Lesnar vs. Overeem Wiki Update Wiki

The main event of UFC 141 featured the highly anticipated heavyweight showdown between Alistair Overeem and Brock Lesnar.


Lesnar threw a low kick early and then a left jab. Overeem missed on a big overhand right, and Lesnar missed with one of his own. Lesnar looked for a single leg a minute into the fight but was shaken off by Overeem. A small cut on Overeem's right eye had a small trickle of blood forming. Overeem powered forward with a pair of big knees to the body of Lesnar. Lesnar stayed in the pocket but seemed to be affected by the knees. Overeem landed a combination and then a punishing left kick to the midsection, and in a delayed reaction Lesnar fell to the ground. Overeem punched away with a series of blows to the head, one more to the body, and referee Mario Yamasaki called it off with Lesnar not moving or defending.


Speaking to Joe Rogan in the post-fight interview, Overeem commented, "First or second round, I promised... A nice little K1 body kick... I trained the takedown defense a lot, Brock is an excellent wrestler, so I had to step up my game... Junior Dos Santos is next, that I promise you guys."


Rogan also visited with Lesnar, commenting, "My hats off to Alistair Overeem, I want to take my hat off to my training partners, my family, my wife, I've had a really difficult couple of years with my disease, and tonight I'll say that this is the last time you'll see me in the Octagon... I want to thank everybody."
