UFC 116 pre-fight Press Conference HighlightsPosted on July 2, 2010, 04:07 AM by Daniel Cassidy
Tensions were very high last night as both the UFC's Heavyweight Champ, Brock Lesnar, and the Interim Heavyweight Champ, Shane Carwin, came face to face at the UFC 116 press conference. Both spoke about their desire to overcome the other and unify the UFC's Heavyweight gold. Shane spoke about his role as the underdog, despite many fans wanting him to defeat Brock.
Carwin also talks about how he is ready for Brock's wrestling, coming out of Greg Jackson's camp. Lesnar returns 357 days after his last fight, against Frank Mir at UFC 100. The lay off is due to Lesnar's almost life threatening battle with diverticulitus.
The card is co-headlined by a Middleweight war between Yoshihiro Akiyama and Chris Leben, who takes the fight two weeks after his last win over Aaron Simpson. UFC 116 takes place July 3rd in the MGM Grand Las Vegas Nevada.
