Randy Couture: the ultimate underdog

Betwwx has put together a list that confirms something I already suspected: that Randy Couture does much better when he’s the underdog. Here’s all of the odds on Randy Couture’s fights since he took on Josh Barnett back in 2002:

Gabriel Gonzaga -140 vs. Randy Couture +110
Tim Sylvia -235 vs. Randy Couture +205
Chuck Liddell -135 vs. Randy Couture +115
Mike Van Arsdale +300 vs. Randy Couture -370
Chuck Liddell +205 vs. Randy Couture -255
Vitor Belfort +160 vs. Randy Couture -185
Vitor Belfort +200 vs. Randy Couture -240
Tito Ortiz -200 vs. Randy Couture +170
Chuck Liddell -225 vs. Randy Couture +185
Ricco Rodriquez +100 vs. Randy Couture -140
Josh Barnett +135 vs. Randy Couture -165

That’s Couture coming out with a 4-1 record as an underdog, and 2-4 when he’s a favorite. Saturday’s fight is Brock Lesnar (-125) and Randy Couture (-105). The odds are pretty damn close but judging from the predictions coming out from most people, I think it’s safe to say Couture is the underdog once again.
