We try to stick to pro wrestling here at Cageside Seats but any time Brock Lesnar fights, we're going to have some content involving the most popular mixed martial artist in the world today.
Lesnar is back this Fri., Dec. 30, 2011, in the main event of UFC 141 in Las Vegas, Nevada, against Alistair Overeem. This bout is of particular interest because a loss would put Lesnar's fighting career in doubt. Not that he would just up and quit if he was beaten badly but he's been flirting with WWE for months now and the prospect of one more monster payday at WrestleMania is still looming large.
In recent months, Lesnar was promoting the WWE '12 video game by shooting on Undertaker and Stone Cold Steve Austin. The idea of a big money match against either of those two is enough to get up for no matter where Brock's MMA career is. UFC President Dana White is holding firm that Lesnar isn't going anywhere but again, what if he loses to Overeem on Friday night? And what if he really gets knocked out this time?
We'll find out soon enough. In the meantime, check out the Countdown to UFC 141 video featuring Lesnar and Overeem getting prepared to square off in just a few days. Early predictions from you Cagesiders?
