UFC 141 Weigh-in Results and Reaction: Brock Lesnar vs. Alistair Overeem

It has been more than a year since we've seen former WWE and UFC champion, Brock Lesnar, inside the Octagon.

Now Lesnar faces his toughest striking opponent, K-1 kickboxing champ and former Strikeforce heavyweight champion, Alistair Overeem.

UFC 141 should provide fireworks for what is the most interesting matchup the UFC has possibly had all year long. Overeem and Lesnar present the classic striker vs. grappler matchup.

Although we say this all the time, truer words could not be spoken about this match.

Overeem's great striking background vs. Lesnar's great NCAA wrestling champion background.

It poses many questions.

Can Overeem knock Lesnar out? Can Lesnar get this fight to the ground? Will Overeem be able to keep this fight standing?

On top of Overeem and Lesnar we have a big lightweight matchup of two fighters who are coming to brawl—Donald Cerrone and Nate Diaz.

Nate may be Nick Diaz's little brother, but in his last fight he showed glimpses of how he can be better than his Strikeforce champion brother.

Now Diaz faces a tough opponent in Cerrone.

Cerrone is no joke and since coming over from the WEC, he has fought in four fights this year, winning all of them. Only one of those fights has gone past the second round.

Stay tuned here with Bleacher Report for the weigh-ins of UFC 141 and make sure you check back for the results and reaction as we bring it to you at 7 p.m. EST tonight with Antwyn Jackson and Sal DeRose.
