Carwin too much, when these two square down at the weigh in I think Dana white is going to look incredibly stupid (and small).
Lashley's around 255 for fights, but I am sure he is much heavier between them. We also don't know if this is before the Gonzaga fight for Shane, so he maybe a little lighter.
Plus, how you look is physique based and height based. Its an illusion in essence. By "illusion", I mean someone of similar height and weight could look totally different than someone else based on their structure.
Lashley has a lot more muscle on him than Carwin, especially in the arms so of course he is gonna look bigger. Carwin has some high insertions for his biceps while Lashley has pretty low ones, so it makes him look even bigger. When they zoom in though, its not near as big of a difference though. I am pretty sure Lashley would look of similar size to Lesnar too, even at a smaller weight just because of his structure and height.
