Main Card

Heavyweight bout: Brock Lesnar v. Alistair Overeem

Oh boy. The poster says it all. 521 pounds of pure manhood in the octagon. I can’t remember the last time seeing two giants/athletes like this in the cage. This is the first fight in awhile that I really have no idea as to what’s going to happen. Overeem clearly has the advantage when it comes to striking technique. Even though Brock can’t match Overeem’s technique, he still has power. Brock has the grappling/wrestling advantage. Brock hasn’t fought in over a year, since he lost the title to Cain Velasquez (watch here). Overeem last took Fabricio Werdum to a decision win in a pretty lackluster fight. He has won his last 10 fights, with 1 no contest. Can Brock handle the technical striking of Overeem? Can Overeem avoid being taken down by Brock?
