UFC 121 is just a few days away, but Lesnar has been reported to be walking around at weigh-in weight for a week now. An MMA blogger reports:
Brock Lesnar is reportedly at 265 as we speak so there will be no cutting weight for the UFC Heavyweight Champion for next Saturday’s eagerly anticipated title defense against undefeated Cain Velásquez. I see this as good for Lesnar fans because already being at the required fighting weight will prevent Brock from having to tweak his diet or training regime prior to the fight in Anaheim.
Even though Lesnar will fight lighter than he originally fought in UFC, the former WWE Champion, NCAA All American and National Champion is still beastly strong which could be an key factor in his next encounter in the Octagon. Point is that Lesnar has lost no strength with his lesser weight plus Brock’s cardio, one would assume, will be enhanced by not having to carry so much mass in what is expected to be an extremely competitive fight.
If Velásquez’s camp thinks that Lesnar is going to ‘gas’ after a round or two then they need to re-evaluate their strategy because that isn’t happening.
We look forward to this next challenge for Lesnar equally as much as we are for Velasquez. Both are top notch fighters that are maintaining the abolsute excitement in the heavyweight division. Sit back and enjoy the PPV as these two make a fight of it!
