Couture Says Being Elusive Key To Avoiding Lesnars Power

Randy Couture recently spoke to and offered the following on what he thinks he needs to do to beat Brock Lesnar at UFC 91 in November:

“When you get stuck underneath those guys, I don’t care how good your jiu-jitsu is, they’re not going to give up submissions, they’re not going to get caught,” he said. “So now you’re down there underneath a big guy getting hit. I think I switched back to that wrestling mentality where when I get on my back, I want to scramble, fight, scrap, do whatever I have to do to get off my back, just like I would in a wrestling match.”

“I think that’s something I have to be ready for, (to) be elusive and stick and move, force him to miss and force him to charge, come after me and be able to move out of the way,” he said.

“He is what he is,” said Couture. “He’s a big, strong, athletic guy, and that’s the strength that he’s going to try to rely on. The rest of the changes in technique are going to be fairly subtle. He’s only had a couple months since the last fight. There’s not a lot of time to develop a bunch of new tricks. That’s the reality of the situation.”
