"It doesn't get any bigger than this."
UFC 141: "Lesnar vs. Overeem" is not only big in terms of main event musculature, but also in terms of star power. Former heavyweight champion and marquee attraction Brock Lesnar puts asses in seats and Alistair Overeem, well, he just puts people on their asses.
Other match-ups for the Friday night fight card include the lightweight grudge match between Nate Diaz and Donald Cerrone, who, if the press conference and weigh in were any indication, need to be kept in separate venues until the fight starts.
In short, UFC 141 = fireworks.
