Randy Couture Dropping Weight to 205 for Lyoto Machida?

– According to a recent interview with On Portland, Randy Couture is interested in dropping to 205 and facing UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Lyoto Machida. Couture stated the following…

“[Machida’s] got a very unique style – it’s very unorthodox. He stays pretty true to his karate background and makes it work for him. He’s got great footwork, great balance. He’s very patient. I think he’s terrific,” said Couture of Machida after flashing a coy smile when the subject initially came up. I could certainly go back down to 205 if that was something (the UFC) wanted to see. I’d be interested in competing against him. I think he’s a tremendous competitor and somebody I’d like to fight.”

    He’s got a better chance at 205 than at 225 trying to take on Lesnar, who probably weighs close to 285 by fight night.
