    Can't tell you how excited I am to see Randy fight again. Serious test for both of these fighters! Not a big fan of Lesnar because of his WWE antics he brought to the octogon against crazy horse, but it's hard not to pick him as an up and coming contender. If he does beat couture, there's no doubt in my mind he'll be submitted in the first against mir or big nog. No matter how hard he trains it would take years for him to compete at their BJJ levels.

    First off guys we have a fighting section for a reason... There are two other threads like this there.

    Secondly, Brock is douche. Mir's BJJ is overrated and will be pwned by Nog.

    Either way, i see Big Nog the winner of this "tournament".

    Brock Lesnar is a punk...he should have stayed in wwe and made millions....I can't believe that he thought he could be a professional football player just because he has muscles lol .....What a JOKE!

    Very interesting matchup for Randy. I think Lesnar will eventually be too much for Randy.

    ^^^ Sadly my brain agrees with you...

    Although, i think Randy can outstike him..

    The word outta the Miletich camp is that Lesnar doesnt like getting hit... Timmy says he could KO him anytime. And that he is a *****...

    Maybe if Randy can land strike and avoid being on the bottom of Brock, he can pull this out...

    I dont think Randy will be able to out wrestle him... He can get him down, sure, but keeping him there will be the question.

    I hate this match up...

    But you know what guys, ive learned my lesson on picking agaisnt Randy Couture.

    I didnt think he could beat Vitor, he did. TWICE!
    I didnt think he could beat Randleman. He did.
    I didnt think he could beat Pedro, he did. TWICE!
    I didnt think he could beat Chuck. He did.
    I didnt think he could beat Tito. He did.
    I didnt think he could beat Tim Sylvia. He did.
    I didnt think he could beat Gabriel Gonzaga. He did.


    This time, im NOT picking against him.

    I got Randy by Decision.

    im taking randy as well and yeah Nog is Flippin NOG bro he is going to own MIR, now NOG AND COUTURE would be a better fight and a Rematch with Mir is more deserved Lesnar
    Lesnar doesnt even deserve a title shot but thats another story

    Yes you should never count out Randy but I think if ever there were a time this might be it. He is not getting any younger and Lesnar is just a bull. Lesnar is so strong, on that ground, that I think he will at the very least neutralize the advantage that Randy has in subs. On the feet is where this fight will be interesting. Randy has a mean clinch but Lesnar is so damn big, I am curious to see if Randy can use the clinch to his advantage and score with the "dirty boxing". I honestly see this fight going the same way that the Ricco fight went. Randy landing well early on but getting worn down due to the sheer size of his opponent.

    Is that true that Timmy said that WAR? If so that is very interesting. I have a hard time believing that Timmy could KO or handle Lesnar in anything outside of sparring but it still interesting to say the least. I think Lesnar is so powerful that he would rush Timmy and GNP his way to a win but I guess we will know a lot more Sunday morning. I can't wait!

    Its going to be good.Everytime randy gets in the ring he always haas a game plan. Just look at the fight with silvia he kept it standing and took a page out of chucks book with the over hand rights and lefts. He is going to change his style and jjust dominate lesner and shck the world again

    this card sucks but I am still trying to earn some $$$$ on it, just dont ever gamble with Randy, I see him winning by strikes if he does, or a decision b/c of his strikes. Regardless the match up isnt great, Randy is nto a submission specialist my no means he can get someone down and try and keep them there from side control and hope to get a cross maybe and then bomb them down but I dont see him holding a guy like Lesnar down, escpecially from the mount, I dont think he stay on top of Lesnar, I see him faking a bunch of shoot attempts and throwing at Brocks left side as he leaves his big ass head there just to get clocked, Randy is a vry smart fighter and i think he knows what he needs to do here, I believe he will go with that strategy of faking takedowns and circling and swinging JMO. Lesnar is DEFINATLY going to try and do it in reverse and throw then shoot but with Coutures height Lesnar isnt really quick enough to shoot by surprise on someone like Randy, he will see it coming for sure,. OK maybe I just talked myself into money on Randy here lol

    There is no way Randy holds Lesnar down. Lesnar also has suprisingly good stand up striking. I think Lesnar is going to walk through this fight and probably re-match Frank Mir early next yea rto unify the title.

    I'm going with Lesner on this one. I haven't quite decided on how I "think" it will end, but the only way Randy is going to beat him is by submission.

