Couture To Face Lesnar At UFC 91, Lesnar Not Impressed With Fedor

The expected announcement that happened today about Randy Couture returning to the UFC to take on Brock Lesnar took place this afternoon, according to MMANews.com; what perhaps made the announcement even more dramatic was a statement made by Lesnar regarding current WAMMA heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko.

During the conference call to announce the matchup, Lesnar was asked about Emelianenko and his response was shocking, to say the least as Lesnar said,

“Who gives a shit about Fedor Emelianenko? I’m sick and tired of sitting on the phone listening about Fedor. Who f***ing gives a shit?”

I think it is safe to say that Lesnar pissed off a boatload of people who are huge fans of Emelianenko while at the same time made himself the biggest heel in MMA with that statement.  But at the same time, Lesnar is a huge draw for the UFC and the expected Couture-Lesnar bout could very well be the biggest money-maker in UFC history, with UFC president Dana White going so far as to say that UFC 91 could very well pull in between 1 million to 1.5 million buys – which would be a MMA pay-per-view record.
