UFC 141: Brock Lesnar weighs 278-pounds for Alistair Overeem fight

How much weight did Brock Lesnar lose after having surgery to remove 12-inches of his intestines following a nasty bout of diverticulitis?

Not much, apparently.

The former heavyweight champion revealed at the UFC 141 press conference in California yesterday (Nov. 11) how much beef he's carrying around.

"What am I weighing right now? I'm about 278-pounds," Lesnar said. "Sorry for the disappointment but it's the real deal. It is what it is."

This after endless rumors stating the Brockness Monster wasn't such a beast anymore. So many, in fact, that it's still the major point of discussion when talking about Lesnar's fight against Alistair Overeem on Dec. 30 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

For his part, "The Reem" was actually less than impressed with his opponents size. He thought Brock would be bigger than he is, actually.

Boo-hoo. 

It's been confirmed by UFC President Dana White that the winner of this colossal match-up will receive a title shot against the winner of the Cain Velasquez vs. Junior dos Santos heavyweight championship fight taking place tonight (Nov. 12) at UFC on FOX 1 in Anaheim.

Who takes it, Maniacs? A bigger than we thought Brock Lesnar? Or a debuting "Demolition Man," Alistair Overeem?