    I'm taking Lesnar..everybody is saying he'll lose but thats what every one thought about Rashad evans and he had a sick knock out on chuck liddell.
    shit randy could barely beat Tim Syilvia wwent to a decesion in the fifth. And Fedor killed sylvia in 38 seconds. Randy is old and on sat he will lose.

    ^^ What fight were you watching?

    Randy won ALL five rounds?!

    Fedor is not Randy. And Lesnar is NOT Fedor.

    And there is no way in HELL you called Rashad over Chuck by knock out... No one thought that was gonna happen...

    Is that true that Timmy said that WAR? If so that is very interesting. I have a hard time believing that Timmy could KO or handle Lesnar in anything outside of sparring but it still interesting to say the least. I think Lesnar is so powerful that he would rush Timmy and GNP his way to a win but I guess we will know a lot more Sunday morning. I can't wait!
    Thats what ive heard... Miletich says so as well. He says Brock is afraid to be hit, and that Tim always got the better of the two while boxing. Of course that doesnt mean much. The word outta Team Punishment is that Tito always gets the better of Rampage. And when they both fought Chuckles, Page killed, and Tito didnt.

    Not that i think it matters in this fight however, Tim is not fighting him.

    I think Randy's best way to win is to land strikes early and often, and hopefully take Brock into the 4th and 5th rounds where he has never been before.

    I mean, Randy has been in 5 Round wars many times, i dont think Brock has the gas tank for it...

    If Brock doesnt win in the first 3 rds, Randys chances improve dramatically.


    Like i said in my previous post, im done counting Randy Couture out.

    Couture has this! I just don't think lesnar really knows who he is going to be fighting, just seems to show no respect to Couture.

    I agree, on the point of Lesner losing if it gets into the 4th or 5th rd. maybe even the 3rd. Randy has so much experience in this area and Lesner has none. Randy has a way of wearing down his apponent and finishing well. Lesner is huge but in a real drawn out battle that is not going to be an advantage. It takes alot of work on the part of the lungs and heart to perfuse 265+ muscle and after 15 to 25 min of dealing with Randy He will be gassed like a mf. If Lesner wins it will be due to a huge strike and Randy can be very evasive. I see Lesner wasting alot of energy with haymakers that dont find thier target and getting caught with Randys counterstrikes. Lesner better land a huge strike early or lay on top of him and make Randy work otherwise he will go down suckin wind like a dying man. Randy ftw.

    I think that Brock will try to go straight to the ground and try to GnP his way to victory...

    Thats his shot, i dont think he'll KO Randy, but he does throw bombs...

    I like Coutoure but I kind of want Lesnar to destroy him and stop the haters. I'm not a huge fan of Brock but the heavyweight division is so boring, we need a huge destructive mess like him to make it interesting, and Randy's pretty much done.

    I like if Randy's gonna win it'll be due to either a blatent rookie mistake from Lesnar (a la the Mir fight) or if goes to round 4/5.

    Agreed, but Dana likes money. And he's probably going to make A LOT more money off this fight then he would have if he put a different HW in there.

    Umm.... No... Actually the opposite would be true IMO.

    We'll see tomorrow for sure, but IMO, Randy has the cleaner stand up.

    100% Agree, but we've already excepted that fact about Dana and the UFC.

    Hes pissed off a number of fighters who have been fed up and left. Even some champions.

    Jens, Murilo, BJ, Tito, even Randy.

    Those guys are all ex-champs. At one time or another, they all left the UFC due to $ issues.

    Lesner is getting the fight for the same reason Kimbo got the fights in Elite XE, they want to rid on is back and make him the big out of this world attraction.

    Lesner is big and impressive and if he can pull out a win against Randy he will have made is career.

    Then again after he fights guys like Nog he will lose for sure.

    I think he can beat Randy, and i think in a re-match with Mir he'd smash the hell outta that 1-dimensional POS.

    But against Nog, Werdum (whos been released by the UFC), and GG, i dont think so...

    I think it might go into decision. Brock will keep taking him down but will not be able to do anything with randy for submission or ground and pound.

    I see alot of scrambling by Randy to get out of Brock's takedowns and GnP while getting beat silly in the 1st, then more of the same in the 2nd with a ref stoppage.

    Nate Marquardt: Tough call. If it was just after Couture fought [Tim] Sylvia, Couture 80 percent. Now I say 60/40 Couture. Couture has the experience and skills to win. Lesnar has the size and power to win. Will Couture have the speed, strength and stamina considering his long layoff and age? Lesnar has one-punch KO power, and, with his college wrestling, has a decent chance of beating anyone in front of him. Itís a gamble, but I say Couture by decision.

