Couture Says Being Elusive Key To Avoiding Lesnars Power

Quote:
Randy Couture recently spoke to MMAWeekly.com and offered the following on what he thinks he needs to do to beat Brock Lesnar at UFC 91 in November:

“When you get stuck underneath those guys, I don’t care how good your jiu-jitsu is, they’re not going to give up submissions, they’re not going to get caught,” he said. “So now you’re down there underneath a big guy getting hit. I think I switched back to that wrestling mentality where when I get on my back, I want to scramble, fight, scrap, do whatever I have to do to get off my back, just like I would in a wrestling match.”


“I think that’s something I have to be ready for, (to) be elusive and stick and move, force him to miss and force him to charge, come after me and be able to move out of the way,” he said.


“He is what he is,” said Couture. “He’s a big, strong, athletic guy, and that’s the strength that he’s going to try to rely on. The rest of the changes in technique are going to be fairly subtle. He’s only had a couple months since the last fight. There’s not a lot of time to develop a bunch of new tricks. That’s the reality of the situation.”

Isn't being elusive and not letting your opponent hit you the key to beating any fighter?

No not really. Take Keith Jardine, the way to beat that guy is to run at him like a mad man.

Nope. Consider Nate Diaz, Nick Diaz, Wanderlei Silva, Dan Henderson, Big Nog...

Most of these guys win a lot of their fights by letting their opponents get tired of hitting them in the face.

Sapp is a joke now - but he was a lot stronger in his first few fights.

Couture is going to do the Machida dance

It wouldnt actually be a bad idea for Randy to train a little with Machida for this fight, learn a few evasive manouvers

Randy's entrance should have him walking in to mariachi music wearing a matador's cape.

He should consider bringing a matador' sword as well.

Haha, well played!

I don't know if you can be elusive enough to defend Brock's takedown. At least not a guy as small as Couture, who will probably be manhandled if Brock can get a hold of the lower half of Randy's body.

Sounds like it's going to be a boo fest if I know the average fan right.
