Give each fighter 6 month to "prepare", and just for fun...no drug tests.

Brock is going to get to murked. He has been out way too long. Ring Rust will eat him up.

In what organization? I thought Overeem got released?

Dana signed him to a UFC contract.

Isn't 12/30 a Friday?

Hopefully they will sign Schivallo to a one night contract, so we can here some "Ubereem" and "Uberknee" calls.

Here comes a brutal Overeem KO. This is the best stylistic matchup for Overeem of the top five fighters in the UFC. A guy with little offensive striking firepower, a very poor bottom game, and worse cardio than him. I don't think that Lesnar will be able to take Overeem down consistently enough.

Yes, no way was the UFC holding an event on NYE.

Good call. Vegas is already insane enough that night.

Wow, I disagree on the cardio. Brock has shown he has pretty good cardio for a HW. Overeem will gas faster than Lesnar easily. I also don't think Reem is getting back up when Brock does take him down. I'm thinking Reem by 1st round TKO or Lesnar by 2nd round TKO after Reem gasses.

You're up late.

Come on, Lesnar was gassed within 30-45 seconds of the Cain fight, literally.

The only fights he hasn't gassed in were the ones where he was firmly in the drivers seat, like the second Mir fight and the Herring fight. It isn't taxing to lay on top of someone.

Watch some of Overeems old fights, like that Kanahara fight. He has some good cardio. I can't recall a single recent fight either where he has gassed anywhere near as hard as Lesnar did in the Cain or Couture fights.

Oh and Brock's bottom game. How do we know its poor?

His massive shoulders and upper body looked so immobile in the Valasquez and Carwin fights. That build is just terrible for being on bottom, you are just so trapped under a good fighter, and we could easily see Overeem end up on top in a scramble and land some crushing ground and pound.
