Brock Lesnar looks like a heavyweight champ. He's a genetic freak at 6-foot-4 and 285 pounds. His opponent, the actual UFC heavyweight champ, has never intimidated opponents with his build or size. Lesnar has said on several occasions that Couture won't be able to match his power and athleticism. In his first discussion with the media this week before UFC 91, Lesnar inferred that Couture also looked kind of lousy:
"By the looks of it, Randy looks like he took a year off."
Yahoo's Dan Wetzel then asked Lesnar to clarify:
"You tell me," said a chuckling Lesnar. "Take a picture from now and a year ago when he fought Gonzaga, I think it's two different Randys."

Lesnar was quick to mention that he's not underestimating Couture. Listen here to the entire 12 minute media session with Lesnar. He twice refused to answer questions about his antics after the win over Heath Herring where he went into WWE entertainer mode.
