Brock should, but cant sell Couture short. He picked Silva apart.

I'm hoping in my heart of hearts that Randy can pull off one more upset.... but I think that Brock may be too much for him.

Couture is a ground & pound specialist.... never seen any submissions from him... and he's in for a treat if he thinks he's going to lay on top of Lesnar and punch him for 3 rounds.

The key will be surviving the first round. The longer the match goes the better for Couture.

Anyone watching "The Ultimate Fighter" this season? It's been the BEST one out of any IMO. Last episode was comedy at it's finest.

I think randy will win, and i will never bet against him after his fights with Rizzo, so Randy.

But i like Brock as well. I guess ill just be cheering for a good fight. stevenson-kenflo should be good too

I dont like betting against Randy ... because he find ways to win and he's a lot more likable than Lesnar.

That said ...he gets demolished in this fight. Lesnar is gonna steamroll him.

Saucey knows his MMA. Last event my only money bet was a 9-1 underdog and I won. If Couture pulls this one out, I might actually be happy to lose some money on that one.

Good thing I get the UFC pay per view fights for free.

Lesnar is going to win with a KO in the 3rd round.

I hope Lesnar takes his time and doesn't kill him in 20 second. I would like to see a fight

Lesnar should have demolished Frank Mir too but got sloppy and submitted. If he isn't careful the same thing is going to happen - with Couture's experience he will pounce on any errors. That said, Lesnar's a monster - very quick for a guy that size. Gonna be fun to watch.

couture's experience is just too much for lesnar to handle.
lesnar will probably pound the shit outta couture for the first 2/3 of the fight, but then couture will capitalize on a lesnar mistake and submit him.
lesnar cant finish off guys when it counts ( when he has the momentum) and that will be his flaw again tomorrow.

I have to go couture. I met Randy during one of his appearances in Toronto and must say he is nothing but a stand up guy. He took the time to sign autographs for me and whichever friend of mine I wanted to give it to. He also actually humoured me for a good 20 minute conversation.

A class act who I cannot go against. I'll have my Natural Couture Tshirt on and definately will be cheering on Randy

Randy isnt great at submits, 2 in his whole career, his record isnt exactly outstanding either and he isnt a true HW, Lesnar, stoppage, 3rd.

Lesnar wins witha 2nd round TKO.

Randy fared pretty well through the first round but got caught with a big right hand that dropped him in the 2nd and then Brock just jumped on him and hammer-fisted him until the ref stopped it.

Damn. Hurts... but I figured that Randy would be a longshot to win this.

Is this a common thing in MMA, where you'll have someone challenge for the title after 2 matches? This is how pro wrestling became "fake" - promoters realizing they could have these huge gates by manipulating the matches.

this was bound to happen considering the rapid growth of the sport in the last few years. this isnt boxing were you pump your record to 40-0 by fighting guys your supposed to beat.

and please dont compare mma to pro wrestling, cuz elitexc is dead
