After seeing the betting lines for Couture vs. Lesnar get further and further apart over the past few days, I thought I'd check and see how Couture had fared in the past with betting agencies.

Fortunately for the lazy man controlling my brain some one had done the hard yards for me.

Betwwx.com has compiled a list of betting odds for Couture since he fought Josh Barnett in 2002. The list is as follows:

Gabriel Gonzaga -140 vs. Randy Couture +110
Tim Sylvia -235 vs. Randy Couture +205
Chuck Liddell -135 vs. Randy Couture +115
Mike Van Arsdale +300 vs. Randy Couture -370
Chuck Liddell +205 vs. Randy Couture -255
Vitor Belfort +160 vs. Randy Couture -185
Vitor Belfort +200 vs. Randy Couture -240
Tito Ortiz -200 vs. Randy Couture +170
Chuck Liddell -225 vs. Randy Couture +185
Ricco Rodriquez +100 vs. Randy Couture -140
Josh Barnett +135 vs. Randy Couture -165

To save everyone some time counting that is a 4-1 record for Couture as an underdog since 2002. As a favourite, Couture has compiled a 2-4 record with an overall UFC record since 2002 as 6-5.

Definitely doesn't make him look as much like a dog as they portray him.

Just to add to this, Couture is on a 2-fight winning streak and hasn't had a 3-fight winning streak in nearly 8 years!

Also, 15 of Couture's 18 UFC fights have been for a Championship belt i believe.

Just off the top of my head I can't remember if that's true or not.

If it is true that's an amazing stat. It also shows how Couture has "imposed his will" on the UFC brass over the years
