Late Round Flurry: Why a loss to Couture shouldn’t cost Machida his job

Former UFC light-heavyweight champ Lyoto ‘The Dragon’ Machida (16-2) is on a two-fight losing streak.  In the UFC, that usually means you’re a loss away from being cut.

After gaining a controversial judge’s decision against Maurício ‘Shogun’ Rua at UFC  104, Machida was knocked out in a rematch at UFC 113 in Montreal.   He then lost a close split-decision to Quiton ‘Rampage’ Jackson at UFC 123.

Machida is now set to face off against Randy ‘The Natural’ Couture at April 30th’s UFC 129 in Toronto.  UFC president Dana White has called the fight a ‘must-win’ for the Dragon.

‘Downtown’ Dave Brown returns this week to with another edition of Late Round Flurry to tell us why releasing Machida in the case of a loss to Couture would be a bad mistake for the UFC.

Agree, disagree?  Let us know in the comment section.
