Brock Lesnar makes his return to the Ultimate Fighting Championship cage with a five-round main event Dec. 30 at MGM Grand in Las Vegas, taking on newly signed Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem.
From L.A. Time interview:
“Brock is a big name, a dangerous guy, and this is a dream matchup,” Overeem told The Times on Tuesday, just after signing a standard UFC fight contract in the office of Chairman Lorenzo Fertitta. “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.”
The Dec. 30 Lesnar vs. Overeem victor will be first in line to fight the winner of a Nov. 12 fight between Velasquez and Junior Dos Santos.
