Overeem's Crazy For Making His UFC Debut Says Lesnar Coach
“I think it’ll be good for Brock. Overeem is a guy who has heavy hands, he’ll try to keep the fight up, but when he goes to the ground he has a good foundation. It’ll be an exciting fight, between two big guys, what brings much appeal to the fans. Overeem must be crazy to debut in UFC, because he lost the opportunity to fight in Strikeforce’s GP, but he still is the champion of the event. Brock will be tested once again with a great opponent, who’s the current holder of the belt of one of the biggest organizations in the world. If you stop to look at it, Brock, besides Heath Herring and the Korean (Min Soo Kim), has only fought champion, former champions and Velasquez, who became a champion after defeating him.”
In an interview with Brazilian media outlet, Tatame.com, Brock Lesnar’s Jiu Jitsu trainer, Rodrigo “Comprido” Medeiros, weighs in on his students recently announced bout with Alistair Overeem.
