Minnesota native Brock Lesnar has one of the biggest fights of his career scheduled for Friday night when he faces Dutch kickboxer Alistair Overeem at UFC 141. The Alexandria-based fighter put his game face on for the weigh-ins on Thursday night before stepping on the scale.
Lesnar officially weighed in at 266 pounds -- three pounds heavier than his opponent -- but the former wrestler for the Minnesota Golden Gophers looked as ready as he has in a long time as he prepared to step on the scale. The UFC posted video of the event on Youtube (33:45 if only interested in Lesnar's part):
Lesnar hasn't fought since losing his heavyweight championship to Cain Velasquez at UFC 121 last October. He's since suffered a second bout with diverticulitis, resulting in having surgeons remove 12 inches of his colon, but seems as focused as ever on Friday night's fight.
