Brock lasted all three rounds with Herring without becoming winded, but I don't think he was really pushed to work too hard. I think that will be the difference here. Randy should be able to wear him dwn by forcing him to work and scrambling to his feet when it hits the mat.

I think coming in light is the best move Randy can make. Either way he's going to be at a serious weight disadvantage so why sacrifice speed to be 230 or 240 when it's really not going to make much of a difference. Going with speed and stamina are his best options.

I get that feeling to that no matter what I pick the opposite is going to happen, but Randy has won what...10 out of 11 times he's been an underdog...I'm not exactly sure of the # but I thik that's about right.

The way I see it, you're taking a chance picking against Randy. I thought there was no way in hell he would get past Tim Sylvia, and then Gonzaga, why would I go against him again. One advantage that Randy does have is that he knows exactly what Lesnar is going to do, so its a good thing he's training with all these wrestlers. Should be interesting to see Randy trying to take Brock down

Brock lasted all three rounds with Herring without becoming winded,


and what fight were you watching?
I think you had another fight in mind. If not, re-watch. Watching it once when your drunk with your buddies, doesnt count.

Excuse me, but I don't appreciate being disrespected. I'm not going to make a big deal out of it, because it might have just been a joke but it's coming off as rude. Disagree with my opinion and that's cool, but don't disrespect me. By the way I drink once in a blue moon, not really my thing.

Couture is saying size won't matter, but after he loses the fight he will say the size difference was a huge disadvantage for me.




no way lesnar is so inexperienced its ridiculous i c him gassing early and getting submitted



randy is not very good at submissions he said so himself.

Brock might gas but I don't think he will I lost some respect for Couture for leaving us hanging but still know what he can do I don't think Lesnar is anything like Sylvia so this fight will not be like that one in the end I want to see how much Lesnar has improved and how he will do vs even better fighter


oh and who cares if Lesnar has fans who watched WWE or watch hell I was a big fan in the mid to late 90s it was great TV

hey man, nothing personal. You obviously dont read my posts. I am a joker, and someone who speaks his mind. Love me or hate me, thats fine by me.......I got no beef with you, so def. not trying to hate on ya. I dont drink as well, but you telling me Brock wasnt winded, or tired to me seems you didnt really watch the fight.
I just like people who are going to reply to something i said, to have their facts straight, thats all man.

It's cool, I obviouly misinterpreted, so we'll leave it at tat and I'll have a better idea of how seriously to take your comments.

I would love to see a vote on who thinks Brock was winded by the end of that fight because I just feel you are completely off-base. I might actually start a poll on it i the locker room to settle it once and for all

If Brock was winded he sure hid it well... I didnt even realize anyone was saying he was winded. He looked as fresh going into the 3rd as he did in the 1st.

Granted he wasnt working that hard, I mean its not like Herring was resisting much in that beatdown. But something tells me this is a guy who doesnt tire easy despite his size, he's just one of those rare genetically blessed individuals who can be that big and still have insane cardio.

We'll see how his cardio holds up in a 5 round fight against someone who is going to make him work. If Randy doesnt get KO'd in the first couple rounds...

winded and gassed are way different! if i run up a flight of stairs and get winded it doesnt mean i am gassed know what i mean? how will randy win? I dont see how he can do it, unless brock wants to stand with him. randy WILL NOT be able to defend brocks takedowns all night. I dont know if he can defend one. i also dont know how he will be able to hold brock IF he manages to get him on his back. The 60 lbs weight difference is gonna be huge in this fight. his best chance is to try and sub brock really early, cause i dont think that he has the stamina to keep brocks pace the whole fight. i think the only one that can keep up with his cardio is sherk.

lesnar rd 3 tko

Yeah, you're right. I think we were both reffering to gassed.

Every time Couture fights, I get the pick wrong. Same way with Chuck Liddell, with that said I'm staying with the wrong pick.

Winded/gassed I thought were the same in this context. If you want to argue semantics then yes he was winded lol, but he wasnt gassed.
