Last week, the internet was ablaze with the news that UFC heavyweight
newcomer Brock Lesnar had suffered a hamstring injury and would have to
pull out of his planned November 15th title shot against returning
heavyweight champion and UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture. The
story traveled quickly, as the original source has a history of
releasing credible information. Roughly two hours after the story
leaked, however, it was confirmed as being a hoax. Someone called the
offices of Xtreme Couture and, pretending to be Lorenzo Fertitta, told
Kim Couture that Lesnar was pulling out of the fight. I've had
a strange feeling this week. Something seemed off about the way the
story was revealed and then quickly refuted. It smelled like a
cover-up. The source for the original Lesnar injury story has been
right on 100 percent of the stories he has broken thus far, and someone
with that kind of credibility typically deserves the benefit of the
doubt. With that in mind, I decided to do some checking on my own today in an effort to find out the truth behind the stories. Here's
what I know: Brock Lesnar did, in fact, suffer a hamstring injury last
week. I don't know how severe it is, and I likely won't be able to find
out because the camp has closed ranks and won't answer questions about
it. Lesnar and his coaches made the decision to fight through the
injury, so I suspect that it's not a major injury of the type that
sidelined Chuck Liddell earlier this year.Lesnar is legendary
for wrestling through pain, and I have a feeling that nothing short of
a torn ACL would keep him from fighting Couture in November.I
also discovered one more piece of news that hasn't been reported
anywhere: Randy Couture is also nursing an injury. I talked to two
different people today who would be very familiar with what's currently
happening in Randy's camp, and both of them say he's not 100 percent.
One source said it was an upper body problem, while the other said he's
having shoulder issues.If Lesnar's hamstring injury is severe
enough to limit his mobility, it gives Couture an edge that he
previously didn't have. Lesnar is bigger, stronger and faster than
Couture, but a bad hamstring could limit the amount of control he can
apply to Couture on the mat. It could also limit his speed and mobility.On
the flip side, Couture will be wrestling and pushing against a man who
will outweigh him in the cage by 60 pounds, and that will put
incredible pressure on Couture's injured shoulder for the duration of
the fight.Brock Lesnar vs. Randy Couture will easily be the
biggest and most-hyped fight of the year, and these injuries add a
brand new wrinkle to the stories surrounding UFC 91.
