Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Photo of the Day: Vitor Belfort is Almost as Big as Brock Lesnar

("Has anyone ever told you that you look like a skinny Brock Lesnar?")

Either his Viking beard made him seem a bit bigger than he was or former UFC heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar has lost a few pounds since losing his belt to Cain Velasquez at UFC 121 in October. Keep in mind that Brock weighed in at 264 pounds for that fight and Belfort has to make 185 by Saturday for his middleweight championship bout with Anderson Silva. There doesn’t seem to be a 79-pound difference between them.

Let’s hope it’s because Brock is skinny and not because Vitor is still well above his normal pre-cut weight. The photo was taken on Friday, meaning "The Phenom" *should* have been somewhere between 205-215 pounds.

Having had weight issues on more than one occasion in the past, forcing promotions to allow his fights to be contested at catch weights, it would be a shame to see Belfort pull a Paulo Filho and make the bout a non-title affair, especially if he were to beat Silva.

Brocks cycle wore off.... give him some time.

Isn't it obvious? Belfort's got an uncircumcised Black Mamba snakin' around in his shorts.

Looks like Brock is hanging out at Randys gym! Maybe that is were he will get ready for his next fight!?

Brock does look much leaner in the face that I'm used to seeing him, maybe just the lack of beard, but he is still 3-4 inches taller than Victor and obviously heavier. I would like to see Anderson on the other side of Brock for comparison.

Anyone seen the vid of Arlovski doing the 300 kick with Jon Jones? Jones the LHW looks much bigger than AA the HW. Reminds me of Anthony Johnson on MMA Live.

Almost as big? Lol. Yeah the same way Edgar is almost as big as GSP.

It is just the angle of the camera. Brock is a good 4" taller, and vitor looks like about a 200 pounder. Enough with the wild speculation, CP, it will not get Anderson to let you massage his feet!

Brock came back from his vacation in Brazil with a 'domestic partner'. He doesn't know any english and Brock wants to keep it that way.

Yes, shedding a few pounds should make Brock into less of a fucking pussy. That's the ticket!

Brock looks like he could eat vitor in that pic.. and Vitor looks like he's aware of this, and is making mental notes of all the exits.

RwilsonR made me lol...that was funny shit bro
BigPhil- February 1, 2011 at 10:24 am
Holy crap! I didn't know Brock had a neck!

Brock is looking at the camera, but Vitor is gazing longingly at the door... expecting Jesus... every day.

Goog- HA

It's possible Lesnar may be dropping size to move a little quicker to acclimate to faster guys like Cain and Dos Santos, which is really what he needs, not more bulk.

It's an illusion as Brock is just very far away... with a glimmer of door smashing in his eyes.

Brock looks bigger in this pic to me, too. Not to mention he's taller than Vitor; a guy that wide at his height weighs more than a guy that wide at Vitor's height.

Still, credit where it's due: Vitor is looking jacked. Like middleweight Pat Barry jacked.

Based on this photo... what is Lesnar doing with his left hand?
PERPATRAITOR- February 1, 2011 at 9:40 am
Brock is maybe going for cardio now!?!? That can be dangerous...he needs to work on footwork and balance. Brock smash!

Looks like someone from CP took good notes at the Mike Goldberg "Everything Else Is Virtually Identical" seminar.

Based on this photo... how much does each of them have in their wallet?

"whatever you do Vitor dont stare at his Velasquez scar! He's real sensative about it. He hasnt eaten in weeks."

I wonder if his "chest knife" has gone flacid.

finally, we find out the truth about new dad. he came here from his previous gig of guessing your weight, age and birthdate at carnivals and county fairs?

Brock looks about 80 pounds larger in this pic. I don't get it.
