Although he's an underdog at UFC 91, heavyweight champion Randy Couture continues to sound extremely confident that his overall MMA skill is just going to be too much for Brock Lesnar when the two fight next Saturday night.
"He's an explosive guy and obviously a very big guy," said Couture (16-8 overall MMA record) of his Nov. 15 showdown against Lesnar (2-1) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
"He's a good athlete and he's got a similar background as me, which makes it intriguing as we are both wrestlers. But I don't think he has one thing that other fights don't possess.
"He's certainly no bigger than Tim (Sylvia) or some of the other guys I've competed against and in some ways doesn't have as many skill sets as they have."
Is Lesnar really no bigger than Sylvia? Both guys weigh in right at the heavyweight limit of 265, but Lesnar probably has to cut more weight than Sylvia to get down to the limit, and Lesnar is much stronger than Sylvia.
