The Brock Lesnar vs Alistair Overeem Main Event is already hyped more than the Twilight movies. Hold it, that is impossible. OK, it didn’t come close to that but it is going to live up to the hype they are putting out.

Brock Lesnar (5-2-0, 2 KOs) is coming off a long layoff after losing to Cain Velasquez and subsequent stomach malady, but when your ego is as big as your mammoth hulk body it takes time to heal. I really think it is overblown, and if he is fighting there are no health, shape or attitude issues to worry about with Lesnar.

He is probably just glad he isn’t dealing with a possible steroid test. If EITHER of these guys ever pass a steroid test, there is some fishy stuff going on with the testers. Seriously folks, like they’re not both going max on the JUICE every day. That just makes for a better ‘ROID rage fight in my opinion.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission has granted a conditional (unconditional if you ask me) license to this other hulk-ish figure Alistair Overeem (35-11-0, 14 KOs) so the rest of us get to witness what it would be like if REAL giants existed in our world and fought.

Overeem is 256 pounds and 6’5” while Lesnar is 6’3” and 265 pounds. I don’t know what that means, but I thought it was a cool fight fact.

UFC 141 Predictions – Brock Lesnar (+120) KOs Alistair Overeem in 2nd Round, so BET BROCK


Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone (17-3) vs Nate Diaz (14-7)


This UFC 141 Co-Main Event is a Lightweight match between Ultimate Fighter 5 participant Nate Diaz (+200) and Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone (-260) who has 6 wins in a row. Cerrone has been on a terror after just bouncing to the UFC after being in the WEC.

Both of these fighters are submission freaks, and I expect this co-main event to end that same way. Cerrone is one tough MF, and though I don’t expect this to be easy, I expect his range of fighting to frustrate Diaz into making a mistake. Betting UNDER 2.5 Rounds +130 is a possibility also.

UFC 141 Predictions – Donald Cerrone wins by submission over Nate (not Nick) Diaz in second round


Johny Hendricks (11-1) vs Jon Fitch (23-3-1)


Jon Fitch (-260) was in a draw with BJ Penn, and defeated Thiago Alves two times. Maybe due to his lack of know-out ability, this guy is not quite getting the adoration he will have after he wins this one by decision. He had a shoulder injury, so it has been 10 months since his last octagon decision.

This kid Johny Hendricks (+200) is a former NCAA Wrestling Champion, but he doesn’t have the experience or the MMA incorporation of other skills enough yet. Watch this kid in future, because I believe he will be an up and comer but just not against Jon Fitch.

UFC 141 Predictions – Jon Fitch wins by Decision over Johny Hendricks


Vladimir Matyushenko (25-5) vs Alexander Gustafsson (12-1)

The Old Guy in the Club just can’t compete with New Hotness anymore. Vladimir (+250) doesn’t have the stamina to stay with Gustafsson (-350) in this MMA betting event against the kid who is rising to stardom.

UFC 141 Predictions – Alexander Gustafsson wins by KO in second round over Vladimir Matyushenko
