Brock Lesnar vs. Alistair Overeem?!
UPDATE: Since this post was published August 17th, it has been proven true. Here’s the post.
Rumors are flying around the ‘net about a December 10th UFC match between Dutch Superstar and current Strikeforce Heavyweight Champion Alistair Overeem and UFC ex-Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar in Toronto. While nothing is confirmed as of this writing, it makes a lot of sense.
We know that the UFC and Golden Glory are in talks. We know Alistair only wants to fight top competition. Brock Lesnar should be ready to return in December, and, of course, with this bout as the Main Event, the UFC could just about start printing money!
In a recent interview, Alistair said that he wants to fight the UFC Heavyweight champ, but after his record as the Strikeforce titleholder, and his management’s recent shenanigans, it isn’t a stretch to see Dana White shutting that idea down. Because of his lack of North American exposure, Alistair by himself isn’t a great draw here. However, he is known, and a match with Lesnar would most likely be a record-breaking event.
Looks like the holidays may come a little early this year!
