC commentator Joe Rogan sent the Hall of Famer off with some touching words of his own:

"You are a remarkable human being and a great testament to this great sport. Thank you very much sir for everything you have done. Randy "The Natural" Couture, ladies and gentleman! One of the greatest that ever was!"

He's still my hero.
