Hey my first post!
A few years back I noticed a guy with some beastly cauliflower ears and sporting a UFC t-shirt boarding a plane out of Vegas (bound for DC) right in front of me and after we got on the plane and he finally turned around I was amazed to discover that it was Randy Couture. I've never been to a live MMA event, so my exposure to these guys has been limited to what I see on TV, and they always seem like giants to me.
Call it a perspective thing I guess...
Anyhow, once I got over being star struck at being in the presence of greatness the thing that really blew my mind was that Randy in real life was nowhere near as big a dude as I always thought he was. Sure, he looked lean and mean but he's not a monster.
It doesn't surprise me that Randy comes off looking small when he appears (on a poster) next to Brock Lesner. Like him or hate him, Lesner is a giant son of a bitch.