    Ricardo Liborio: Brock may be too strong, but I think Randy will be too experienced for him. Couture by submission [in the] third round.

    Scott Bieri: Brain says, ďLesnar is physically too much for Couture Ö Lesnar by ground-and-pound in two or three.Ē Heart says, ďCouture uses striking, counter wrestling and the cage to win a decision or TKO in four or five.Ē Sorry about the non-committal answer; usually not my style. Emotional connection with this one.

    Chris Lytle: I see no way Randy can win. Heís too old, too small and [had] too long of a layoff. Lesnar is too massive, athletic and younger. That being said, I think Randy wins.

    Stephen Quadros: This is potentially a really bad fight for Randy Couture and not just because of age or size. Lesnar is fired up, athletically the stronger of the two and possesses the combination of heavy hands and superior wrestling that has been a problem for ďThe NaturalĒ in the past with big guys like Ricco Rodriguez and Josh Barnett. Lesnar has a strong chance of winning inside of three rounds if he puts Couture on his back, keeps him there and smashes away. But, if the fight goes past three, Couture will win.

    Dave Mandel:/Sherdog.com

    Randy Couture is clearly
    the pros' pick for UFC 91.
    Mac Danzig: I think Randy wins this fight with experience and overall ability. It seems like Lesnarís best chance of winning is if he can hold someone [down] for three rounds like he did to [Heath] Herring. I donít think he can do that to Randy. Plus, he has a giant penis tattooed on his chest, which canít be helpful.

    Shawn Tompkins: Randy Couture will win because he is Randy Couture.

    Kevin Burns: Couture wins a decision by dominating the clinch. Lesnar will pose issues with his strength, but Randy will work around it and pound him out.

    Rory Markham: I would love to [give a prediction], but I have no idea who takes this one.

    Duke Roufus: Randy has heart, experience and abilities to strategize. Lesnar is a beast at heavyweight. Gonna be a great fight. [Iím] going with ďCaptain America.Ē

    Rich Clementi: My brain says Lesnar, but if Randy can scramble a lot into the later rounds, I have Randy by KO.

    Erik Paulson: Iíve worked with Brock for this fight, and Iím friends with Randy. Iím in Brockís corner. Iíll pass on this one.

    Mike Whitehead: Randy by TKO in the third. Brock wonít be able to keep up the pace Randy is going to set.

    Guy Mezger: You just canít bet against Randy.

    Kultar Gill: Never count Randy out. Randy by experience.

    Ulysses Gomez: I think Lesnar could take this fight. Heís younger, stronger and just a genetic freak. Randy is a smart fighter who always finds a way to prove me wrong when I bet against him. Looking at Randyís losses against Josh Barnett and Ricco, once he was put on his back, it was hard for him to get out from that position, and thatís where he lost the fight. I think that Lesnar has the ability to put Randy on his back and keep him there. If he can do that, then I think Lesnar will win the fight.

    Rick Roufus: Couture will press the action, push him against the fence [and] use dirty boxing. [If it] goes to the ground, Randy can handle himself. Couture wins.

    Din Thomas: I think Randyís got his hands full. Most fight fans donít want to give Lesnar his props because they see him as a WWE guy. Not me. I see a college wrestling national champ, a big one, a really big one. I trained with a national champ in Ben Askren, and he played with me like Michael Jackson does an 8-year-old. But with Randyís experience, he will prepare with the right people, and [it] will be easier for him to prepare for Lesnar than it would be for Lesnar to prepare for Randy. Iím just not sure itíll be enough. Iím gonna go with Lesnar.

    Cung Le: Randy by decision.

    According to the pros, Lesnar's
    inexperience will be his
    downfall against Couture.


    Marvin Eastman: Randy by submission [in the] fourth round.

    Ron Frazier: Iím a little biased since I train Randy, but he will win.

    Nick Thompson: Brock by being too big for Randy.

    Johny Hendricks: I think Randy is one of the smartest fighters, and he has a plan. I think he will put it into action. But Brock is strong and one of the strongest Randy has faced, so if Randy can force his way in the first round, he will beat him. I think Randy wins [in the] third round.

    Luigi Fioravanti: Randy will gas him out and get the decision.

    Spencer Fisher: Lesnar. [Heís] too big.

    Jens Pulver: Well, I am very excited to see Randy take on Goliath. All accounts would give Brock the edge just on size and wrestling. But, hey, itís Randy, and he is unreal.

