    The commercial on spike tv calls this the biggest fight in UFC history why ? I just do not agree.

    cant wait to see KenFlo vs Daddy though that should be fun

    I think this card looks pretty good. A lot of new faces though. I'm waiting for Tim to come on here and tell us all how great Lesnar is LOL. Tim, I agree with you that Lesnar is great, all I'm saying is that I think Randy has better chances than most people are giving him. Lesnar will hurt him at least a little though, thats for sure.

    They are expecting this main event fight with Lesnar and randy to get not only almost all mma fans but to draw in some of the wrestling fans and have more PPV buys then in the history of MMA. Which it will probally do.

    I understand that steve but in the spirit of the sport I might only put this in the top ten. Because it could be big it could be a passing of the torch like when GSP finally took the title from Hughes. or when Silva began his domination or when Chuck began his. My criticism is that only time will tell how big this fight is … It will be real interesting to see how Amir's career goes and this is the first step.

    this fight should be a gd won but idk who will get the win

    Lesnar is so Great…LOL HAHAH seriously it should be a great fight both fighter have a good chance at winning but in my opinion as you all know i think Lesnar will win based upon him being able to control Randy and i dont think Randy can control him but you never know…all i truly know is that this will be a great fight.

    They could have at least put together a few better fights on the card.

    I see Lesnar taking this unless Randy pulls off something slick which he could do.

  9. TIM

    Exactly and that what makes this a great fight…

    I cant wait to see if brock can take a punch. randy cant hit that hard so this will be a good test for him.

    lesnar is way to overrated, i dont like the guy to be honest, amir is great though and i hope he does well

    November 15, 2008 at 1:19 pm

    Lesnar is a bull and Courture is a well experience brawler in the ufc match-up but i do have to say i dont care who wins i give my props to both fighters but that pretty petite nose of lesnar needs to get re-adjusted!!!!

  13. Dead End Chaos

    November 15, 2008 at 1:20 pm

    weigh-ins and height in my book dont mean shit we will see whos the best trained for this brawl

  14. james hagan

    November 15, 2008 at 2:13 pm

    brock is so inexperienced, but size and strength could easily factor into this one… go randy, go ken

    Randy was looking good at doing what he does. It's just a never ending story though. One shot changes everything and now Randy is beltless. I guess when your that big it really just doesn't matter. I expected Brock to win just not this soon.

  16. TIM

    November 15, 2008 at 3:51 pm

    Fisrt off congrats to both fights in Randy and Lesnar…it was a great fight but in the end the Bigger Faster and more powerfull Lesnar prevailed like i said. Both fighters impressed me very much and i am very impressed with Lesnars overall Growth..so composed yet cautious at times but he remained calm and YES he can take a punch and it honestly didnt phase him as he came right back but when Lesnar connected the first time it Rocked Randy a bit and then the big hit came that made Randy crumble and fall to the ground i think it hit him squarly on the temple and then came the hammers and i mean hammers fists…i think he threw like 20 of them before the ref stopped it…it was over from the first punch that leveled him…Randy put of a valiant effort but in the end as RAndy said he is just one big SOB…and those fists are like Hammhocks…i must say this i am very proud with how Lesnar took this victory..but i also believe that is truly who he is a class act and will only dissrespect you if he gets dissrespected first like th Herring fight…Thank God we can finally shut the mouth of Kim Couture…man that bitch really bothers me and her smack talking is over for now i guess…she needs to act more like her husban and just shut up and not smack talk people..maybe thats why she got her jaw broken. Anyways as stated before the Era of Lesnar has begun and you can not deny that and you can not deny that this man belongs in MMA and tonight if there are any doubters still proved himself..now sure he has a long way to go on further developing his overall skills but man imagine this man in 2 years from now? i just cant wait for the next fight…im hoping for a Rematch with Mir but Nog would be great too and a very good test for lesnar as well. Congrats to both and much respect to Randy always a class act in either win or defeat…a new champ has been crowned….

