Randy should have his hands full with big Brock Lesner.

Lesnar is much younger, bigger, stronger, and quicker than Couture. Can Couture overcome all those advantages by fighting smarter? After watching his last two fights, it's hard to say. Couture seems to come into the ring with more of a game plan than most fighters. He may have some good tricks up his sleeve. Then again, he might just get pounded out by a guy who wears 3XL gloves. Anyway I'm looking forward to that fight.

UFC 91

-Randy Couture (220) vs. Brock Lesnar (265)
-Joe Stevenson (156) vs. Kenny Florian (156)
-Gabriel Gonzaga (256) vs. Josh Hendricks (238)
-Demian Maia (185) vs. Nathan Quarry (185)
-Dustin Hazelett (170) vs. Tamdan McCrory (170)
-Jorge Gurgel (155) vs. Aaron Riley (156)
-Jeremy Stephens (155) vs. Rafael dos Anjos (155)
-Alvin Robinson (155) vs. Mark Bocek (155)
-Ryan Thomas (170) vs. Matt Brown (171)

I'm looking forward to Kenflo vs. Joe Daddy, as well as two of the undercard fights....Jeremy Stephens (from Des Moines) vs. Anjos, also I think Hazelett vs. McCrory will be a great fight...both are GREAT jiu-jitsu artists.

This is a pretty good card, but nowhere near what The Ultimate and the super bowl cards are stacking up to be.

Local boy Jeremy Stephens had one of the biggest knock outs I've seen in a MMA. It ranked right up there with Anderson Silva's ko of James Irvin and Rashad Evans ko of Chuck Liddell. If I can find a copy of the fight, I will post it.

Yeah...I predicted poorly on these. Still can't believe that KenFlo submitted Stevenson so easily.
