“I think I have earned a UFC world title fight, by winning every major title outside the UFC, but I am here to prove that I am – without question – the best heavyweight on the planet. You don’t do that sitting on the sidelines or working out in the gym, you do that by fighting and beating the best available opposition in the biggest fights that can be made.
Myself vs. Lesnar is a huge fight and I jumped at the chance to fight him.
But I don’t underestimate this man. Winning UFC belt from Randy Couture in his fourth pro MMA fight and defending it against Frank Mir and Shane Carwin was very impressive. I am also impressed by Lesnar’s fighting spirit; he has twice come back from a very serious illness and fought very tough opposition right away. He obviously has a lot of confidence in himself in fighting me after more than a year out and surgery on his stomach, and I admire that about him, but I am even more confident in myself. I will knock this guy out.
He is great at takedowns and controlling people on the ground, but he I can stop his takedowns and he is no match for me on the feet.
I am going to rip Brock Lesnar apart, piece by piece.”
Newly signed UFC heavyweight fighter, Alistair Overeem, was recently interviewed by Yahoo Sports and the above quote is the result.
Staying with his catch phrase for his UFC 141 main event against former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar, Overeem once again proclaims that he is going to rip Brock apart “piece by piece.”
Can he keep it standing long enough to back up the talk or will Lesnar’s wrestling game takeover?
