UFC 141: Lesnar vs. Overeem Predictions

I haven’t done one of these in a while because the past few PPV’S have either conflicted with other events, or I just didn’t feel like ordering the PPV (and I’m stick kicking myself for passing on Henderson vs. Rua). That said, ain’t no way in hell I’m passing on Brock Lesnar vs. Alistair Overeem. As the ancient Mayans said…LET’S GET OT ON!

MAIN EVENT
A buddy of mine has been waiting for Brock Lesnar to fight someone “his own size” for a while, and Alistair Overeem besides being two inches taller is also undefeated since 2007. He’s also already accustomed to an American style/audience, which is the reason so many other “big names” who came to the UFC had disappointing debuts. Every analytical statistic says Alistair wins, but sentimentally…I gotta go with Lesnar for the upset.

CO-MAIN EVENT
Any prediction for a Diaz fight usually starts with the fact that I heavily dislike the Diaz Brothers, and Nate more so than Nick. I’m also interviewing Ricky Gill who is running for Congress is Stockton for “The Right Hook” next week, and I hope he’s not reading this because dislike of Diaz plus I’m normally a fan of Donald Cerrone in the first place, I think “Cowboy” is taking the decision.

UNDERCARD
Johny Hendricks over Jon Fitch, Alexander Gustafsson over Vladimir Matyushenko, and Jim Hettes over Nam Phan
