(They should have included a can of soda for size comparison.)
With Brock Lesnar vs. Alistair Overeem, the UFC will arguably be presenting the most dynamic wrestler vs. striker battle that the heavyweight division has ever seen — but if you really want to hook the casual fans, it’s a lot easier to say “gawd damn these sons-a-bitches are huuuuuge!”
Which they are, of course. This might be the first time that Lesnar will look out-sized in the cage. And after Brock’s year-long illness layoff, Alistair isn’t exactly the ideal return opponent. But hey, this is MMA, anything can happen, etc.
UFC 141: Lesnar vs. Overeem goes down December 30th at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, and will also feature Donald Cerrone vs. Nate Diaz, Alexander Gustafsson vs. Vladimir Matyushenko, and Jon Fitch vs. Johny Hendricks.
