Trash-talk is heating up a bit between the two monstrous heavyweights who will headline the UFC 141: “Lesnar vs. Overeem” event, which airs live on pay-per-view.
Recent comments made by both former mixed-martial-arts world champions indicate the violent intentions both guys have for each other heading into what is expected to be one of the biggest pay-per-view events of any kind in the 2011 calendar year.
The former Strikeforce and K-1 heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem recently stated, “This fight isn’t going to last two rounds. Mr. Lesnar is the best wrestler in the division, but he has a big weakness: He cannot strike. And unfortunately I am the best striker in the world.”
Former UFC heavyweight champion and WWE Superstar Brock Lesnar responded to Overeem’s comments, stating: “He says he is going to knock me out inside two rounds. That’s his dream. The reality is if I execute my game plan, Alistair Overeem cannot win this fight.”
UFC 141: “Lesnar vs. Overeem” emanates from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, December 30, 2011. For more information on the event, visit WrestleZone’s official MMA sister-site, Sherdog.com.
