Brock Lesnar defeated Randy “The Natural” Couture in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 91 Heavyweight Championship Match on Saturday, Nov. 15. Held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, UFC 91 was billed as the “Biggest Fight in UFC History,” and marked the return of three-time UFC heavyweight champion Couture to the ring.
In front of a rumbling sold out crowd, Lesnar greeted Couture with havoc from the first ring of the bell, turning one of this year’s most anticipated Octagon throw-downs into a match of legendary proportions. Although Lesnar is a relative newcomer to ultimate fighting, joining the UFC in October 2007, his record is an impressive 3-1-0.
As the heavyweight champion of UFC 91, Lesnar will go on to fight the winner of UFC 92, which pits UFC interim heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira against former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir. Lesnar, and the unfortunate victor of UFC 92, will bruise knuckles for the title of undisputed UFC heavyweight champion in early 2009.