  17. TIM

    November 15, 2008 at 4:04 pm

    Oh and if there still is any doubt on wether Lesnar can take a punch and more some…i think you got your answer tonight…he acted like it didnt phase him one bit..he was very content and calm in this fight through everything and got the better of Randy tonight…he is simply too much to deal with for a man of Randys size and might i say after tonight Brock looks very very scarry…he can take a punch and not flinch, he remained very calm when under pressure…and convincingly TKO'd Randy with one punch and it shoult of been a KO as Randy was out and shit i mena no disrespect but Randy couldnt even get up after the fight for several minutes. Class act all the way for both fighters tonight..but the better man prevailed and the future of the HWGHT division and the Era of Lesnar has begun…now lets see who he faces…it only gets harder from her on out for Lesnar and while i dont excpect him to win every fight but he should continue to dominant the UFC…this is a fact Brock Lesnar is a true MMA fighter and belongs in the UFC but surely he has a long road ahead of developing skills and facing tougher competition..Congrats to Lesnar as he earned this one convincingly.

    Yes another one…this was a great fight, Lesnar got tested and Couture got leveled.

    The beast has officially arrived…Lesnar smashes Couture

    By Steve Cofield

    This giant is no fluke. When a 275-pounder hits you with a bomb you go down. Randy Couture took a huge shot early in the second round and was wobbled. But he couldn't deal with the second big right that landed just over his left ear. Couture crumbled to the cage floor and Lesnar pounced on top of him. After 25 hammerfists landed on Couture's noggin, referee Mario Yamasaki had to stop it, making Lesnar the new UFC heavyweight champion.

    Couture stayed down on the mat for about 90 seconds trying to collect his wits.

    "(Heavyweight champ) sounds really good I cant believe it," said Lesnar. "I want to thank Dana, the UFC and I want to thank this guy. He's got a lot of balls to come back and fight a young buck like me."

    Couture was gracious in defeat:

    "Those are some bigass hamhocks coming at you. It's hard to get out of the way of them. I felt comfortable with the size difference. That's just a big sombich, that's all there is too it."

    the other fights were good tho…..i still lke KENFLO…..the way he fights

  22. TIM

    November 15, 2008 at 5:00 pm

    Come on how many people in that place an world wide where betting on Randy to win..that whole place new it would be a tough task but they still thought Randy was going to Win except for 50 cent who called it and even with all the Randy chants he said no Lesnar….The overall way lesnar won this fight surprised me…begginging to end…lesnar is truly devolping into an great MMA fighter however the outcome of him winning was never in doubt for me i knew he would win as there was to much for Randy to overcome. The Crowd was just trying to cover there asses thats all…but Randy is a class act and he have to respect him win or lose.

  23. TIM

    November 15, 2008 at 5:03 pm

    There was some sweet Subs too…overall a good card UFC 92 should be the bomb though…looks like Lesnar will fight again im guessing UFC 97 maybe earlier as it will depend upon the outcome and med suspensions if any on the 92 HWHGT fight outcome.

  24. TIM

    November 15, 2008 at 5:22 pm

    So technically speaking this win would put lesnar as the top 5 HGHWT in the world…and a victory over Nog if that happens would solidify it further and put him at number 2 ranked HGHWT in the world based upon the below ranking form MMA news.com my opinion lesnar is top 10 HWGHT maybe even top 5 but for me he still needs to prove this and if a fight with NOG happens and he beats him i think we can all agree that lesnar is definetly a top 5 HGHWT in the world.

    I was rooting for couture but i kind of expected this. I think Brock winning actually increases the probability of Fedor coming to the UFC. Ken Flo is good real good I didnt think it would only last one round. Gonzaga is prolly going to get at least another no 1 contender shot before spring if not a title shot before summer. Congrats TIM but now you need a new crusade!!

    dude tim man its a saturday night get a life bro…

    we dont need 12 thousand posts

  27. Kash

    November 15, 2008 at 8:30 pm

    Brocks not in your ten…you're crazy bro. I think Nog whoops Mirs ass and then looses to Lesnar.

  28. Jake

    November 15, 2008 at 11:25 pm

    Congrats to Brock. But like always I disagree with TIM. The punch hit behind the ear which isn't where the temples are. With guys that are that big any potential shot to anywhere on the head could result in a KO. Brock doesn't need to land a pinpoint shot on the chin or temple to drop someone. That guy just has freak show power.

    I was impressed with Brock in the clinch.Those were some nasty knees and I bet Randy will start feeling those once his head stops hurting.

    Ken Flo continues to improve and impress. Joe

    Daddy looked out of shape and soft. Wasted potential with Stevenson.

