And it's on!

Reem is just too strong. He not only eats horses he can bench press them! Reem by easy KO!

Fan reaction would be "interesting" if Lesnar beat Reem.

If Lesnar doesn't pull out and this fight actually happens I'll have a whole new respect for Lesnar.

Ariel Helwani: Was Brock the only fight offered to you for your debut?

Overeem: I got offered to fight for the championship belt but that would mean I had to wait, because of course dos Santos is fighting Velasquez Nov. 12, it's going to be a great fight, then probably these guys are going to need some healing time, relaxing time, so November plus six months, that will probably be May. I'm a fighter, I like to be active, so then some names came rolling out and Brock Lesnar was among them and I think it's a dream match-up. The fans wants to see it; I want to see it. I'm very excited about this fight, so I immediately said yes.

Ariel Helwani: How long has this been in the works for?
Alistair Overeem: It's been in the works for, I would say, the last couple of weeks. I know that the parties had found a common ground to work on, the talks were positive and slowly they came together in the last couple of weeks, which resulted in this deal.

How are you going to get paid?
I'm going to be paid like any other fighter.

So you will be paid and then you will pay your management team, Golden Glory?
Yeah, but that was already the case before. From Strikeforce, I basically got a check so ...

Are you still able to fight for K-1?
No, I will only be fighting in the UFC.

Was Brock the only fight offered to you for your debut?
I got offered to fight for the championship belt but that would mean I had to wait, because of course dos Santos is fighting Velasquez Nov. 12, it's going to be a great fight, then probably these guys are going to need some healing time, relaxing time, so November plus six months, that will probably be May. I'm a fighter, I like to be active, so then some names came rolling out and Brock Lesnar was among them and I think it's a dream match-up. The fans wants to see it; I want to see it. I'm very excited about this fight, so I immediately said yes.

Does that mean that the winner of this fight will fight for the title?
Yeah.

How many fights is the contract for?
Do you want to have my credit card pin number as well, Ariel? (laughs)

I didn't want to know how much it was for, just how many fights.
That was going to be your next question. Of course, I can't get into all the contract details unfortunately for you guys.

Is it your understanding that Lesnar is 100 percent healthy now?
I expect him to be 100 percent. I mean, he's a professional athlete for some period of time now. So he'll be 100 percent, I'm not worried about that. But basically, I'm just focusing on myself. I'm going to make sure I'm 100 percent, 120 percent, because Brock is a very strong, big guy, and I don't really worry about his shape.

Is this your first time at the UFC office in Las Vegas?
It is, actually. It is.

What do you think of it?
Well, it's big. It looks very professional. I had no idea what to think, actually. Lot of staff running around, they have a great kitchen, they are drinking a lot of UFC water. It's a very pleasant environment. The energy is good, a lot of enthusiastic people, everybody is motivated.

How does it feel to finally sign with the UFC after all these years?
Honestly, it feels like one of the biggest days in my life, a sort of life-changing thing. UFC is really big, they just did the FOX deal, you have all these possible match-ups happening right now, so for me, it's a very exciting time, the team is very excited, UFC people are very excited.

Have a feeling Brock gets injured and pulls out of fight and gets replaced with Kongo, Struve or some other lame ass.

I think so as well, I really don't believe that DW is going to sacrifice one of his big names so early.

The only other thing that can top this is Dan Henderson vs Jon Jones.

overeem by guillotine choke?

overeem doesn't have the best subs but his sprawls and guillotine attempts are very strong.

i can see brock eating a few punches and leaving himself open to a guillotine in one of his takedown attempts.

Lesner will get knocked out, he is a straight up bum and always was.

I don't understand what the UFC is thinking putting this matchup together. Lesnar is their biggest cash cow, and Reem is gonna turn that cow into sirloin steak.

Not that I'm complaining, I can't wait for this fight.

Lesnar's health issues are going to cut his career short. Both the UFC and Lesnar are aware of this, so they're trying to make the most money now.

Why the hell isn't this fight on New Years Eve? New Years Eve is when the families get together and the exposure for this fight will be huge.

The fight is on a Friday night.

Two f*cking giants going at it. The appeal is there. I can't wait, hopefully they change it to the 31st on Saturday. So I can see it with the family.

BTW fun fact, this the first UFC on a Friday night in over 12 years. Kinda reminds me when HBO put boxing on Friday night. I gotta change plans.

Should be interesting. But Lesnar, for all intents, and purposes........is done. He just can't stay healthy.

This is unfair to Lesnar.. every time he gets over his illness they chuck him back in vs top guys.. he should be fighting some easier fights for once especially after being so ill.

If he had 1 or 2 comeback fights then thought Reem i'd put money on him.. but this is too soon

Also it's not like Brock is the only one who doesn't like to be hit.. overeem has a bit of history cracking under pressure.

It's an interesting fight for sure though... Overeem is not a great wrestler.. Brock has taken everyone down he has been in against and will likely do the same to Reem. Will Reem be able to get out and up as quick as Cain?

He took the likes of Mir, Herring, Carwin down very easily and kept them there.. had more trouble with Couture.. but then Couture is a great wrestler and it was what Lesnars 3rd fight? He also tried to pass Cain too quickly
