Jim Ross has updated his blog over at JRsBarBQ.com. Below are some highlights:
"Lesnar weighed in at 265 at the official weigh in on Friday but you can count on Brock tipping the scales at 280ish come Saturday night. Brock will likely outweigh his adversary Frank Mir by approximately 30 pounds and even with that size disparity Mir won’t have an edge in speed and quickness. Mir does have a decided advantage in MMA experience and has talked a damn good game going into the fight to help sell PPV’s.
"I stick by my prediction that if Brock doesn’t make any foolish mistakes early that Lesnar will destroy Mir who will be a HUGE favorite in the arena. Brock once told me that getting booed motivated him to scary levels like when he was a heavyweight wrestler at Minnesota and they would travel to Iowa to compete and where Brock was looked upon as if he was Satan himself there in Iowa City. Lesnar will be booed out of the arena Saturday night in Las Vegas and I don’t think that he would have it any other way."
"If Jerry wins the mayoral race this Fall, WWE will be in the unique position to attempt to replace the WWE Hall of Famer on Monday Night Raw which won’t be an easy task."
"I am also very interested in the GSP-Alves match up as many of my friends who follow MMA here in Oklahoma feel that St. Pierre is in deep jeopardy against a uniquely skilled opponent who will also have a decided weight advantage come fight time. Both men weighed in at 170 but Thiago Alves is expected to be closer to 200 pounds Saturday night and will probably outweigh the ultra talented and classy GSP by 20 pounds or so. I’m a huge GSP fan and hope that he can pull this one out of the fire but from all accounts this will be GSP’s toughest fight of his amazing career."
