Wonderfully put. And yay!
Nice match-up in a few ways. Good clash of styles, both big name guys who are legit outstanding in at least one area but have huge question marks in others. I like it a lot. Might get ugly if it goes much beyond the middle of round 2 though.
I hope Brock pulls out the win after all the health problems he's had in the last year, but head says Overeem via TKO.
This is one of those things where it'll be over quick or it'll be long and boring. Lesnar will no doubt be wary on the feet, and Overeem might not pursue him aggressively because of the unstoppable takedown and smothering ground game. I'd assume Overeem's going to be working like mad on escapes, sweeps, and subs from the bottom. Lesnar's best bet is going to be clinching against the cage and blocking knees until he can get in good positions.
Fun fight to think about. I hope both guys can follow through.
Lloyd: When I met Mary, I got that old fashioned romantic feeling, where I'd do anything to bone her. Harry: That's a special feeling.
Good for the fighters financially; a 10K bonus (and I'd say the odds of the lighter weights getting the fight of the night bonus is damn high) is nothing compared to the cost of training, medical, and travel, not to mention the higher show/win pay too.
