It was thought that Randy Couture would be stepping into The Octagon for the final time on Saturday night at UFC 129 being held at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. And at the end of his bout with Lyoto Machida, it was all but certain that he would be heading to retirement for the final time.

Machida has lost his last two fights against Shogun Rua and Rampage Jackson but it was his nasty flying front crane kick that would send Couture into retirement at 1:05 of the second round.
