Lyoto Machida Sends Randy Couture Into Retirement at UFC 129


If UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture sticks to his guns, UFC 129 in Toronto will have been the final fight of his career. The bout also serves as a resurgence of sorts for fellow former light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida.

The victory put Machida back on the winning track after having lost back-to-back bouts for the first time in his career.

Machida spoke about the fight, his strategy, and sending Randy Couture into retirement with another Blackhouse knockout kick.
