This just goes to show how far the sport of MMA has come. To have two of it's stars on ESPN (the biggest name in sports) is just incredible. Randy Couture and Brock Lesnar were actually just on Mike and Mike in the Morning (which actually airs on ESPN 2) around 9:30 A.M. EST, discussing their upcoming bout at UFC 91and just MMA in general. The pair of UFC stars will also be joining the cast of ESPN First Take, which starts at 10:00 AM EST. What wonderful news for the UFC and MMA in general as a sport, this will only help to turn more people on to MMA and help the sport to grow even more.

Yousucks balls man, stealing my thunder. I couldn't believe I finally got on here and posted someone before anybody else. Guess I still haven't. It's cool though.

Scroll down and listen. I personally think Lesnar is a great athelte, and during the phone conference lastnight I can understand why he got so upset about the constant Fedor questions when it's supposed to be conference about Randy and him fighting. He comes off a lot more personable on the Mike and Mike show, and it's how I think he really is person. Fight hype could get under anyones skin and he just doesn't know how to mask his frustrations, he's very open about how he is feels and I like that about him. Will will not get any sugar coating or bullshit from Lesnar.
