“Honestly, I think Brock will win pretty easily. I think we’re going to see the closest thing to a grappler versus striker match you’ll see nowadays. Brock is going to cover up; maybe throw one jab. He’ll rush Overeem to the cage, reach down for a leg and rip him down…. I don’t think he’s going to get off his back. I’d be very shocked — I’d applaud Overeem if he got off his back.”
Scheduled to welcome Alistair Overeem in his long awaited UFC debut is none other than former champion, Brock Lesnar.
Having faced the big man twice holding a record of 1-1 against him, Frank Mir tells ESPN.com that he sees the bout as a one sided affair, all in favor of Lesnar.
We haven’t seen too many chinks in Overeem’s armor in the past several years, but then again, he is always the bigger stronger man in the ring. With Lesnar back to full health he should be able to at least equal the strength and explosive athleticism over the “Reem”.
It’s no secret, Brock need to take the fight to the mat in order to have a prayer of winning, but who out there besides Mir thinks he can actually do it?
