Kudos to ESPN for Recognizing the Importance of Brock Lesnar-Randy Couture

After the big news broke yesterday that Randy Couture would return to UFC to fight Brock Lesnar, I wondered whether the mainstream media would recognize the significance of the news. Most newspapers that I've checked didn't cover the story at all, but ESPN has done solid work today, having Couture and Lesnar as guests on Mike and Mike in the Morning, First Take and SportsCenter. Here's a look:

That was Josh Elliott -- who told me when I interviewed him that he's a big MMA fan -- interviewing both Lesnar and Couture.

ESPN is sometimes criticized for ignoring the sports leagues it doesn't have contracts with, but the Worldwide Leader gave plenty of attention to UFC today, and with good reason.
