lesnar will come out like w/ something flashy....probably a high kick or something crazy like that....

i think the energy randy will be using to try and get back up will end up being his downfall....lesnar can just lean on randy and it's extremely taxing to randy's cardio.....

lesnar will finish randy via knee's to the body late in the 2nd round

1) Lesnar on the night will probably weigh about 50 pounds more than Randy will and there for IMO if Lesnar takes him to the ground then I cant see randy getting back up

2) Randy is probably strongest in the clinch but how can you hold a guy up against the cage who is 50 pounds more than you and has the strength of Lesnar

3) Couture's major strength is his ability to use his wrestling to take people down and pound them out or inflict a lot of damage but I really cant see him taking Lesnar down and if he does then ill be amazed if he can keep him down there

4) Randy has good stand up and we are yet to see how good Lesnars stand up is but he did break one of heath Herring bones with one shot and partially blinded him for the rest of that fight so we know he can put you down

5) Lesnar is stronger, faster and more athletic than Randy and his main weakness is his BJJ and lets be honest Randy isnt known for him submissions

The only thing I personally see Randy having over Lesnar is his experience and his amazing Cardio which IMO counts for alot in MMA but also I cant see how these 2 alone will win him this fight.

Your thoughts please because I honestly believe Lesnar will make a statement in this fight and also im not a Lesnar nuthugger, I love Randy but I really believe the odds are against him in this one

Your analysis is too technical. This is the only way Randy (and anybody else, including myself) can win this fight:

If that logic panned out then Pete Sell should be impossible to KO, and Tito should never have lost to Chuck!

Randy is going to win the stand-up war with his elusive striking.

Keep in mind, MMA is not won on paper.

Fixed that for ya
Thank you! 'Bout time someone said that.

I cannot see Randy gassing out in this fight. Well it is possible, but I don't think it's likely. And I can see Randy taking this via unanimous decision. I can see Randy out-scoring Brock. I can see Randy being able to take Brock down as well. If he can do anything to him on the ground I am not sure.

Randy is getting too old for karate styled kicks, so Id say he probably have to give Brock some type of 1-2 combo.

If they do in fact go to the ground, I'd say Randy should probably have to rear naked choke him or some other. Brock got volcano arms and I dont see an easy armbar being pulled on him, same thing for triangle choke..too risky to use on Brock

Anyway I look at this fight, I see Randy taking it. But I'll say Randy by GNP, round 1.

I think your right that Randy wil try some seeps or trips...but i think he will use the art of evsion in the first to try to tire Brock clinch and dirty box throught the first....

In the second I really look for those sweeps or trips from Randy and I see him trying to keep Brock on his back....

Brock in everyfight has gotton on the guys back and stayed there...i think randy will some how try to use that against Brock.......I like Randy on pure faith...

Although Brock could just end it with one good shot......

Ummmm I think Randy will be the better fighter standing and will avoid most takedowns. I think Randy will do enough to earn the decision
