UFC 91: Brock Lesnar Vs Randy Couture Fight Video
With just 4 fights under his belt, the former WWE Star Brock Lesnar emerged as the new UFC Heavyweight Champion after taking down Randy Couture on Saturday at MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Size and age really does matter in the fight. Brock Lesnar, just 31 years old, at 6’3″ outweighed Randy Couture by 45 lbs and weighs just about the 265 lbs limit. Couture on the other hand is much older at 45 years old.

Early in the second round, one of those strikes landed. Lesnar stepped in with a short but massive elbow, which wobbled Couture. The 45-year-old UFC legend’s experience moved the fight against the fence, where he seemed to recover.
As the round wore on, the fighters moved around the Octagon, picking their shots. The game seemed to suit Couture, who landed a right hand that cut Lesnar’s eye. Lesnar’s power proved the great equalizer, however, as a straight right collapsed Couture to the mat.
Referee Mario Yamasaki gave Couture a good deal of time to recover, but Lesnar’s follow-up hammerfists forced the stoppage at 3:07.
