UFC 81: Brock Lesnar to Wear 4XL Gloves Tonight; $200K Bonus if he beats Frank Mir

Brock Lesnar is only the second man in MMA history to wear 4XL size gloves.  The first fighter to wear this size was Hong Man Choi, the South Korean "Techno Giant" who fought Fedor Emelianenko at the Japanese MMA event- Yarennoka, which was held on New Year’s Eve of 2007. 

Hong is 7’3" and weighs 367 lbs while Lesnar is 6’2" and weighs 265 lbs.  There’s a pretty huge difference in weight and height, but their hands are the same size.  We’ll just have to wait and see if those heavy hands can finish up Frank Mir at UFC 81-Breaking Point.  Lesnar is guaranteed $250,000 USD tonight win or lose, but if he wins…he’ll be taking home an extra $200,000 USD bonus.
