Brock Lesnar vs. Alistair Overeem Announced
Dana White recently announced through an interview with the LA Times the superfight every fan has been waiting for – Brock Lesnar will face off against Alistair Overeem in a five round number one contender bout on December 30.
Fans and pundits alike have been speculating for weeks on the timing of Brock’s eventual return and the future of Alistair Overeem’s MMA career. Well, now we can all start speculating on who will win and why because that nut has been officially cracked. The downside to the deal is that Alistair confirmed in an interview with Ariel Helwani that he has indeed signed an exclusive contract with the UFC forgoing the former cross promotional freedom he had written into his now expired Strikeforce contract.
The only question remaining is why Overeem felt compelled yesterday to tweet, “The Swedish website that posted that I’m on my way to Vegas to sign the UFC contract is WRONG!”
