UFC 91: Prediction - Randy Couture vs. Brock Lesnar

UFC 91 is this Saturday. The main event is Randy Couture vs. Brock Lesnar.

I'm a Couture fan, because he uses Panantukan (Filipino boxing) somewhat mixed in with his Greco-Roman/MMA game LOL

Randy's savvy/experience/skills IMO is too much for Brock's brute g&p... sure he was All-American, but that's straight up wrestling and not MMA. Couture by takedown repeatedly and G&P and Lesnar taps... or I think Randy knows basic subs like the armbar, RNC, and leglock/heelhook, and as he takes Lesnar down and starts his G&P, Brock gives Couture his back for the RNC to end it. But at the very least, Randy by decision, but I don't see it going the distance.

On the flip side, I think the only way Brock wins has to be early like a fluke hit that dazed Randy and Randy falls stunned... maybe Brock by decision but I find it hard to see him being able to decision Randy given their disparate MMA skill levels. If Lesnar doesn't knock Couture out, and it goes past the first round, I think Randy will win.
