Who Wins?

Something tells me it won't go all 5 rounds....

Seeing Brock Lesnar get outclassed against Cain Velasquez in the stand-up would lead me to believe that the REEM who is a way more seasoned striker and has been in the game more than Cain, would take Lesnar apart in less than two rounds.

Plus i dont think Lesnar's performance after that digestive disease will let him fight like before.

To me, this fight will go w/ Lesnar's takedowns. If he gets them, he wins. If he doesn't, he will look worse than Cain made him look

Overeem is gonna have to do more to stop the takedowns of Brock then Werdum. But I see Overeem winning by ko/tko. Lesner seems to stop, drop, and roll like he's on fire when he's getting punched in the face.

With Alistair, it is more probable that he could land a takedown, but i question his fighting game, mentality, and ring rust after that disease

Unless Brock can take him down and keep him down I don't think he will win this fight, Overeem's striking is much better than Lesnar's and Brock just can't take a punch. R1KO Overeem

Although I'm not super impressed with Overeem, I don't like Brock's long layoff, coupled with his ability to take damage. If Overeem is able to land a few solid shots, the fight could end rather early. It will be interesting if the fight get's out of the second round though. Alistair just might gas and Brock could take over.

I'm thinking Alistair wins via ko.

I foresee an insane bull rush by Brock followed by Reem's face resembling Frank Mir's after a couple minutes of uninterrupted smashing.

Overeem by punches and knee rape. He will have 5 rounds to do it. And I highly highly doubt Lesnar will finish Overeem.

I don't think Brock's wrestling is as good as it looks on paper. He doesn't have the striking to set his takedowns up, so they suffer. Add in his long layoff, his inability to take a punch, and Overeem's massive striking advantage and a really strong guillotine and I don't see a lot of ways for Brock to win the fight.

Of course if he can manage to get it to the ground he would have a solid chance, but I don't think he'll be able to do that.

IF lesnar can land a takedown, and he realizes thats his only chance of winning, then i dont think The Reem will up from such takedown and it will be lesnar vs mir 2 all over again.

I agree it all depends on Brock's takedown. I am rooting for Brock, he has earned my respect for fighting with his illness and taking on tough opponents.

I say the fans win becasue with all the unknowns.Brock being injured and a long lay off and Overeem having his ufc debut and not facing a wrestler of Brock's caliber in a while. So it will fun to watch and hard to pick a winner for me but i don't think it goes the full 5 rounds.

Lesnar is not a can. Hill take Overeem down at will and smash him worse than he did Mir.

I think The Reem sends Lesnar into the cage then works him over with some knees, ending the fight late in the first round via tko.

maybe Lesnar lands a punch similar to the heath herring fight and end it all in 7 sec, Reem's chin is not the best
