Despite handing Randy Couture a 2ndRound TKO loss en route to jacking his title at UFC 91, reigning heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar has remained in fairly close contact with Captain America. Couture is one of the few men in the sport the former WWE superstar actually respects.

I'm surprised Randy is helping Brock and not Carwin . Was not Carwin a training partner for Randy in preparation for his match with Lesner?

Frank Mir would be a surprise.

The thing that impressed me most about that video was watching Brock train. First of all he seems to have lost none of his size. Another sign that he doesn't do steroids. Guys who are roiding tend to lose size really fast when they take time off. Second, the ab work outs he was doing, the clap push ups, and the ropes all show a guy who is very flexible and athletic.

I've never thought he looked like he did steroids any way. He doesn't have that veiny ripped sort of muscle any way. Unfortunately it seems like you can't be in good shape with out people questioning the legitimacy of your physique.

Sorry if that was a little off topic. Also wanted to say that I'm sure he's going to pick up some useful techniques from Randy. Carwin is going to sleep.

I'm pretty sure he did 'roids in his WWE days, because he was so much bigger and leaner than he is now days. But he's had his work ethic forever and that is what really made him and built him back up. He does not get enough credit for his work ethic.

hes smaller now because he cant cut 75 pounds and make weight. its fine to walk around at 340 of huge ripped muscles when youre a pro wrestler, not so much when you are a fighter that has to make 265 to earn money

Haha that was hilarious to watch Lesnar toss Tuscherer as though he's a little boy or something.

Im glad he has someone good to train with. Even when your Lesnar, you need real sparring partners to practice with. I also like this, because if Carwin cant get Lesnar down, he will prolly push him up against the cage and dirty box Lesnar (like he did to Mir) and Randy is good at cage work and dirty boxing.
I get the impression that Carwin is more well rounded MMA fighter, almost as strong and can match and surpass Lesnar's current wrestling ability.
Carwin wins by 1st round tko imo,

anyone wanna avatar bet me on it? priv mail me.

and ,am i the only 1 thats picking lesnar 2 beat carwin? also u know,that cain velasquez has no chance of beating the winner of this match.cause cain is just a weaker version of brock lesnar,he sucks at standing but hes got vicious GNP.so brock would beat him easy because thier the same fighter but brocks way stronger.and that also means if shane beats brock then he will have no proplem with cain .but i got brock by 2nd TKO vs shane and 1st TKO vs cain.

I watched this last night and I won't lie, I was surprised at how humble Lesnar came off given his track record of "heel" like statements. Lesnar can only benefit from this and I think it's an awesome move on his behalf.

I think lesnar's "heel" like statements are more so from the days of hyping up your fights for the WWE. He knows how to sell himself, get himself in the headlines, and how to make people react. When you do all that, you get big paydays and thats why he does it.

Anyhow I hope this continues to grow on people and people can see how much of a hardworker he really is.

Best of luck to brock, and lets see a great fight soon!

I'm not saying one way or the next. I was, more or less, saying that seeing a humble side of Brock was very refreshing. Not saying he can't be, I just haven't seen it. I also haven't watched all his clips and interviews.

I think this says alot about both guys and their respect for eachother.
When they fought,I believe to a degree Randy had a few moral victories in the bout and I would say Brock see's that.
Brocks physical prowlessness coupled with Coutures knowledge and in cage experince may prove to spell out victory for Lesnar when he squares off against Shane Carwin.

Brock has terrible gnp, he lands hammerfists while controlling you from the top, that's it. Brock has not had the ability to face a wrestler who can match him up with strength and wrestling, and I think both Shane and Cain are good enough to do just that. I think Shane puts Brock to sleep in the first round, and I think Cain beats Brock in a UD.

I think alot of people aren't recognizing that carwin could very well be Ko'd by lesnar on the feet. He's explosive as all hell, sure... but he cant really take a huge hit himself.

Like him or hate him one thing is clear from Brock's training and approach to his fights. This is a man that wants to win and be the champion for a long time. I'm a big fan of his and wish him the best of luck, but at the same time no amount of training is going to fix that long of a lay off. I can't wait for this fight.

The more i hear from Brock, the more i feel a lot of the hate against him is completely unwarranted - and probably stems from peoples inability to seperate fact and fiction. In real life Brock is seemingly a decent guy, but he has no problem playing the heel to sell PPV's. And he does it very well.

Otherwise this video proved nothing i didnt already know - Brock is an insanely athletic individual who is incredibly quick and strong. I am already convinced he will beat Carwin handily, this video didnt change that.

On another note, can anyone else see a difference in Brocks physique from now and prior to the illness? People keep mentioning it by a cant see anything of note, maybe a tad leaner?

Randy doesn't qualify?

Seriously, that was crazy impressive. He looked a lot leaner than I've ever seen him.
