I recently got to sit down with Dave Bautista. After many questions/answers, he filled me in as to who he thinks is the man to beat Brock Lesnar:
MMBB: Well someone being so new to the sport, he’s by far the best or most dominant heavyweight out there.
Bautista: By far… well I wouldn’t say by far, I think Overeem is the best heavyweight.
MMBB: But could he stop Brock’s takedowns?
Bautista: I think he could beat Brock. I do. I think that Alistair Overeem is the best heavyweight in the world. I really believe that!
He was very forth coming and honest about how negotiations are going and more importantly how training is going. I thought his thinking Overeem would beat Brock was a good prediction that we will probably never see.
