Couture is ready to poke the bear with a stick

On the conference call, Lesnar told the media to asking about (expletive) Fedor. Lesnar, who is built like an NFL offensive lineman at 6-3, 290 pounds, stormed off the set during the ESPN's piece when Tom Farrey began to ask a steroid question. There's no doubt that the guy UFC president Dana White once called a bear has a short fuse.

'The Natural' told Yahoo! Sports in a video interview that part of his plan is to see if he can tap into that Lesnar temper. Couture's camp gave a suggestion to get Lesnar to lose his head even before the fight starts:

"Some of the guys were saying when you guys face off and touch gloves you should whisper 'steroids' and watch his blood pressure go up."

Couture did say that he thinks that UFC and MMA does a great job policing steroid use.

Believe it or not I think this is actually a good idea because he could probably get inside Brock's head with this and there is no denying that Brock has temper problems.

In other hands it might make him so damn mad he literally crushes Randy in matter of seconds, taking about 5 guys to pull him off. That would be a crazy site to see. If I was Randy I would just keep the trap shut for saftey purposes.

I love Couture interviews, such a thoughtful guy, I posed a link to this in the Couture/Lesnar thread yesterday too. Brock is comically out of his mind a bit, lol, it's nice that Randy can appreciate that.

Ref: alright touch gloves
Randy: *whispers* steroids
Brock: AHHHH Brock SMASH!


But I have watched that video before and I'm pretty sure near the end Randy said he doesn't plan to say that.

No, but a bear would have been able to stop Herring.

Brock resembled a beached whale more than a bear....in that he just lay his massive weight on herring until the time ran out.

Demian Maia may be the Fred Astaire of jiu-jitsu, but itís too bad Silva is the Gene Kelly of kicking everyoneís ass.

That is ridiculously funny! It's too bad Randy wouldn't do something like that, I'd love to see Brock's reaction.