  29. whodini

    November 16, 2008 at 12:24 am

    i always thought Joe was overrated…how do you yjink Bob Sapp would hair against Brock? or maybe even Ernesto Hoost

  30. J.Nolan

    November 16, 2008 at 12:40 am

    As I predicted back on 2/28/08 Brock would rise to the top of Danas fight empire. Brock does have a lot to learn about mma,and he can take a punch. It is going to be a challenge to find a fighter who will be able to compete with Brock not because of his skill but, his size and power are a huge hurdle for obviously for the most skilled mma fighters. So with that said I say Brock will be the UFC champ for a long time. I wish Randy the best in life and am saddened by his loss but, it was time to change the guard.

    This is a sad time for MMA… :(

  32. The Truth

    November 16, 2008 at 1:46 am

    I think this is terrible for MMA. Brock didn't even earn this title shot. 3 career fights and he lost the toughest one he had? Brock still can't fight, he simply just massive. However a decade of steriod abuse will do that to a guy. I hope Brock gets so much attention that it pisses Fedor off. Then we'll see how well Lesnar can fight.

  33. Ric

    November 16, 2008 at 2:10 am

    I said that this was going to be just a payday (money fight) for Couture, and Brock would be new champ. I was right.

  34. Ryan S

    November 16, 2008 at 2:19 am

    Well Tim, congratulations. I know you were happy about last night. But you can't deny the fact that Randy did a pretty good job of controlling Lesnar and that punch that dropped Randy was no crazy power punch. If they met again, Randy would have a better chance.

  35. Ryan S

    November 16, 2008 at 2:35 am

    This probably means that Fedor will never come to UFC because I don't think financially Dana White wants Lesnar to lose that title for a while.

  36. TIM

    November 16, 2008 at 2:37 am

    Welll Randy didnt control Lesnar he did do a good job of protecting the takedown…the clinch game was easily won by lesnar and just because a guy is a clinch and against the cage doesnt mean he is in trouble or being dominated…did you see those knees lesnar threw…man it made Randy move away but yes overall i say this was Lesnar toughest test so far and he proved that he belongs in the UFC and MMA…and for all you haters Randy won his first UFC championship after only 4 fights in the UFC so are you calling Randy not worthy of his title shot??? didnt think so….all the true MMA fans will realize that this man is here to stay…and he is not on Steriods if he was it was during his WWE days for awhile but the man was huge back in College where they do NCAA testing very often. Just give the man his credit he won and is a force to be reckoned with and yes that puch hit right above the left ear not behind it but no it wasnt in the temple like i previously stated…

  37. Joe, Mercerville, NJ

    Well, well. Looks like Lesnar IS the real deal.

    The two intangibles that I said Lesnar needed to pass in the octagon, he did.

    Taking a solid punch, and fighting when cut/bleeding or hurt.

    Outside of Fedor who is going to test Lesnar?

    I would like to see his first defense against Gonzaga.

    I believe that fight will allow us to see a little more of Lesnar's potential such Gonzaga is young, big, and has a pretty good stand up game in addition to his ground skills.

    Lesnar winning will open the door for athletes from other sports who have size and strength to get into MMA.

    Why not a powerlifting champion?

    There are many who have Martial Arts experience.

    The learning curve is fast for these athletes at the level of Leasner. Wrestling is just such a strong core that every kid can learn for free in school programs across America. Wrestling provides the neccesary athleticism and more importantantly any mental reservations in dealing with a combat sport. Lesner will only improve on his stand up skills in the nest couple of years. He is for real>

  39. Ryan S

    November 16, 2008 at 3:36 am

    Tim, I just meant controlling him against the cage. Lesnar couldn't really move from the cage without putting himself in a bad position. I'm not gonna lie, I can't wait to see Lesnar evolve.

  40. Kash

    November 16, 2008 at 4:59 am

    I really want to see Lesnar fight a guy who is almost as big as him like Carwin.

    November 16, 2008 at 5:09 am

    great fights..

    Randy was doing great but it was just a matter of time..Brock will lose to Nog for sure..

    kenny looked great…BJ better watch out no joke..

  42. tom

    November 16, 2008 at 5:10 am

    i would love to see aaron vs jeremy would be great stand up fight

  43. peter

    November 16, 2008 at 5:26 am

    Brock is exactly what the ufc needs, a huge heavyweight . unfortunatly he's a goofball with a shlong tatoo'd on his chest. The talk of lashly from wwe coming to mma is exciting.

