Brock Lesnar: Alistair Overeem doesn't understand the beast he's going to enter the Octagon with at UFC 141 (Video)

"I'm knocking on the door to being the UFC heavyweight champion again. I got this fight against Alistair, and this guy is not going to stand in my way. There's no way in hell that I'm going to let that happen. He's very versatile on his feet. He's got a long range, both with his hands and his legs. I don't care how many fights he's had or I don't care where his career has been, when the door shuts and it's time to go, he'll know really quickly that he's got a fight on his hands. In my mind, I think he's in over his head. He doesn't really understand the beast that he's gonna enter the Octagon with. At the end of the day, it's going to come down to will and who wants this fight more. And at the end of the day, Brock Lesnar wants this fight more than Alistair Overeem."

Alistair Overeem has traveled far and wide and competed against some of the best the sport has to offer throughout his storied mixed martial arts career. But even with that, Brock Lesnar doesn't think he understands the kind of beast he'll be entering the Octagon with at UFC 141 on Dec. 30 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The MGM Grand Garden Arena is going to have a hard time containing these two titans but when it's all said and done, a number one contender to Junior dos Santos' heavyweight championship will emerge. But who will it be? The beast or the "Demolition Man?"
