Randy Couture a Slight Favorite Over Brock Lesnar

Some sites have already released lines for the upcoming Randy Couture vs. Brock Lesnar showdown at UFC 91 and at least to open things up Randy is a slight favorite.

Odds from

Randy Couture    -140

Brock Lesnar      +110


Couture / Lesnar Fight goes 2:30 of Round 3    -280

Couture / Lesnar Fight does not go 2:30 of Round 3     +220

That is damn close to a pick 'em line for arguably the biggest fight in MMA history.  I couldn't be more amped than I am right now and we're still months away from fight night.  I can say, however, that I'm very tempted to put some money down on the fight going over 2:30 of Round 3.  I think there is a very good chance that this goes to a decision as Brock has yet to show much finishing ability and while I can see Randy winning I don't think he does it by stopping Lesnar early in the fight.

Just in case you wanted to see the difference in the matchmaking of the "unproven stars" in the UFC and EXC here are the odds for Kimbo vs. Ken Shamrock:

Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Fergusson   -600

Ken Shamrock    +400

The UFC absolutely OWNS every other American promotion at this point in every aspect from sheer deep talent in every division to compelling matchmaking on every show.
