    i will be interested to see what randy weighs in at he looks pretty slim to me. is his body slimming down with age or is it his game plan to be lighter and faster to out move brock? or maybe he's the same im not sure we will see when he weighs in.

    I get the feeling that instead of trying to bulk up for this fight Randy"s game plan is the opposite he is going to be very cardio prepared and work on quickness so that he can move more effectively so that Lesnar will not catch him. U could see him do the stick and move gameplan in this fight for five whole rounds. Effectively testing Lesnars chin and his cardio.

    If you consider Lesnar slow by any means your really have no idea what your talking about…Lesnar is far from Slow..and his cardio will be either better or the same as Couture…Brock was known for his cardio in College as a HWGHT and even more so now since he has been training MMA…you might want to watch his training vids the guys workout is intense more so than Coutures in my point of view but thats just the different training styles i presume..Couture has great cardio not taking anything away but if you think Brock is just going to stand there and let him move around on him your crazy…first off Brock has a major reach advantage and is a hell of alot more powerfull and faster in my eyes at being explosive with his punches and take downs..also keep in mind Brock will use alot and i mean alot less energy taking down Randy then Randy will trying and key work trying to take down Brock…Couture 220 Brock 275 law of math and energy prevails in Brocks Favor..Now i am not taking anything away from Randy but he is seriously in for one hell of a fight and this time he will not have any advantage that he is normally the better at…all i can say is this will be a great fight and i dont see Randy winning but you never know…Brock in my opinion is just too much overall for anyone to handle and the only way he loses is by beating himself..the Era of Lesnar begins Nov 15…

    We know ur opinion on the matter tim u have said it 30 times no offense but u keep putting the same thing n every freaking thread that mentions Lesnar. I mean u take the thread over and like type 10 things in a row. We got it u think lesnar is gonna win. But he could lose. Good call.

    I'd say its more a law of physics than math or energy. Yeah, calm down Tim, we know brock is physically favored, heavily. But Randy is mentally favored. So will brains or brawn prevail? That's what we will find out November 15, and I also cannot wait.

    It all depends… if your good and a heavy weight like Randy it's millions,,, but you'll get paid less for lighter weights because they are harder to come by, but if your really good…..

    Tyson Griffin and Sean Sherk – Fight of the Night – $65,000

    Junior dos Santos – Knockout of the Night – $65,000

    Spencer Fisher – Submission of the Night – $65,000

    oops,, you get paid more for being a heavier weight (correction)

    Hard to find big guys? Sure? Randy made 250k for a signing bonus and another 250k after he defeated Sylvia. Hardly millions, but he did get a substantial share of the PPV revinues. Most non-headliners only get a few thousand unless they get fighting bonuses.

    You also must take into consideration the marketing pay they get from sponsors…most fighters earn more than whats reported…

    WHAT MAKES ANYONE THINK THAT LESNAR IS ANY DIFFERENT THAN KIMBO. I have always liked Kimbo, he is a rags to riches story. Although I have never felt that he was very talented, I did enjoy watching him fight. Lesnar is no differnet though, he's just a big guy who goes out and slugs away at his opponents, but he has no skill otherwise, so why is he enev here? OH Yeah, because he was already famous, so he sells tickets, so that's why he gets paid more than Chuck Lidell and everyone else. I hope he gets his ass kicked so everyone just shuts up about him, and talks about how much of a punk he is and that he didn't deserve to be here in the first place just like the way everyone turned on Kimbo. Need I remind everyone, Kimbo has never claimed to be the best, and in fact he was always humble about his abilities andn experience during his interviews, so the poor guy lost, so what, anyone could get dropped by a single well placed punch. What does that prove? NOTHING. So could everyone just lay off, and let the guy catch a break, it wasn't his fault that EliteXC headlined him, that was a financial decision on their part, what was Kimbo supposed to do, not take it?
