A healthy Lesnar weighs-in, prepares for number one contender fight

The larger than life persona paired with a larger than life physique. Brock Lesnar is set to face equally mammoth heavyweight Alistair Overeem Friday night at UFC 141.
Publish date:

After more than a year away from the sport, having twice battled a severe case of diverticultis, the 34-year-old is ready to return to the octagon.

Thursday's pre-fight weigh-in went off without a hitch as Lesnar came in at 266 pounds, which is within the grace weight afforded to heavyweight competitors.

I know what you're thinking, "I could take him."

Well wait until you get a glimpse of his opponent: 263-pound Dutch kickboxer Alistair Overeem. A real daffodil.
