Great fight for sure. This victory further secures Couture's status as an MMA legend. As Derek noted, there was a point where Couture seemed to gassing a little. But for a 43 year old guy to go five rounds with a fighter who is that much bigger and younger...that shows some amazing conditioning.
But when Couture is fighting at his best, his strategy is just as impressive as his conditioning. He has knack for spotting holes in a fighter's game and then exploiting them, and last night was no exception. I am a little puzzled why Sylvia didn't throw some leg kick or at least some combos. He looked very tentative, standing in front of Couture throwing single jabs.
It will be interesting to see how soon CroCop gets a shot at Couture.
