Pro MMA Radio interview with Brock Lesnar

We are now less than two weeks away from what is being billed as “the biggest fight in UFC history.”  That is an enormous title to live up to; but for different reasons, if there are two MMA fighters who can live up to the challenge it is these two Octagon warriors.  On the one hand we have Randy “the Natural” Couture; the wise and weathered veteran who has seen it all, been through it all, and sits upon the throne as King of the UFC.
