"The winner of the fight between me and Brock [Lesnar] will fight the winner of Cain [Velasquez] and [Junior] dos Santos. You know what? I'm going to be bold. I'm going to kick that guy's ass."

Bold indeed. Alistair Overeem vs. Brock Lesnar is a colossal heavyweight clash planned for this New Year's Eve weekend (Dec. 30, 2011) live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. It pits the former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) division champion, Lesnar, who has not competed in more than a year because of a major intestinal disorder, against the former Strikeforce and K-1 Grand Prix champion, who promised to "kick his ass" on today's edition of the MMA Hour. Anyone think "Demolition Man" can put his money where his mouth is? Or will a surgically repaired (and supposedly healthy) Lesnar be more dangerous than ever? How do you see this titanic tilt unfolding in "Sin City?"
