I would like to see a Mir vs. Lesnar 2 where Lesnar can get his revenge
This fight can really only go one of three ways. Lesnar knocks Randy Out, Lays on him for five rounds and wins by decision,lesnar lays on him for awhile but makes some mistake allowing randy to get him in a submission.
Perhaps after this Lesnar will hop back to WWE taking the title with him lol.

My prediction is a win for lesnar in round 2 by reverse
omoplata. He will then procede to F5 Frank Mir.
Just my personal opinion im sure a few will disagree.

I can't for the life of me imagine any real MMA fan wanting Brock to win. What would that prove? That size, strength and a crash course in MMA wins out over experience and technique?




This is an interesting development amongst MMAers mindset. Remember when TMA felt threatened by MMA and it was a regular thing to hear arguments that 'tattoos and agression will only take you so far', or 'there is no real technique in cage fights, they are not MAists at all' whilst the MMA crowd would retort with 'put up or shut up' or similar.

Now we have a guy who comes in to MMA that gets the Cage guys talking like sniffy old Karateka's

Are Lesnar's attributes based around his conditioning and physical strength? Of course they are. Does he have a training history that would lead him to be somewhat one-dimensional? No doubt. If he manages to find a way to make these strengths and limitations work for him in a live environment will that be impressive? You bet.

Ken Shamrock switched from shoot to work to shoot through his career in the US and Japan. Brock has put a line under his Entertainment career, and dedicated himself completely to real fighting.
Which can be said to have blurred the lines between the two to a greater extent?

If coming from 'acting' to the cage diminishes a fighters credibility, then is Couture's place in the sport tarnished by moving into acting? Does the fact that he was in the Scorpion King sequel make him a worse fighter? Does the fact that Lesnar spent 3 years shouting into a mic. and play-fighting on telly make what he brings to the cage any less dangerous?

Somebody shut Cord up. His stingingly accurate observations are really starting to p1ss me off. QUIT BURSTING OUR BUBBLES, DAMMIT.

*pokes pins in the eyes of Lesnar voodoo doll, repeats "Randy Is a Real Fighter" mantra over and over.........*

Sherdog 'play by play' has no write up for the florian or Couture fight, which would indicate that they have not happened yet.

AHHHH!!! Lesnar is champion. I don't care about Cord's good sense, I still wanted Randy to win, and I don't like Lesnar as the champion.

Yeah someone apparently was fudging around on wiki, dangit. Couture got KTFO. He could've takin it if he was where he was at when he trounced Silvia. I think everyone underestimates Lesnar a little bit though. On the plus side, Couture is abotu as tough as Lesnar will have to face in the ufc besides Noguiera so we may have a possibility for someone who can take down Fedor. In the near future that is.

Give him a chance, he has only been champ for 8 minutes

As it happens, I wanted Couture to win as much as anyone on here, but a 265 pound, 31 year old skilled real wrestler with heavy hands is not an ideal oponent for a 225 pound, 45 year old fighter coming off nearly a year long hiatus from the cage.
