Going into the fight most people in the know were predicting another win for Sylvia. At 6'8" and 263 pounds, Sylvia had a 6" height advantage, a 40 pound weight advantage and was 13 years younger than Couture. The word on Couture was that he didn't do as well when he fought as a heavyweight and he didn't do well against strikers... and Sylvia is one of the biggest and hardest hitting strikers in the game. All of that didn't matter though once they were in the ring. BIG PROPS to Randy Couture!