  44. Cyryus

    November 16, 2008 at 6:11 am

    I had hoped Randy would win, but these kinds of finishes are what makes MMA great, a fight can be over in a flash and in so many ways. I still believe Randy is the better fighter here though, and am still in no way truly impressed with Lesnar. Those little baby shots he was hitting Randy with when he had him down and stunned? Seriously, what the hell were those? Brock still has a long way to go in actually becoming anything other than some muscle bound freak in both stand up and grappling. Nog will probably beat him if he doesn't get caught, likewise with Fedor. He would murder Brock, and unfortunately for MMA fans we will NEVER see that fight because the only reason White signed Lesnar was to distract us all from Fedor and so that White can hide the UFC's heavyweight division behind a seemingly unbeatable Brock Lesnar.

  45. zalbag

    November 16, 2008 at 6:41 am

    tom ur right about Florian. The way TIm is about Lesnar the past month or so I feel that way about BJ Penn and also Rich Franklin. BJ is BJ but Flourian truly has elevated himself since the lost to Sherk to I feel a top 25-30 MMA fighter.

    They should let all of the people on here redo the rankings once a month via poll. I don't think they have been updated since like UFC 86.

  46. kevinb

    November 16, 2008 at 6:48 am

    wow…it's funny how all of a sudden someone who loses his debut fight then wins two fights against heath and randy…is here to stay? imagine what these guys who have been under contract feel about this?

    for the record, brock is just huge and a great wrestler. imagine brock fighting someone who can strike like K-1 fighters, but has submissions. Brock has only time and management. Dana white is a business person and will make sure that he holds onto the fans from the pro wrestling world to keep his numbers up. next you're gonna see the undertaker in the cage.

    mma fighters need to stop bsn' and get this fool out of the sport. it's a sham.

    someone is going to take brock in deep waters and you'll see that size be his downfall.

  47. dane drebin

    November 16, 2008 at 6:57 am

    kevinb u sound a little salty about brock beating randy

    if u stop the champ in the second round then u deserve to be champ

    the heavyweight limit is 265 and brock makes that. he uses what he has and it works for him

    i think he is a way better champion to watch fight the big tim

    who cares if he was the WWE champion he is now the ufc chmpion and he is now the man to beat

    deal with it

    nuff said

  48. zalbag

    November 16, 2008 at 8:03 am

    ur right dane would u rather have tim sylvia as champ again that guy was more of joke. Im not tryin to disrespect Tim Sylvia but that guy is a better example of a guy who only won because of size. It's too early in Lesnars career to declare anything about him yet. Id rather have Lesnar as the HW champ then sylvia still at least it will be fun each time he tries to defend his title. The fact is the guy works his AZZ off training for these fights He wants to be an mma guy. I think he at least deserves some credit for proving hes not a soap opera wwe wrestler that he is willing to get dirty and win a real sport championship. Other athletes from other sports would never have the balls to come to mma and try and fight for a championship. Brock likes to win he's a competitor its not about the money for him and he has gotten more humble each fight. I will respect him for that. Lennox Lewis or Shaquille O neal or Ray Lewis or any big supposed hard azz would never get into the octagon because they are A. afraid of getting hurt or embarrassed. B. they are only about the money C. they just don't care about MMA. Brock Lesnar is not the worst person to have in this position.

  49. Schmac

    November 16, 2008 at 8:05 am

    Brock had a good win today, but Randy was doing a great job up to that point and he's only 220. I think the larger experienced heavies will be able to beat Brock. Gonzaga, Fedor, Barnett…

  50. Cyryus

    November 16, 2008 at 8:15 am

    What makes this sport great is the "anything can happen" feel. At any given moment any fighter can get "caught", whether it be a punch/kick, or some submission, it is the nature of the game. However often times these instances create a false sense of "who is better", which I think this creates a prime example of. Do any of you really believe that Brock Lesnar is a better MMA fighter than Randy Couture? If you answer yes to that question then you really have no grasp of MMA. It reminds me very much of when Lennox Lewis was KO'd by Oliver McCall. The rematch left no doubt that Lewis was better and he just got caught when he pummelled McCall so brutally that McCall refused to come out of his corner and cried like a sissy baby. And while Lesnar may have the belt, I don't feel he's really "the man to beat".
