Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Lesnar Sharpening Ground Game, But Mir Would Still Rather Fight Him Than Couture

(Brock Lesnar will get his gross sweat all over you. Look out, Randy.)

Brock Lesnar is preparing for Randy Couture with his jiu-jitsu coach Rodrigo “Comprido” Medeiros, who as you might recall was the man to help Lesnar figure out the mystery of the kneebar after his loss to Frank Mir. Comprido tells that Lesnar is training at a new academy, mixing it up with world class submissions guys like himself and decorated wrestlers like Cole Konrad. As for a prediction, Comprido isn’t shy:

“I know Couture is a very strategic fighter, but I believe Brock will take this fight in the first round.”

Somehow Frank Mir is unmoved by this endorsement, claiming that he’d still rather rematch Lesnar than take on Couture in the finals of this so-called heavyweight “tournament”:

I’d rather fight Brock than Randy. Randy has been dealing with MMA for a lot longer and he knows how to fight off submissions to a greater degree than Brock does. Brock’s only trained for two or three years. I’ve been doing it a lot longer.

But Randy’s ability to stop my submissions would be about the same as my ability to stop his takedowns. He’s been wrestling for 18 years – I’ve been doing martial arts since I was four, so I’ve been practicing for 25 years. For him to catch up on the submissions game is going to be one heck of a feat.

That’s all very interesting, Frank. But maybe you should think about how you’re going to get past Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira first.

Funny- Frank told me he favors lesnar unless it goes 4-5 rounds. This was last week.

Look, even if Lesnar rolls through Couture it would not prove that Lesnar is what is hyping him up to be (kimbo status), but that Randy Couture is in fact... 45 years old. Let's face it, Captain America or not, age has to start taking effect at some point. So if Lesnar does beat Couture... Congrats... you beat the oldest man in the game...

I got Randy by rear naked choke 2 minutes in round one. It's gonna look like the movie 8 seconds but he's gonna pull it out.

Derly - LHWs aren't 60 pounds lighter than Kimbo (maybe some LWs are). In fact I'd hazard a guess that some LHWs weigh more than Kimbo.
Derly- November 9, 2008 at 8:12 am
I love how in numerous articles, people always compare Kimbo to LHW's in their comments. They always mention Kimbo vs [Some LHW]. I guess his loss to Petruzelli was that impressionable that Kimbo shouldn't be fighting anyone his size, but rather guys that weigh in 60 pounds lighter.

Anyways, I'd love to agree with Anon and say that Lesnar will be crying. Seeing giant dudes cry is just hilarious. Reminds me of Bob Sapp vs Cro Cop. Wasn't it a straight punch to the jaw that got Sapp into the fetal position?

OLD MAN Strength will Prevail! haha, Randy will dirty box and then pick up the big cock and body slam him and breaks his nose like he did gonzagas'. Then ground and pound brock until he is broken mentally and cry like the big bitch he is; that or brock will win with a lucky punch ahah

gotta say lesnar wins a unanimous decision. couture has trouble against bigger opponents and lesnar is WAY bigger.
F__K KIMBo- November 9, 2008 at 2:54 am
kimbo is the biggest joke in all of mma i would bet anything that Jardine would make him look like a bitch

UFC fan and WAR BONG really dont watch mma do they? They hear about the top dogs in the fighting world and just agree and continue on with their sad little lives. Lesnars not much now, he may not be the best heavyweight fighter in the world. But guaranteed hes going to criple couture, and when Fedor finally sucks it up and fights for reasonable money. Lesnar will give Fedor a run for his money.
Derly- November 8, 2008 at 11:47 pm
Dana should ship in Bob Sapp for a single fight against Lesnar. Don't even make a weight class for it, just make it a fight.
WAR BONG- November 8, 2008 at 11:39 pm
i see the disease is spreading nicely.
UFC fan- November 8, 2008 at 11:25 pm
I dont know who is more delusional: Fedor fan or Lesner fan, but I tell you this, if those 2 fought it would be the biggest name fighter Fedor has fought in years.
HA! Fucking nobody fedor against nobody poser roid-head Lesner, talk about a fight of futility....and the winner gets KIMBO!
WAR BONG- November 8, 2008 at 11:04 pm
you fukin dildos sayin Lesner would beat Fedor need to immediately hand your fuked up brains (i have never used a term more loosely) over to medical science so they can find whatever fuked up disease you got and exterminate it for the sake of all humanity...i bet people get measurably stupider when they come within fifty feet of your dumb ass...and probably never fully recover.

peace and love...peace and love.

UFC fan- November 8, 2008 at 10:04 pm
last time george fought BJ, it was a split decision win for "rush" this time he will submit penns useless ass.

As for lesner, I look forward to seeing him tap like a bitch.

Brock is da REAL DEAL fellas, he is way too big and strong for capt. america, for christ sake he is in his mid 40’s, and hasn’t fought in over a year. The next mega mega fight is gonna be BROCK VS. FEDOR, with BROCK knocking him the fuck out in round 1!!"

I love it. I agree and if fedor gets outta that shit contract then yeah brock will steam roll both of them.
