Alistair Overeem Calls Out Brock Lesnar After UFC 169 Victory

Alistair Overeem called out Brock Lesnar after beating Frank Mir at UFC 169 on Saturday night.

In his post-fight interview, Overeem commented, “I heard there’s word Brock Lesnar is about to come back to UFC. Well I’ll be here waiting for him.”

You can watch Overeem’s comments at this link or embedded in the video below:

If this is the first time you’re hearing about this, allow me to catch you up. Lesnar is under WWE contract so they would have to approve any fight in the UFC. UFC President Dana White said he believes Lesnar wants to do both UFC and WWE.

While that might sound completely egregious, the word from one of my lead sources is that WWE would allow for Lesnar to fight but they’d want him in a fight he was essentially guaranteed to win. With that being said, I don’t expect Lesnar to fight for UFC while under WWE contract. That just doesn’t seem like something Vince McMahon would be willing to do, especially with the risk of Lesnar losing and hurting his ability to draw.

    I’d love to see Reem kick brock back into silence again. I can’t buy him as the BadA## of WWE after seeing him turtle up in the ufc when the crap hits the fan during a fight. He ‘s all talk until someone takes the fight to him. Glad they didn’t have him in the genuine tough guy section on dot.com

      You mean when Overeem was ‘roided out of his mind?

      • ldb

        was cain roided too? I don’t think he was ever in trouble for juicing.

          Overeem is the dude who caught shit over staying out the country to avoid being tested after the fight, after skipping the one before the fight.

        Sorry Chris but Lesnar was also roided up in most of his matches in UFC, your comment is perfectly fair but Lesnar & the rest of the UFC were all on roids
