This Randy/Lesnar fight has got me puzzled, lets break it down

I have no idea what is going to happen in this fight. I have never been more confused or lost when it comes to picking a fight than I am with this one. I think Randy is going to win this but I have no idea how. I believe Lesnar will be the better wrestler and should be able to get Randy to the mat and on his back if he wants to. So if I have Randy winning this fight, is he gona win by a submission off his back?? I really dont see that happening. Do I see Randy putting Brock on his back and working some ground and pound?? No I really dont see that either. What about striking, will Randy outstrike Lesnar? Yea he will, but I see Lesnar taking him down as soon as that starts to happen. So what does this all mean?? Do I really have Lesnar beating Couture? I really dont know at this point but I wouldnt be shocked. This fight is 50/50 for me. But if I had to guess, Id say after losing 2 out of the first 3 rounds, Randy ends up on top of Brock in a scramble and ends up finishing Brock with strikes from half guard. I think if Randy can some how put Brock on his back he will make him look like a fish out of water. Especially in the late rounds, Lesnar may tire and Randy could outwork him.

I would like to hear a break down of this fight from you guys. i see alot of people picking Couture. I want to pick some of you guys' brains and se if Im missing something in my breakdown.

I don't see how Randy can win this fight on the ground. If he can keep the fight standing he could outscore Lesnar if he could avoid taking a big shot. If Lesnar lands a shot like he did on Herring then I don't see Randy being able to win it. On the other side, I think Lesnar will be able to take Randy down, but I don't know that I can see him finishing him short of a ref stoppage. It is a tough fight to call, physically Lesnar should be able to completely dominate Randy, and his wrestling might be just as good as Randy's. On the other hand nobody in this sport can gameplan like Randy, question is, how do you game plan for Lesnar with Randy's toolbag? Awfully hard to call but I'm leaning towards Lesnar.

This should be a really interesting fight.

Everything Randy does, Brock can do just as good or better.

Wrestling - advantage to Lesnar
Strength - Lesnar
Takedowns - Lesnar
KO Power - Lesnar

The biggest weakness Randy will be able to expose is Lesnar's lack of experience, especially on the ground. We've seen Randy take down some pretty big, strong dudes. But I'd imagine that trying to move Lesnar would be like trying to move a tree stump.

If Randy can get in Lesnar's face, get him up against the cage and work his clinch to set up a takedown then he could win the fight, same way he won against big tim.

i don't think randy can hurt lesnar standing frankly....i think if brock gets one takedown...the fights over...donkey kong GnP FTW

brock just needs to learn how to properly GnP from guard/half guard and he'll finish randy...if brock postures and blasts a straight right down the middle, is that blockable?

Unless you are stretch Armstrong, anything ending in 'plata is out of the question with Lesnar.

I think rubber guard and Randy Couture in the same sentence are out of the question also to be honest.

low kicks, alot of low kicks.

Rich Franklin made a good job against Hamil, doing both damage and stopping take downs.

But I have never really seen Randy do low kicks...
