Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight titleholder Randy “The Natural” Couture returns to the Octagon taking on Brock Lesnar in a five-round title bout in the main event.
The crowd chanted, “Randy, Randy, Randy…” as Couture stepped on the scales. Lesnar was met with boos.
“I’m just ready to get in the Octagon and take that belt away from Randy tomorrow night,” Lesnar said after weighing in. “I just visualize my hand being raised. That’s all I’ve got to say.”
“This is certainly one of my biggest challenges. Brock’s a huge guy. He’s a great athlete and I’m excited as hell to be here,” commented Couture. “It’s not really about accomplishment at this point. It’s about competing and doing what I love to do and that’s fight.”
Kenny Florian and Joe Stevenson are matched up in a lightweight bout that carries a lot of implications in the 155-pound division.
