    Default Couture is ready to poke the bear with a stick

    Randy Couture has a good sense of humor when it comes to his UFC 91 opponent Brock Lesnar. Couture has seen Lesnar lose his cool on several occasions both in person during a conference call and on ESPN's E60 piece.

    On the conference call, Lesnar told the media to asking about (expletive) Fedor. Lesnar, who is built like an NFL offensive lineman at 6-3, 290 pounds, stormed off the set during the ESPN's piece when Tom Farrey began to ask a steroid question. There's no doubt that the guy UFC president Dana White once called a bear has a short fuse.

    'The Natural' told Yahoo! Sports in a video interview that part of his plan is to see if he can tap into that Lesnar temper. Couture's camp gave a suggestion to get Lesnar to lose his head even before the fight starts:

    "Some of the guys were saying when you guys face off and touch gloves you should whisper 'steroids' and watch his blood pressure go up."

    Couture did say that he thinks that UFC and MMA does a great job policing steroid use.

    Brock is going to beat Randy to within an inch of his life. Randy does not realize what he is about to get himself into. He is going to wish he had stayed retired and let stunt men do his actions scenes in movies. I used to love Randy, but it will be my pleasure to witness the man from Gresham, Or get torn to pieces by the unstopable freight train.
    Lets go Brent!

    Dont you think thats a little harsh...? I think Lesnar will probably win too, but Randy is a classy guy, and a great fighter.
    Gold is an idiot.

    Couture definitely could submit Brock, but that's about the only chance he's got.

    We'll know next Saturday. I have a feeling my prediction is spot on.

    I assume this will be a 5 rounder?

    Who do you guys think will have the advantage if it goes into the 4th or 5th round?

    In Brock's earlier fights, he came out in a frenzy.

    I wonder if he could pace himself for 5 rounds?

    Brock looked fresh after hammering Herring around for 15 minutes. Randy, when pushed by big, strong wrestlers, tends to wear down. I would expect Lesnar to have more in the tank if it should go to the championship rounds. That's provided that he's applied presure to Couture and made him carry his weight.

    Keep in mind you are thinking something is dumb, without knowing why it is.
