Default UFC 68 - Return of a Legend - WOW

Shots from last night's huge UFC 68 PPV card at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, OH. A sold-out crowd of 19,049 - the largest crowd in UFC history and in the eight-year history of the Nationwide Arena saw history as the 43 year old Randy Couture return from retirement to defeat the 6'8" UFC heavyweight Champion Tim Sylvia and recapture gold.

Tremendous crowd and a good undercard, but these photos are all Couture...Thanks for looking, critiques and comments welcome as always.

The good thing. Sylvia lost.

The bad thing. Now cro-cop will have to kick Randy in the head.

Great shots.

Great shots and a great fight. Amazing you managed to capture one of the few shots Sylvia actually landed on him.

A good 45 mins of training was lost today talking about the fights and the fact we get to head just an hour the opposite direction for when Franklin fights to get his title back.
