Randy did an amazing job in his fight with Lesnar.
Would you EVER put a fighter that weighs a mere 145 pounds against a 200 pound fighter? Or, take someone out of the 155 pound weight class and pit them against someone at the 205... would that be a fair fight? Definately not...
Well that's what happened last night. Randy took on someone that outweighed him by a solid 55 pounds. AND.... he managed to give Lesnar a good fight! He even rocked Lesnar once, cutting him above his eye... and Lesnar needed 5 stitches to close it up.
Anyway you look at it... Randy is a relevant fighter that deserves respect from any opponent. And... as big and powerful as Lesnar is... Lesnar still had complete respect for Randy's ability. Every fight Lesnar was in (prior to this one), he was like a freight train. Lesnar just recklessly plowed into his opponents without fear of their ability, (that's why he got caught in a knee bar by Mir)... and Lesnar pummeled the shit out of everybody. Well, did you notice how reserved and controlled he was against Randy? Definitely a sign of respect for Randy's ability.
I haven't even mentioned that Randy is 14 years older than Lesnar... that's almost a decade and a half!
Anyway... Randy Couture is a relevant and formiddable opponent and I hope he keeps fighting.
That being said... WOW... Lesnar is just f'ing amazing! I can't wait to see him re-match against Mir...
