Brock Lesnar (Pictures) is headlining a UFC card.
No, MMA has not turned into Bizarro world, and as far as I know, the end is not nigh. However, the former WWE poster boy and questionable tattoo connoisseur is making his UFC debut against Frank Mir (Pictures) in a match that elicits as much head scratching as headshaking.
Don't give up just yet, though. This card delivers the goods with an interim title bout between PRIDE refugee Antonio Rodrigo "Minotauro" Nogueira and the MMA community's favorite punching bag, Tim Sylvia (Pictures).
Throw in the long-awaited return of Ricardo Almeida (Pictures) as well as the ongoing Tyson Griffin "Fight of the Year" tour, and you've got what shapes up to be a solid night of fistic entertainment.
Besides, don't tell me you don't want to see the look on Lesnar's face when he realizes that the running lariat isn't viable in MMA. Link
Nice breakdown of all the fights on the UFC 81 card, plus some great humor (had me Laughing out Loud a couple of times), worth checking out for sure.
