UFC 91: Brock Lesnar KOs Randy Couture, Wins UFC Heavyweight Championship

The legendary UFC heavyweight champion Randy Couture lost in his comeback to Brock Lesnar in the main event at UFC 91 tonight in Las Vegas, as the younger, stronger man delivered a series of brutal punches and won a second-round TKO.

In the first round, they had a rough, tough wrestling match in which Lesnar spent more time in the dominant position, but neither man did a lot of damage. But in the second, Lesnar landed a brutal punch that knocked Couture down, pounced on him and continued bashing him until the referee had no choice but to step in.

It was the 45-year-old Couture’s first fight in 15 months, and he looked rusty. It was a bit of the passing of the guard.

Couture came into the fight with a professional record of 16-8. Lesnar entered with a pro record of 2-1.
