Tale of the Tape: Julius Peppers vs. Lorenzo Neal

By 09.02.08

Competitor (seed): Julius Frazier Peppers (6)

Nickname: Pep

Height: 6’7″

Weight: 283

Reach: If you can see him he can hit you.

Sponsor: Orange Julius

Ring Music: Eric B. and Rakim’s Relax With Pep

Hometown: Bailey, NC

Pedigree: Julius’s parents must have known their son was going to be a ridiculous athlete considering that they named him after Dr. J and Clyde Frazier.

Strength: He’s the best pure athlete in the competition.

Weakness: He’d rather be playing basketball.

Predilection towards violence: Ingesting the wrong dietary supplement could put him in a rage and/or lead to a suspension.

Fighting Style: Julius relies heavily on his ring generalship, aided by his brilliant footwork and outstanding reach.

Competitor (seed): Lorenzo Neal (11)

Nickname: Low Daddy

Height: 5’11”

Weight: 255

Reach: Not much.

Sponsor: Athletic Nation

Ring Music: Grab Them Cakes

Hometown: Hanford, CA. The town that just started recognizing Martin Luther King Jr. Day last year is also the hometown of Tyson Chandler, Steve Perry, and steroid enthusiast Ken Caminiti.

Pedigree: Lorenzo was an All-American wrestler at Fresno State.

Strength: Putting people on their asses.

Weakness: Stubby fingers mean he’ll never be a great sax player.

Predilection towards violence: Because he doesn’t get nearly enough physical contact as a lead blocker in the NFL Lorenzo returns to Fresno each off-season to work out with college wrestlers.

Fighting Style: He’ll come right at you and brawl, but that style belies his technical abilities.
