MMA Rumor Mill: Brock Lesnar Injury Report a Hoax

Nate DoubleAnalyst ISeptember 27, 2008

Rumors were flying this weekend that Brock Lesnar sustained a hamstring strain during training and would be forced to pull out of his Nov. 15 UFC 91 heavyweight title fight against Randy Couture, but it turned out the whole thing was a prank played on Kim Couture. 

If the rumor had been true, then UFC 91 was about to look even more lackluster, as the Rampage Jackson vs. Wanderlei Silva fight has already been removed from the card. This would have made Kenny Florian vs. Joe Stevenson the main event, unless some bigger names were to be found on relatively short notice.
