Randy Couture Returns
After over a year of contract dispute with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Randy “the natural” Couture returns to the octagon. He will be headlining the main event at UFC 91 on November 15 to defend his Heavyweight championship. He will be taking on what many consider the next big thing, Brock Lesner. Lesner who is 2-1 in his professional fight career is coming off a dominating performance against Heath Hearing, will now attempt to step up and fight a legend in the Mix Martial Arts world. The 45 year old Couture (15-8) has an emeses amount of ring experience compare to the new comer Lesner. While Lesner will is slightly larger 6’3 265 lbs versus 6’2 220lbs Randy has beaten larger opponents most notably Tim Sylvia (almost 7”) to win his title back at UFC 68 in March 2007. The question on most people mind is why is Lesner getting the 1st title shot? Should the Interim champion Antonio Nogueira get the first chance? He is the Champion while Randy was gone. Has Randy year away from the ring show? Will Lenser be able to overcome the experience of Couture? We will all have to wait till November 15th to find out the answer. This fight could be a sign of the changing of the guard in the Heavy weight division.
