Now that the Brock Lesnar-Shane Carwin UFC heavyweight championship match is officially happening at UFC 106, we thought we’d go ahead and compare some key stats. As you can see, they’re both around the same size (* denotes, well, that’s what he weighs in at, but probably not what he weighs on fight night), with about the same reach. Carwin has more total MMA experience, but has logged less actual Octagon time. They both have NCAA national wrestling titles, though at significantly different levels.
The big difference? Number of successfully resolved feuds with Cage Potato. The mental toughness and fortitude that a fighter gains from that baptism by fire is not to be discounted.
