Does Size Matter? Couture Says No

Randy Couture doesn’t appear concerned about the very substantial size difference between he and Brock Lesnar going into his November contest with the 265-pound behemoth. Lesnar, who actually has to cut weight to get down to 265 actually walks around at 295. Couture on the other hand started his career at light-heavyweight and has moved up as time and situation have dictated.

“Yesterday after practice I weighed 224.5 and I would suspect that walking into the fight I’ll weigh right around that,” Couture said. “Early in my career it was a concern. I don’t think I was technically prepared to deal with the size difference. But I think I’ve developed. I think you just have to be a little wiser.”
