Couture actually said in an interview he isn working on submissions from gaurd at all. He is working on scrambling if he gets put on his back. This was in a recent interview (a few days old) but i don't have the link. I can try to find it again if someone wants it though.

He will need to scramble quick becuase if Lesnar gets on top he will be hard to shift

Thats what I was thinking but I guess you can never underestimate Capt. America. This fight is really interesting cuz I really have no clue how it will play out. Will Couture defy the odds again or will Lesnar simply prove too athletic to compete with. They were talkin about this fight in some video discussion thread on youtube and someone mentioned that every punch Lesnar has landed in his short MMA carrer has knocked the person down and every kick attempted on Lesnar has been caught and followed by a right hand. I looked back and realized that the dude was absolutely right. Nobody has been able to eat one of Lesnars punches yet so I figure even though Randy is great at keeping fights in the clinch Lesnar should still have a punchers chance in the standup game too so he isn entirely one dimensional.

Thank god. I was getting so tired of people claiming Randy was gonna work his sub game on brock if it went to the ground.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

I know. Like Randy has evert been a submission guy. He isnt the one to try and be putting Brock in a triangle or something lol.

i dont think that is what people are saying, that he will try submissions or triangles.Look at the way Mir caught him when he was over aggressive that is what i was on about anyway, the chances are randy will hit the deck and he may need a leg lock to finish the fight

im liking this card.

2 of my fav contenders at middleweight going at it. this could go either way quarry wins the standup but if it goes to the ground maia will get the submission.

florian vs stevenson is bothering me a bit. right now florian deserves a title shot, but thanks to major title shot delay it looks like he needs another win before that. i got florian in this fight, he has the upperhand in the standup, and is good enough on the ground to scramble out of trouble.

couture vs lesnar is interesting. looks like lesnar will just overwhelm couture with sheer strength. then again, couture always seems to win when he's the underdog. couture has a good gameplan here, but i don't know if he'll be able to avoid lesnars speed.

<--- the punch that started it all!

My current favirote fighters
Anderson Silva
Junior Dos Santos
Mauricio Rua
Alistair Overeem
Jon Jones

WAR dan hardy, paul daley, ross pearson and terry etim doing it for the britz!

Randy hasn't had a leg lock finish once in his entire career, honestly I can't even recall seeing him attempt one. He's a wrestler at heart and the few subs he uses are chokes. He's not going to try to sub Brock unless Brock is seriously gassed or rocked, and I don't think he'll take the chance even then. He'd rather just pummel brock into submission.

I'm gonna have to go with Lesnar all the way. Nothing against coture, but Lesnar is new and improved. His striking, ground game, and submission defense has drasticly improved.
