When UFC heavyweight Brock Lesnar (2-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) was brought into
the organization less than a year ago, he was lauded as much for his
ability to hype a fight as for his physical prowess.But less
than a week before the gargantuan wrestling virtuoso will fight for the
UFC's heavyweight title against MMA legend Randy Couture on Nov. 15,
Lesnar seems less focused on pre-fight antics than the task at hand."I'm
at peace with my life," Lesnar said in a recent "UFC 91: Couture vs.
Lesnar" media conference call. "I'm at peace with God. I'm at peace
with my family, and I'm at peace in the fight game right now. Whether I
come across cocky or confident, take it either way that you think it's
coming across. I'm enjoying my life, and I've had a great training
camp."Many have openly questioned why Lesnar was given this
opportunity considering he's just three fights into his MMA career. The
Minnesota native understands the criticism, but believes anyone in his
position would have done the same."I can't really say much to
it because we're in a little too deep now, aren't we?" Lesnar asked.
"This is a once in a life opportunity for me, and anybody that would be
in my position would never have turned this fight down."(UFC
President) Dana (White) and Zuffa (LLC) and the UFC, they put on fights
that people want to see. And Brock Lesnar vs. Rady Couture for the
heavyweight title is a fight that people are going to tune in and want
to see. You can't take that away from myself or Randy or from the
company. This company puts on fights that people are interested in
watching."White has openly stated that he believes this will be
the highest selling pay-per-view in the history of the UFC. The former
WWE star said he is unconcerned with the potentially massive viewing
audience."I've had the opportunity to wrestle in front of
72,000 people," Lesnar said. "That's entertainment, but you're still in
front of a large crowd. I've headlined many pay-per-views. This will
just be another one."With his performance -- win or lose --
Lesnar hopes to finally shed the "WWE import" tag that has been his
moniker throughout his budding MMA career."I'm here to
represent amateur wrestling," Lesnar said. "I'm an amateur wrestler at
heart, and I always will be. What it does for professional wrestling, I
really don't care. Will there be other pro wrestlers that can make this
transition? Absolutely not. None of them have the background that I do."Lesnar
will own a considerable size advantage in the bout. And while Couture
has faced sizable athletes in recent memory in Tim Sylvia and Gabriel
Gonzaga -- both of whom he defeated -- Lesnar said it is his wrestling
background that makes this matchup particularly challenging for the
current champ."We're going to push around 230 pounds," Lesnar
said. "Randy's got to push around 275 pounds. There's one thing for me
that I understand very well. Randy has fought big guys, but they don't
know to wrestle. There's a difference, and Randy knows that, too."I'm
not just blowing smoke. I know how to wrestle. The bigger guys that
Randy has fought -- which is Tim and Gonzaga -- aren't half the athlete
that I am as a wrestler, or as a fighter I don't think."At 45
years old, Couture has been picked to lose seemingly every time he
steps into the cage. While "The Natural" will enjoy an unprecedented
gap in experience, Lesnar's physical tools once again have many MMA
pundits declaring the bout over before it even begins.Lesnar is not among them."I
wouldn't even consider Randy as an underdog," Lesnar said. "Randy is a
tough son of a bitch. Randy is not an underdog against Gonzaga, nor was
he an underdog against Tim Sylvia. I never thought that he was in any
of those fights. Randy is a world class athlete, regardless of his age."Instead, Lesnar has prepared himself to go tor-to-toe with an MMA legend fro 25 minutes."Everybody
has always said that Randy Couture has great conditioning," Lesnar
said. "We're going to test that. I pushed myself to the farthest
extremes in this camp. I'm not fighting a slouch, and I know that."And while the fight is too close to call for some, Lesnar said he's ready for the time of his life."There's
one thing of having experience, and there's another of just not knowing
any different, either," Lesnar said. "And I just don't know any
different. I've never fought five rounds, but I don't know any
different either."It's kind of a toss-up for me. I just put my
head down and go. There's one thing for sure that will shine through on
[Nov. 15]: I'll be having a lot of fun. I'll be enjoying myself that
evening. And I'm coming there for a fight, and I'm going to have fun
doing it."I hope he brings everything, including the kitchen sink."
