12:04 PM ET 05.01 | UFC Hall of Famer Randy "The Natural" Couture left it all in the cage tonight, but it wasn't enough to put away fellow former champion Lyoto "The Dragon" Machida. Machida knocked Couture out cold in a finish very reminiscent of his friend Anderson Silva's February dispatching of Vitor Belfort. Once he collected himself from the mat, Couture told Joe Rogan that this was indeed his last appearance in the cage, saying, "No, you're not gonna see me again. This is it," before exiting the cage to roaring applause.

Wow this is the king of spam threads.

Randy is the man. I won't forget the fight against Tim Sylvia, who just seemed like such a badazz at the time. Randy manhandled him, at age 44 or whatever it was. What a great example of never thinking you're too old. Of course, now, he's too old. But he did have a great run, great career.

what they did not tell you here is that when Dandy Randy left the cage two small terds fell out of his shorts and the Rogan stepped on one of them!!! Sooo then Rogain was pissed and he climbed the fence and threw the other one in Mandys direction.
