“July 3rd, MGM Grand Garden Arena. Brock Lesnar Vs Shane Carwin collide in the biggest physical match-up, and the biggest promotional match-up in UFC history,” Joe Rogan declares at the start of the UFC’s new promo for UFC 116.
Dana White agrees, saying, “This is a real heavyweight fight – the biggest heavyweight fight ever.”
Now we’ve heard this kind of hyperbole many times before, but in this case they are not exaggerating. With Lesnar’s star power and Carwin’s punching power this is a fight that virtually sells itself, but expect a major promotional push and mainstream interest in the next two weeks as we approach what could well be the biggest MMA pay-per-view of the year.
