Dana White: Brock Lesnar 'could go on to be the best heavyweight'

Props: The Sun


"It's such an interesting fight [between UFC Heavyweight Champion Randy Couture and Brock Lesnar] because Couture is so good at coming up with plans for finding weaknesses in guys' games and exposing them. But Lesnar's such a different animal, this guy is so big, so strong and so fast at that weight it's just phenomenal. For what he lacks in technique and knowledge, he makes up for in size, speed and power. Lesnar could go on to be the best heavyweight and the longest-reigning heavyweight -- who knows what could happen with him."

UFC President Dana White feels that former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) superstar Brock Lesnar could be "The Next Big Thing" the heavyweight division. So much so, in fact, that he has inserted his pay-per-view (PPV) cash cow into a title fight against recent hall of fame inductee and reigning heavyweight champion, Randy Couture, with just three professional bouts to his credit. The duo will main event the UFC 91: "Couture vs. Lesnar" show at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on November 15. The size difference between the two fighters is perhaps as great as the experience level, providing an interesting hook for the showdown that will determine what attribute is more important when fists start flying.
