Randy Couture: Brock Lesnar's Antics Not What UFC Is About

Former UFC heavyweight champion Randy Couture was, like almost every mixed martial arts fan I've heard from in the last three days, disappointed in the way Brock Lesnar acted after beating Frank Mir at UFC 100. And Couture sounds like he's angling for a shot at Lesnar himself.

"I didn't really expect him to lose his mind after the fight, but he did," Couture said of Lesnar. "That's just not the kind of thing our sport is known for, those kinds of antics and those kinds of comments."

Couture also took a shot at Lesnar for saying he planned to get on top of his wife, Rena Mero, who's better known as the WWE star and former Playboy cover girl Sable.

"I'm thinking, What, is that a special occasion?," Couture said. "You're married to Sable, you'd think that'd be happening all the time."

Although UFC President Dana White has said he expects the winner of the Shane Carwin-Cain Velasquez fight at UFC 104 to get the next shot at Lesnar, Couture came across like he's itching to have a rematch with Lesnar, who beat him in November. If Couture beats Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira next month at UFC 102, I think there's a good chance we'll get to see Couture-Lesnar 2.

And Couture seems like he's confident he'd do better in a rematch than he did the first time around, saying of Lesnar, "Somebody's going to kick your butt."
