"He seemed like a regular guy. There was not really any emotion. Of course, I've had so many fights in my career, I've been fighting now for 14 years, eight years on the top level, I've looked in a lot of people's eyes. I don't really get warm or cold about it. I did think he was bigger but maybe that's because I got bigger over the years. But, yeah, no hard feelings. No, (I was under the impression he would be) bigger. Perhaps (he did lose some size after the surgery), but he still weighs like 278-pounds, that's what he says."
-- Alistair Overeem had the chance to come face-to-face with Brock Lesnar at the UFC 141 press conference in California (check it out here). And after sizing up the former heavyweight champion, you know what? "The Reem" thought he would be bigger. That's likely because Lesnar's size has always been one of his biggest selling points. At 6'3'' and 278-pounds, by any normal standards, he's a mountain of a man. Then again, Overeem is listed at 6'5'' and 256-pounds, so his measuring stick is certainly different than that of the average Joe. Still, the consensus opinion coming out of the press conference was that Lesnar looks as wide and fit as he ever as. To judge for yourself, click here for the staredown pic and here for the presser photo gallery. Agree or disagree with Overeem? Hear more from "Demolition Man" after the jump, including his plan to send Lesnar back to the WWE.
