Five Rounds at UFC 141 Unlikely, According to ‘Demolition Man’

By Sherdog.com Staff Dec 23, 2011
Former Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem will make his long-awaited promotional debut when he collides with Brock Lesnar in the UFC 141 main event on Dec. 30 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Neither man has ever fought beyond three rounds, and Overeem, during a pre-fight conference call to promote the event, admitted he did not expect that fact to change:

“I’m preparing for five rounds, but looking at myself [and] the type of fighter I am, looking at Brock and the type of fighter he is and looking at our characters, we’re aggressive. We’re not the type of guys who back up. We’re fighters who want to finish fights. I’m going to be doing that Dec. 30, and I expect him to be doing that Dec. 30. I don’t see it going past the first or second round, second round maximum.”
