Brock Lesner is back and UFC fans can finally watch a fight that does not include Kimbo Slice. The real Hustle of mixed martial arts is healthy again, and ready to rock the competition.
Only one man stands in the way of Brock ” Hammer Fists” Lesner, and that is intern champion Shane Carwin. The thirty-five year old engineer from Colorado comes in with a professional record of 12-0, and all of his fights were finished in round one via submission or knockout. Carwin has a strong standup game to go along with his ground game which is very strong given his background as a former collegiate wrestler.
The ferocious Lesner is coming off an extended training camp and has been patiently waiting to prove himself as a UFC powerhouse again. He recently was diagnosed with diverticulitis, which caused him to lose almost 40 pounds. After treatment at the Mayo clinic for his inflamed intestines, Lesner is back and ready for his next challenge.
Fans will be on the edge of there seats at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas, Nevada tonight. Lesner (4-1) vs. Carwin (12-0) at UFC 116 should be an event that will make us forget all about the circus act Kimbo Slice, and remember Lesner for what he brings to the sport, pure Hustle.
