UFC: Lesnar vs Overeem, Velasquez vs Dos Santos: Who Wins This Mini-Tourney?
Who would reign supreme in this mini-tournament?

With the semifinals of the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix just days away from the US Bank arena in Cincinnati, Ohio, tournament talk is in the air.

Couple this talk with the recent signing of Brock Lesnar versus Alistair Overeem to take place on December 30, as well as the UFC heavyweight championship to be defended by Cain Velasquez against Junior dos Santos on November 12, and this evolution of events is the perfect storm for a debate regarding the top heavyweight within the UFC.

All four fighters have characteristically unique attributes. Similar in their ability to deliver powerful strikes, none of the four share a common foundation with respect to their skill-set.

Velasquez is very balanced; dos Santos is a lethal boxer; Overeem possesses excellent kick-boxing skills; and Lesnar is an avalanche of a man with freakish talent and unlimited potential.

This unique combination of four tremendously gifted mixed martial artists provides the opportunity to debate who a winner would be in a mini-tournament.

Please follow along as I dissect the matchups, the predictions for a victor and who would ultimately reign supreme as the top UFC heavyweight.

I welcome your comments.
