The Baddest Dude on the Planet Returns to the Octagon Against The Most Dominant Heavyweight in the World Today!
It's a story with so many angles to it, there's really no way to position it as simply "huge."
Brock Lesnar is back, and he's returning to the Octagon this year. Strikeforce World Heavyweight Champion Alistair Overeem becomes the 2nd title holder in the Zuffa-purchased-league to vacate a championship (following in the footsteps of NICK DIAZ), and will finally make his UFC debut.
"Brock is a big name, a dangerous guy, and this is a dream matchup," Overeem told THE LOS ANGELES TIMES just moments ago. "Brock's a big guy, an exciting wrestler with his takedowns. I want to see this fight myself. Overall, I'm a different fighter. A striker, athletic, big. These are going to be two big trucks going at it on a collision course."
There are those who feel Overeem's striking will pose a huge problem for Brock, while those in the Lesnar fan camp insist Overeem has never fought a wrestler with Lesnar's takedown ability, nor has Overeem ever been challenged power-wise like he will against Brock.
"This is the fight the fans want," UFC President Dana White said. "Both of these guys are monsters. Can Lesnar take Overeem down?"
Lorenzo Fertitta said the Strikeforce World Title will not be on the line. The UFC has purchased Strikeforce.
"Our thinking when we bought Strikeforce was to give fans the fights they want," Fertitta said. "Obviously, Alistair's one of the best heavyweights in the world, but he also has that 'it' factor -- the tremendous look, he's huge. It's a star factor."
