UFC 91: Randy Couture a Slight Favorite Over Brock Lesnar in Heavyweight Title Fight

After more than a year out of the Octagon, UFC heavyweight champion Randy Couture will return in November to take on the inexperienced but hugely talented Brock Lesnar at UFC 91. So who's going to win?

The early betting line indicates that Couture is a slight favorite -- and that it's expected to go past the halfway point of the five-round title fight. These are the odds from Bodog:
Who will win the fight between Randy Couture and Brock Lesnar?

Randy Couture -160
Brock Lesnar +130

Will the fight between Randy Couture and Brock Lesnar go past 2:30 of Round 3?

Yes -280
No +220

I'm a little surprised that Couture isn't a more significant favorite, seeing as he's the champion and Lesnar has only fought three times in his career. But I guess the combination of Couture's age and his ring rust after more than a year out of the fight game, and Lesnar's superior size dominant performance against Heath Herring make this a close fight in the eyes of the betting public. My money is on Couture.
