Plenty of excitement is in store for Toronto, Canada, on the coming 30th, when UFC 129 is set to take place. GRACIEMAG.com editor Marcelo Dunlop is already on location and set to bring first-hand coverage. Two title fights will cap off the night, with Georges Saint-Pierre defending his welterweight title against Jake Shields and José Aldo fighting to protect his featherweight strap from Mark Hominick. There’s another fight causing a stir too, though, in the showdown between former champions Randy Couture and Lyoto Machida.
Couture is riding a three-fight win streak, while Lyoto lost on his last two outings, to Maurício Shogun and Quinton Jackson.
“Machida has a unique style and I respect him a lot; it’s the kind of fight I like. I feel his fight with Rampage had a controversial ending; Lyoto won that fight,” says Couture.
And “The Natural” has left one question hanging in the air: will this be his farewell fight or with the 47-year-old Randy have it in him for yet another title fight? The definitive answer to that question will probably come after his showdown with Machida. What are your thoughts on that, dear reader?