    Frank Shamrock: Randy by TKO in four rounds. I love Randy.

    Eric Pele: I think whoever gets top position wins. Being an old fart myself, Iíll be rooting for ďThe Natural.Ē

    David Loiseau: Randy always finds a way to win. I donít know how, but he will.

    Eddy Millis: I got Couture. Randy wins by TKO in the second round.

    Jason Lambert: Couture [via] TKO.

    Chael Sonnen: Iíll bet 25 percent of Paulo [Filho]ís purse on ďThe Natural.Ē

    Jake Shields: I think it will be a good fight in the beginning, but I think Randy has too much experience, and, after a round or two, it will show with Randy winning by TKO.

    Leonard Garcia: I think Couture wins, because he always finds a way when everyone thinks he canít.

    Stephane Vigneault: I believe Brock has all the tools to beat Couture, and thatís what I think [is] gonna happen. Brock is so big, tall, strong -- and [heís an] incredible wrestler -- but my heart is with Randy. You canít bet against Randy because when we think heís gonna get beat, he destroys his opponent. I think Brock Lesnar [will] beat Randy and become UFC heavyweight champion after four fights; [itís] gonna be ridiculous and very bad for the sport. Pro wrestling fans [are] gonna think all pro wrestlers would beat real MMA fighters, but [the] UFC sees the [money] with Lesnar. Anyway, if that happens, I see [Antonio Rodrigo] ďMinotauroĒ [Nogueira] or Fedor [Emelianenko] beating him and saving MMAís reputation.

    Jeff Monson: Lesnar by decision. [Heís] too strong, athletic and a bad match for Randy. Only way Randy wins is to survive and [try to see if] Lesnar gasses.

    Zac George: Randy recovers an early F-5 to TKO Brock [in the] third.

    Pete Sell: Couture all the way. Too much experience dealing with adversity. His technique and pressure will break Lesnarís power down.

    James Thompson: This is a really interesting match on so many levels. Randy, in the past, hasnít done well against bigger guys and has also been inactive for a bit. But this is only Brockís fourth fight. [When] all [is] said and done, I see Randy winning by surviving the early [rounds], tiring Brock out and finishing strong in the later rounds. Iíll go Randy [by] TKO [in] round five.

    James Zikic: Randyís experience, heart and conditioning will overcome the athleticism, size and power of Brock. I predict after a couple of rocky moments during the fight that Randy will find a way to secure a submission or TKO in the fourth round.

    Cyrille Diabatť: Too many factors Iím not sure of to give an accurate opinion. If itís Randy at his top we see against Brock, Randy should win, even though Brock is so big and powerful. Experience and skills are, most of the time, better than just size and power. But Randy has been away from the sport a long time, while Brock has been in there evolving as a fighter. Has Randy lost his game and fighting skills? Thatís the question.

    John Lober: Randy will need to land some hard punches to outwrestle Brock.

    CB Dollaway: If the fightís ended quick, I think it would be Lesnar that does it. If the fight goes to a decision, I gotta give it to Randy. Should be a great fight. Canít wait to watch.

    Jess Liaudin: Randy had a problem with bigger guys that can wrestle -- Josh and Ricco -- in the past. But both those guys were very well-rounded and conditioned MMA fighters and not just bigger fighters. Randyís awkward punching skill and his great head movement make him a dangerous fighter to trade [with] for anybody, and I donít see Lesnar catching him. Brock may get some takedowns, but ďCaptain AmericaísĒ scrambling and cardio will allow him to stand back up over and over again, which should tire Lesnar and give Randy the upper hand in the later rounds. Randy via TKO in round three.

    The Final Tallies:

    Pros who picked Couture: 28
    Pros who picked Lesnar: 6
    No pick: 10

    Randy coming in at 220lbs tells me he is conditioned to grind it out for the full 25 minutes and wear Lesnar down.

    If Lesnar does not win within the first 3rds....it's all Randy from there (depending on the direction of the fight).

    I see Randy using footwork to avoid Lesnar's straight ahead shot..I can see Randy using some cage tactics against the fence long enough to get in some dirty boxing and disengaging to start the process all over again.

    For some reason though, I feel Couture might Submit Lesnar. I know, call me crazy but for some reason it has crossed my mind.

    Who knows really....

    I certainly hope Lesnar gets his head knocked off his shoulders, bottom line is that he has never been punched in his life..he could crumble like Bob Sapp for all we know?

    Nog is the real champ and will restore order and balance to the HW division regardless.
