Default To all UFC fans out there...

Did anyone is a fan of Randy Couture here? He is one of the best fighter in UFC, and I nominated him on ESPN as one of the greatest athlete. The contest is called "Who's Now" where you guys can nominate fpr the greatest athlete. http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2...whosnow/070611 let's nominate Randy Couture, he really deserves to be on that list!

I like Randy, but I don't really like his style of fighting that much. I'm glad he came out of retirement though.

Yeah me too... I like him, and I am glad that he came back from retirement to prove once again that he is the greatest champion.
So I guess he deserves to be on the list of the greatest athletes on ESPN, I actually nominate him, and I guess he can make it!

So guys..... Who belongs to you list?
Do you think if there is an MMA fighter to be included on the list it should be Randy Couture?

I've only been following MMA for about a year or two so I really missed most of Randy's fights. I really can't comment on how good he is. Although, snatching the title at his age is a feat. Fedor Emelineko is one of the most dominant fighters I've seen so he might be near the top of my list. But I really don't have any one fighter that is my favorite. There are plenty of people I don't like though.

Huh! Okay... but you do like Couture huh! Anyway I did nominate him on ESPN's "Who's Now" and I guess he can make it to the list, he really deserves to be included there. He did a good job inside and even outside the octagon, he alsoget's involves in TV appearanceslike TV commercials and movie appearance, alsohe had lots of endorsements.

He's as good a person as you could get to represent the sport of MMA so I think I'd agree that he should be nominated.

Yeah indeed! Randy is a good person, he is revered by many because of what he does outside the ring also. It has been said many times, he is a great ambassador for the sport and represent MMA.
Randy is well spoken, he did lots of interviews than any other MMA fighters.

and that's why ufc used to be awesome, no weight classes. If you're an ultimate fighter, you're an ultimate fighter... you should be able to take on any weight.

Hmm, I don't know. I'd really like to see Iceman and Lesner (formerly of WWE, which is totally fake garbage) slug it out. I would give my right eye for it.
