Re: couture v. lesnar in UFC!

Couture=One of the classiest and greatest MMA fighters of all time
Lesnar= Meathead jerk who is a great wrestler and has good power in the right hand, but don't mention leg locks around him he doesn't seem to like them

Guess who I am rooting for?

Re: couture v. lesnar in UFC!

This is a very weird match-up for Randy. Doesn't exactly fit his normal game plan, he can't exactly use his Greco Roman skills when the guy he is facing has a wider back than his wing span. I wonder what kind of submission skills Randy has?

Re: couture v. lesnar in UFC!

I agree, Adam.

I think Randy will win because he usually finds a way to beat guys like Brock, but it won't be that easy

Re: couture v. lesnar in UFC!

Yeah on cards this looks good for Lesnar, but hopefully Randy can just out "Old Man" him for the win or in some way knock Lesnar TFO. I would be so happy if that happened, there's just something about Lesnar I don't like, probably that stupid knife tattoo on his chest and his unwillingness to come off as anything but a decent human being.

that tattoo is quite bad... for sure.

and I think he is a decent guy, he trains hard and works hard at this craft. He's cocky but a lot of them are.

Re: couture v. lesnar in UFC!

I see it as a lose lose for Randy. If he wins-he beats a newcomer, if he loses-he loses to Brock and possibly loses the opportunity to fight Fedor. Either way I am not looking forward to this fight. It seems like a "who wins" match up.

Re: couture v. lesnar in UFC!

Lesnar is like Goro in mortal kombat, I think Randy is going to have to RNC Brock because that head is a tank

Re: couture v. lesnar in UFC!

Couture will lose to Brock and even if he magically wins, his match-up with Fedor is outdated. Fedor will destroy Randy if they ever do fight and I honestly can't see how Randy will beat Brock he is too powerfull. Randy hasn't fought for a long time and people can say whatever they want but he has never faced someone like the Vanilla Gorilla. Brock Lesnar by annihilation.
