Paulson is in his camp. He's not exactly going to air Brock out. Either way it's obvious from his pictures he doesn't weigh that much any more. I too would have preferred if Brock was handed a gimme rather than being thrown into the deep end considering he's coming off a long lay off that include major surgery.

Yes, and he could have taken all the steroids he wanted. Hell, if he wasn't fighting a Japanese guy he might not even have had to worry about getting KOed or submitted, depending on how much his new friends with the back tattoos and missing finger joints liked him.

At the press conference with Overeem today he looked pretty much like he always had.

He said he weighs 278 pounds.

UFC 141's Brock Lesnar on Weight Loss Rumors - 'I'm 278 lbs. Sorry for the Disappointment'

"I'm back!", [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] beckoned as he made his first public appearance since his surgery at the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. There were widespread rumors that he lost a bunch of weight, but as much as we can judge from seeing him here, the former heavyweight champion looked very much like his normal self.
Lesnar addressed these concerns during the conference, "What am I weighing now? I'm about 278 lbs," said the former heavyweight king, "Sorry for the disappointment."

"I avoided the surgery for as long as I could. It was just a major decision. When you've got to go under the knife and have someone take out our intestines, it's a big deal... I'm just trying to build confidence in my standup and be a well-rounded fighter. To come back and win this fight, and to win the UFC heavyweight championship back."
P.S. Your pictures don't phase me..

Nice quotes, but somehow I get the feeling that Scurla is still going to be 100% correct.

Brock's got them balls firmly in your mouth hasn't he If Brock told you he was never ongear you'd believe that too.
This guy was trained by Paul Heyman. Brock is a promotional machine. That'sthe first thing they learn at OVW and Brock excelled at it. Granted he certainly looks alot better in the conference than post surgery. But there's NO WAY he's 278lbs. That's hogwash and even Brock knows it otherwise he wouldn't have repeated that reporters question. Brock never weighed that much even when he was healthy and in the UFC. Even for his first MMA fight over in Japan he never weighed that much PRIOR to cutting weight.

Here's what Overeem said on ESPN:

“He’s a big guy, like me,” Overeem shrugged, after he and Lesnar squared off for a staredown on stage at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium. “I thought he was taller because of the UFC poster, but he was actually shorter than me.”

Now everyone knows Brock is 6ft 3 and Overeem is 6ft 5. But much like the WWE the UFC deliberately inflates stats to sell fights. Brock's had a whole career of that when he was billed as 300lbs in the WWE. Granted he wasn't far off that but he's not as tall as Overeem and probably weighs about the same as him.

I mean look at the picture in the article you posted. What's he wearing here? His best stiletto's?

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

An argument could be made that Brock actually looks taller. The UFC did the same thing to Shane Carwin and James Toney.
Interesting how you've been able to turn an innocuous post though on a guy who you clearly cheer lead into a 3 page debate on bullshit when that was never my intention. Clearly you're a valued ESB forum member. That's why you've just made my ignore list. Nice one buddy!

He needs to get back on that red meat and pop a few roids. Hes not been the same guy since the first surgery and I suspect he is finished as a fighter.

i have no clue why they tossed him in with someone who excels at brock's weakness, and is basically even bigger than brock at this point...seems like a dana white cash out on brock
