I'm actually pretty pumped for this fight... Do I think Lesnar deserves a title shot, No, but despite what I think he has one, but really that's not the point is it.

The point is that this has the potential to be a really interesting fight on a few levels.

1. Is Lesnar a true freak of nature? After his utter domination of Herring, in which he showed he is fast learner and much better prospect than his first fight in the UFC against Mir. Will he have the right gameplan to do the same to Randy, there is no doubt he is strong enough to.

2. Has the time off hurt Randy at all? As much as you may hate Lesnar, this is a dangerous fight for Randy. It could well be his biggest challenge. Randy has dominated big guys in the past, but Lesnar poses a whole new question, no one really knows what he is capable of.

3. I'm not sure if Randy can hold Lesnar in any positition long enough. Lesnar is so big and strong, it will take so much out of Randy just to get him in a position that he can take advantage of, whereas Lesnar just has to lean on Randy.

4. Randy will know that Lesnar likes to explode and pounce on situations, maybe he will look to catch Lesnar against his own momentum.

I could go on but I won't, there are lots of questions and I for one can't wait to see it. The two biggest questions will be answered one way or another though. Is Randy still capable of shocking the world with another awesome game plan? And is Lesnar the real deal?

I want Lesnar to win, more for some new blood, and I think he will keep evolving, and I like going for the bad guy so to speak.

Either way, title or no title, this fight is gonna be fun to watch, I'm pumped!

I still say that this fight is a win-win situation for me
Lesnar wins, becomes title holder and Randy learns not to **** around with contract issues

Randy wins, he faces the winner of Mir/nog. (on the assumption that Nog wins) we could see one of the greatest HW fights ever, a fight id be more willing to see then Couture v Fedor
