Can You Hear Me Now?
This is a line that some of you may be familiar with. If you aren't, you haven't had the chance of watching Brock Lesnar on UFC. Last night there was a pay-per-view fight for the Heavyweight Title between Brock Lesnar and Randy Couture. So naturally Eric and I had to get it. We invited a few people over, had some good food and watched some good fights. Some of you may be asking what is so important about Brock Lesnar? Well, Brock kinda grew up down the road from me in a sense. He went to school in the next town over that was only 20 miles from my parents' farm. I think we might have even gone to CCD (catechism) classes together when we were younger. Anyways, back to the fight. Brock towers over the guy he's fighting. Randy Couture is only 220 lbs and stands 6'2" while Brock is 270 lbs and stands 6'3". I don't think these heights are correct though because Brock really towered over Randy. Weight wasn't the only think that was a major difference. Randy is 45 years old, while Brock is only 31. Round 1 was a very good round with both of them showing strengths and weaknesses. Round 2 is where it all happened. Brock caught Randy offguard and it was them his for the taking. The punch floored Randy and Brock got on top of him and started wailing away. Randy didn't have a chance. If you get a chance to see the fight it is worth watching. I can just imagine the excitement around Webster, SD today. Nothing like a hometown boy making it, especially with a Title belt around his waist. Good job Brock! Make South Dakota proud.
