That fight is epic and I've said this I will NEVER count out Randy Couture in my life. EVER.
Yeah, but think of it this way:
What has Randy done in the LHW division to earn a shot at the title? I mean, you put him up against AS & you're clearly putting him on that path. Yes, he's a legend, but there are guys in there that have already put in their time to get to the strap. Fast-tracking big names is one thing when a division is weak on contenders (when AS fought Rich & when Randy fought Chuck/Tim), but that's not the case right now. There are at least 5 LHWs who could make an argument for why they should be next (assuming they win whatever fights they may be locked into right now).
