Why Booking Lesnar/Couture Is The Right Move

I’ve been reading comments on other websites from fans, and a great deal of the comments are negative.  Some fans have called this match up WWE ish, disrespectful to Nog/Mir, and comments like Brock Lesnar doesn’t deserve a title shot.  While I can understand those sentiments…you must look at the big picture in regards to this situation.

  • Couture is 45 yrs old…but still bankable via PPV
  • Who else could Couture fight?
  • Lesnar has the tools to beat Couture

Look the contract that Couture has signed is a 3 fight deal, and Zuffa must maximize those opportunities to the fullest.  He’s still a bankable PPV draw and couple that with the angle of him sitting out a year with a fighter with Lesnar’s presence equals lightning in a bottle.  It’s not like Lesnar hasn’t proven that he is for real at this point after demolishing a true veteran of the sport in Heath Herring.

Who else could Couture fight?  A lot of money has been invested in TUF 8 with Mir/Nog as coaches and filming of that show has been COMPLETED.  What…are they gonna just throw that whole show down the drain just for ONE fight?  That would be a stupid way to waste money.  Furthermore, the winner of the Couture/Lesnar fight will fight the winner of Mir/Nogueira…so if Couture and Nogueira hold up their end of the bargain…that fight will happen.
