"Obviously I have a lot of respect for Brock Lesnar's wrestling ability. He was an NCAA champion, which is an elite group of individuals. I don't think it was a wise choice to jump in and fight a former heavyweight champion. He has the potential to be a legitimate MMA contender. But we won't know until he fights legitimate MMA competition."

-- Randy Couture tells the Los Angeles Times about his thoughts on the heavyweight fight between Frank Mir and Brock Lesnar at UFC 81: "Breaking Point" tomorrow (February 2) at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. For those keeping score "The Natural" has now tabbed Tim Sylvia and it appears Frank Mir as winners this weekend. Feel free to lay down some wood over at with the MMA prediction wisdom of Couture.
