UFC 141 video: Alistair Overeem doesn't really understand the Brock Lesnar beast

"I don't care how many fights he's had. I don't care where his career has been. When that [cage] 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 he's about to get in the Octagon with -- at the end of the day, it's going to come down to will and who wants this more.... Brock Lesnar wants this fight more than Alistair Overeem."

-- Brock Lesnar vs. Alistair Overeem is (finally) almost here -- the two massive heavyweight fighters will collide in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 141 main event, which is scheduled to take place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Fri., Dec. 30, 2011. It's a fight scheduled for five rounds; however, it's highly unlikely to last that long with these two powerful Goliaths slinging leather. The winner will earn number one heavyweight contender status and set up another monster match up with reigning division kingpin, Junior dos Santos, some time in 2012. Who's it going to be?
