G DAnalyst IIIDecember 15, 2011

On December 30th, 2011 the Ultimate Fighting Championship will air their last pay-per-view event of 2011 when they travel to Las Vegas, Nevada for UFC 141.

UFC 141 will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena as the scheduled time will be pushed back to 7:00 p.m. PT and 10:00 p.m. ET.

In one of the most hyped, anticipated and exciting bouts of all-time, Brock Lesnar will make his long-awaited return to the Octagon to take on Alistair Overeem.

After a whirlwind of controversy, Lesnar and Overeem are set to meet in the main event of the evening at UFC 141 with the winner moving on to face Junior Dos Santos for a heavyweight title shot.

And, while Lesnar will certainly be eying up another shot at UFC gold, what happens if he falls short against Overeem?

Could UFC 141 be the last time we see Brock Lesnar inside the Octagon?

After being stripped by Cain Velasquez of the 265-pound title at UFC 121, Lesnar took personal time away from the sport of mixed martial arts.

Lesnar endured an extremely difficult trial with diverticulitis, and many fans were unsure if they would ever see Lesnar fighting again.

But Lesnar is now back and promises to be the "Brock" we all once knew.

However, Lesnar hasn't stood across the Octagon from an opponent since October of 2010.

It's likely that being off for such a lengthy amount of time could ultimately play a role in Lesnar's bout on December 30th.

On top of the ring rust that could possibly be present is the reflecting question of exactly how healthy is Lesnar?

If Lesnar were to come up short at UFC 141, it could be tough sledding from there which leaves UFC fans across the globe with one question:

Could UFC 141 be Brock Lesnar's last stand?
