Don't have cable
I normally go to a Sports Bar to watch 'em... usually at Nationals in Torrance. If you're in town and you're interested let me know, Ben!
I think Couture is the far better fighter. If he can submit Brock, I will be impressed. I voted Lesner just based on SHEER brute strength. I am into martial arts myself and I am a big proponent of the fact that a small person can beat a larger person if they are skilled enough. I also took physics though and it doesn't look good for Couture.
I really want Couture to pull it off though. I would hate for some big physical guy to come into the UFC and dominate based on his size.
I wonder what type of politics there will be after the fight too. Couture is STILL technically the champion. But then you have Mir and Noguiera fighting later. The next heavyweight fight will HAVE to be between the two winners in order to have a legitimate champion.
What art do you practice? I'm a Judoka... but I haven't practiced in a few months. Want to start again this winter. In Judo they always stress the fact that size and strength doesn't always matter so I agree with you in that sense. It was even proven when Brock fought Mir...
But I still think Brock is going to win this fight!
From my understanding the fight between Mir and Noguiera will determine who fights the winner of the Brock vs. Couture battle in which both titles will be absorbed into one championship title. The heavyweight action has been almost non-existent lately (due to contract issues with the "reigning champion" Couture) hopefully this kick starts that weight class as there is a lot of talent out there and IMO I think the weight class was being held back due to Couture's Hollywood movie-making...
