Kim Couture Surprised at UFC’s Disregard for Brock Lesnar’s Safety

(Dueling highlights, via MMA Scraps. And yeah, there’s some WWE action in there.)

Ever since yesterday’s announcement that Randy Couture would be facing Brock Lesnar in his return to the UFC, you’ve been wondering: Okay, okay, but what does Kim Couture have to say about this? Fortunately, she didn’t keep us in suspense for long. “Sugar Free” went on ESPN radio with Steve Cofield to talk about the match-up and express her deepest sympathies for poor, poor Brock Lesnar:

“It’s surprising to me, shocking that they’d throw a guy in there with only three fights. I kind of feel sorry for the guy. He poses some interesting problems but that’s what Randy is good at, is taking care of those problems. He’s no bigger or tougher than (Gabe) Gonzaga or Tim Sylvia.”

‘Sup, Sable? You going to let her talk about your man that way? Better represent.

Couture seems to be parroting a line that’s already been worn out in the less-than twenty-four hours since this fight has been official. That is, how does a guy with only three fights expect to hang with “The Natural”? Of course, perusing message-boards and MMA websites yields no shortage of people wondering how a 225-pound, forty-five-year-old man can hang with a physical monstrosity like Lesnar, who knows a thing or two about wrestling himself.

In other words, there’s more than one angle to come at this fight from, which means Dana White probably knew what he was talking about when he predicted over a million pay-per-view buys. The UFC has taken some heat for a lackluster heavyweight division since the departure of Couture, but to quote Dana White from yesterday’s conference call: “Our heavyweight division looks pretty damn good now, doesn’t it?”

Point taken.

Awesome Video man!!!! Did you see the part where Brock threw one guy out of the ring and then threw another guy on top of him?!!? Awesome!!!! Since Brock can beat up two guy's at once, I don't see how this "Randy Couture" guy even has a chance... He's gonna get PowerBombed. Later Y'all, I'ma go fuck my sister and suck down a few Busch Lights...

R.I.P.- #3 "The Intimidator" We miss you Dale!!!!

Oh, guess we can watch and see the answer to that: an injured Sylvia who he decisioned and one-hit-wonder Gonzaga. After getting knocked into retirement by Liddell. This "age means nothing" nonsense is hilarious. Couture for some reason is considered in his prime still because of his last two ho-hum HW wins, which were his first in how long? To me, this is a given victory for Lesnar. His real test is going to be against Nog or Mir 2.
As for Fedor/Couture, we already know how that would go, so who cares? Fedor would send Couture to the nursing home.

Kim is trash. First she turned Randy into a money hungry punk. Second she is a joke of a fighter, they put her against a girl they thought she would destroy and she got her jaw broken with one punch. Now she thinks she can prdict fights. Kim, I hope you kept the straw that you sucked your food through so Randy can use it when Brock breaks his jaw. Brock is a beast and Randy is going to over look him and get beat. Kim please give up fighting and keep your mouth shut on stuff you have no clue about. When Randy gets beat you will look stupid.

Oh man... HAHAHA I guess they haven't even watched the Herring fight yet. They still think he's some giant tomato can. They don't have a fucking clue what's about to happen in the cage. Couture is screwed.

dude forgot to get rid of the background music of all the clips he lifted before adding his own.

there's like 18 different songs played, three at a time.

What a piece of trash. Hopefully someone knocks this tard out on her next fight, she is so clueless. Her and her husband will be the official human Pinata's for '2008, mark my words

"He's no bigger or tougher than Gonzaga or Sylvia???"

I'm going to go ahead and say "BULLSHIT."

i hope sable doesn't respond. it's just not worth it. it's understandable to be a supportive partner, but let's let the fighters decide whether or not they wanna trash talk.
