UFC 141 video: Alistair Overeem 'confident' he will knockout Brock Lesnar in less than five minutes

"I'm very confident. It's going to be a knockout victory in the first round. He's not going to get out of the first round. It will not come to the second round. He's a strong guy, a very dangerous guy. But, I think I've got what it takes to stop him. And I got what it takes to stop him in the first round."

-- Former Strikeforce heavyweight champion, Alistair Overeem, will make his Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) debut at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Dec. 30, 2011. "Demolition Man" is being thrown to the wolves right out the gate, getting paired opposite former heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar in the UFC 141 main event. It's a classic match up of contrasting styles, with Overeem -- a K-1 kickboxing champion -- holding the significant stand up advantage, while Lesnar -- a decorated amateur wrestling champion -- boasting the dominant edge on the ground. The dangerous Dutch striker doesn't seem very worried, confident that his strengths and experience will lead him to imminent, and sudden, victory on New Year's Eve weekend. Agree or disagree?
