pick his nxt opponent..
a rematch with Tito would be stupid..
going along that line..
since Matt Hamill has won 5 in a row.. put the wrestlers in together..
I know that's not really a "novelty fight" but it would work..
Dana would look at it two ways.. Hamill could score the upset and gain even more marketability or Couture would prove he sstill can beat up n comers.. I know Hamill is up ther but he's not main event status in my opinion..
No "DeaF" jokes .. that's jus wrong.. O HOLD up.. i got a novelty fight.. wow..
ERASE what i jus said
bring in Batista from WWE in to fight Couture.. "the natural" would totally demolish the bruiser batista.. saying "bruiser" because of height n weight n mass"..
Batista has quit the wwe already and has been rumored to fight Bobby Lashley but Strikeforce doesn't want to pull the plug on the money..
Give Batista some money Dana .. watch Couture dominate him.. Couture has been quoted of saying he is not worried about the "title" anymore..
Batista hate 'm or love 'em would bring ratings.. even tho we would know the outcome of him n couture..
also, Couture n Dana would sh8t on thewwe

Thats dumber than signing Joe Johnson to a Max contract, Peachy. Dave is over 40, has NO legit fighting experience, and no amateur wresting experience to fall back on -like Bobby and Brock do.
Randy slaps Deacon Dave in a neck crank for the tap in 3 minutes- the first time that has worked since PRIDE.
Randy needs to fight. . . ..
we all have been waiting to see it since 2005. Cro-Cop wanted a title shot when he FIRST came to the UFC- and Randy might actually motivate him to get in the gym and do some leg squats.

Randy would massacre Cro Cop..
Randy is faster than Cro Cop and Cro Cop doesn't have the best wrestling there bud...
Batista would be Dana's 2nd freak show.. the Toney fight was highly entertaining.. Randy was beating the stew out of him. cranking that neck there BO hawk!
Batista is HUGE.. there no ifs ands or butts about it..
Batista would bring the wwe crowd with him. which is a pretty BIG one believe it or not.. So what if Batista doesn't have experience. he beat up Booker T.. that's saying something. lol
Batista vs Randy would hit the "novelty" part of this td a lil better as well..
UFC would have pimple faced teenagers calling for the ppv on their parents account.. screw Randy Orton.. meet Randy Couture.. lmao..
Hershel Walker is fighting isn't he?
not to your approval probably but NAMES mean something..
fights are fights.. one punch can do miracles sometimes..
Couture would love to get his hands on a WWE champion again.. Brock roughed him up!

"Hershel Walker is fighting isn't he"
Really? Thats who you bring out?Hershel? Is he a PPV draw? Does SF even HAVE PPV?
Check the numbers- The Walker fight did JACK SQUAT as far as ratings- by that Randy should fight KIMBO- who pulled better numbers on TV than Fedor did.
You claim that one punch means something- Cro-Cop knows this- Gonzaga just got cut by the UFC after getting a title shot by highlighting the Croatian a while back.
Toney was a legit athlete with legit skills.
Batista does not- why don't you put Dean Malenko out there with Nick Diaz while you are at it Peachy?
Not to mention Brock (Your Boy) didn't exactly throw Brock out there day 1- Brock did fight BEFORE hitting the UFC.
Cro-Cop is a novelty- I'd rather see a fight with SOME skills- ala the Pride Matchups, you want so see the WWE- then watch Spike on Mondays.
Finally, Booker T won that fight- look it up.

Toney was a legit athlete with legit skills
Toney was a legit athlete but he DIDN'T have legit mma skills there Petey Pablo
Dean Malenko vs Nick Diaz.. lmao.. good 1.. seriously..
how about Rey Mysterio vs Diego Sanchez? lmao
nah.. Batista would be a draw.. Toney was.. the WWE universe is pretty strong.. loook at Vince the billionaire..
Couture said he'd fight "novelty" fights.. Batista is ONE.. Randy isn't concerned with fighting grade A talent anymore..
Batista's size and popularity from WWE would entertain a new audience which Dana would love to have..
no Batista bombs..
Couture would take this 1.. Dana's had 1 freak(toney).. why not 2?

Bottom line- Randy is 87 years old- and he has to hit the gym for hours a day- and work out for hours a day and watch film for hours a day to get ready for ANY fight.
Thats why he's a HOFer, thats why he's still relevant LONG after people who were at the top of MMA at the same time he was winning his FIRST title back in 1972.
Do you think this is why he does this? This will give him a reward for all that work? Deacon Dave?
Lets be honest- his KID could beat Dave Batista.
Randy needs a REASON to put in all that work- other than Dana asks him too. He's DONE that. He wants "novelty" fights- in other words INTERESTING fights that will get his juices going.
- Dave Batista is not going to give Randy a reason to get out of bed- let alone work his combover for the press.
