Brock Lesnar will be the focus of an "E: 60" special on ESPN in anticipation of his world title fight against heavyweight champion Randy Couture at UFC 91: "Couture vs. Lesnar" at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on November 15.

The hour-long episode that includes Lesnar will debut tomorrow (Tuesday, October 21) at 7 p.m. ET.
Lesnar is a high-profile former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) superstar who has transitioned to mixed martial arts. He has three professional bouts to his credit (2-1), two of which were inside the Octagon.

He scored his first UFC win over Heath Herring via unanimous decision at UFC 87: "Seek and Destroy" in August. Lesnar dropped his UFC debut to Frank Mir at UFC 81: "Breaking Point" earlier this year.

Despite his inexperience and average record, Lesnar was granted a title shot against one of the sport’s most experienced fighters in Couture -- a recent UFC Hall of Fame inductee and MMA legend.

It’s a match up that is being billed as, "the biggest fight in the history of the UFC." The winner of the bout will go on to face the winner of the UFC 92 bout between interim title holder Antonio Rodrigo "Minotauro" Nogueira and Frank Mir to declare an undisputed division champion.

"E: 60" reporter Tom Farrey is the lead on the Lesnar feature, providing a detailed account of his childhood and meteoric rise into the public eye. His successful WWE career and unsuccessful bid to become and NFL player will likely also be integrated into the program.

For those who have never seen an episode of "E: 60" this is definitely the time to check it out -- these are often very well done. The network knocked the MMA-related segments on Lee Murray, Gina Carano and Kimbo Slice out of the park in the past.

So do your best to tune in to ESPN tomorrow (Tuesday, October 21) at 7 p.m. ET.
