Ubereem vs Cocksword on December 30th

A week or so back, there were strong-ish rumours from multiple sources that Ubereem and Dana White’s little pissing contest was not only dribbling to a end, but Alistair was making the leap to the UFC to boot.  Much like that time you heard from multiple independent sources that your mom likes it rough, there was truth to these tales too.

Current bench-rider Frank Mir declared that he wanted a piece of that horsemeat, but I guess the combination of Mir’s last two less-than-awesome fights and Overeem’s shitshow with Werdum was enough to convince the Zuffa brass to go big for The Reem’s UFC debut.  And so it will now be a battle of the huge totally-not-roided hype machines, as Overeem will meet Brock Lesnar at an as-yet un-numbered (UFC 141?) event on December 30th in Las Vegas.

“Brock is a big name, a dangerous guy, and this is a dream matchup,” Overeem told The Times on Tuesday, just after signing a standard UFC fight contract in the office of Chairman Lorenzo Fertitta. “Brock’s a big guy, an exciting wrestler with his takedowns.

“I want to see this fight myself. Overall, I’m a different fighter. A striker, athletic, big. These are going to be two big trucks going at it on a collision course.”

The Dec. 30 winner will be first in line to fight the winner of a Nov. 12 fight between Velasquez and Junior Dos Santos.

“This is the fight the fans want,” UFC President Dana White said. “Both of these guys are monsters. Can Lesnar take Overeem down?”

Fertitta said the Strikeforce belt won’t be part of the promotion.

Some might bitch about Brock getting a title eliminator in his first fight after losing the belt in ass-kicking fashion, but it’s not like there’s a whole lot of options.  Frank Mir’s apparently in the doghouse, Shane Carwin’s riding two losses, and… yeah, there’s really no one else unless they want to test if Big Nog got his chin repaced at the same time as his hips and knees.  And that dangling carrot was already in place for Brock’s fight with Dos Santos, but he went and got TKO’d by poopgut first, so they basically owe it to him.  Meanwhile, the Strikeforce heavyweight strap officially joins the growing pile in a dusty closet in Scott Coker’s basement.

But fuck all that noise anyway.  The point is, this is a blockbuster fight that’ll test both if Brock can handle another powerful striker, and if Overeem can handle some UFC-style wrestling.  Whose cuisine reigns supreme, horsemeat or venison?  ” target=”_blank”>PLACE-AH BETS NOW!!!!!!!11one

    If Lesnar can make it to the 30th without getting injured he’ll take it by wrestle-fucking ground and pound. His ego will then blow the roof off the MGM grand immediately afterward.

    If Brock can’t hold Reem down he gets smashed. Brock is getting smashed. I see this as Zuffa banking off Brock’s name to bring Reem to the masses. Poopygut ain’t going to be around much longer whether it be from losses/getting beat up in embarrassing fashion or his illness.

  • kwagnuth

    Have you seen Reems resume? Brock is gonna go down faster than that little girl Reem was kicking around in the gym. He is gonna smash Brock like a bicycle and punch him in the stomache like he did that skinny boy. Then he will toss him around like he did to that woman. It’s gonna be awsome.

  • scissors61

    subo’s going to have a nervous breakdown over this fight 

  • frickshun

    Until Reem folds….

  • Garp

    “Stupid vicar.”
    Ben Henderson vs. Clay Guida was booked today too. I’d like to see the two of them take on Alistair Overeem like this:
    Place bets now!

  • kvelertak

    We’re finally going to see the KO of brock we’ve been waiting for. Can’t wait to see him finished and wiped from the sport.

    And to any people saying he’ll dominate on the ground – Brock won’t have the strength. He’ll toss his ass like he did that wife beater Rogers or stuff his takedowns.

    End game son.

  • iamphoenix

    i can’t donate any fucks to give about either 2 fighters…i just hope they come lubed, roided and ready to smash each others buttholes.

  • SST

    I’m calling it now: Reem by leg kick KO

  • Reverend Clint

    i predict it doesn;t live up to the hype… like the fighters involved

  • steve4192

    Brock is gonna rock out with his Swock out and show the fanboys that Overeem still folds up like a cheap suit when you put him in a bad position.

  • Redping

    I’m with Clint on this one but we all know that Brock Lesnar forgets how to fight if he gets hit in the face once. Cain is a hard puncher but for sure a uberknee is more damaging. If reem just charging-knee’s over and over again hoping for brock to shoot, he’ll murder him eventually. Overeem is good at saving energy at the expense of being exciting, maybe he can survive 1 round on the bottom. I doubt brock could survive a round on the feet if he can’t get him down though, this isn’t shane carwin

  • Blackula Jonez

    I can already see Brock on the witness stand pointing to a doll to show the lawyer where the bad dutchman kneed him.

  • Garp

    JDS beats Cain. Overeem beats Lesnar. JDS vs. Overeem in Rio megastadium.

  • KeyboardWarrior

    Todd duffee is quite the big guy, better striker than Brock, and he got raped in 19 seconds. I give Lesnars chin more credit than his but I still don’t see him winning.

  • kvelertak

    Don’t live up to the hype? Kind of like the last.. 2 years of GSP fights?

  • Reverend Clint

    ^true as well

  • noiseless

    ol’ dickchest will get his head knocked straight off.

  • glassjawsh

    don’t know who, but someone is going to look terrible in this fight (both?)

  • Omomatta


  • frickshun

    KeyboardWorryer–>Duffee took it on super short notice & didn’t exactly look focused when the bell sounded. He just lost his dream job & probably needed the paycheck.

    God damn the nuthuggery in here is hysterical!! Can we please review Reem’s sub-par career again & see where exactly he’s been impressive? HE HAS BEATED 1 NAME FIGHTER IN THE LAST 5 FUCKING YEARS!! And the Werdum fight was not exactly inspiring.

  • CAP

    The last few Lesnar performances are more of a factor for me than nuthuggery. Lesnar better hope for a takedown or he’s gonna get another embarrassing ass whooping. I can’t wait to see Lesnar tuck and run again.

  • glassjawsh

    I think what you’re interpereting as nuthuggery is just as much concern/doubt over how poopy guts will respond to yet another bout with a pretty brutal disease/protracted layoff as it is uberballswinging

  • Reverend Clint

    omo actually i believe that is a Smilodon

  • KeyboardWarrior

    ^Wasn’t aware it was short notice.
    But yes, Overeem doesn’t impress me either. His fight with Werdum was weird and I didn’t enjoy it. I guess he had his guard down to stop takedowns, but he copped more hits than he should’ve. When I look back on the Lesnar vs Cain fight I realize that Brock didn’t do as bad as I thought he did when I first watched it. He actually goes pretty hard in that fight, he was just outclassed. I do want Brock to win but still don’t see it happening. Just hoping for a good fight.
