Overeem and Lesnar ready to contest the shot at the heavyweight rod

Las Vegas - was held a conference call with 141 participants from the former champion UFC heavyweight Brock Lesnar UFC, and Strikeforce heavyweight former champion Alistair Overeem, who will meet on Friday December 30th to determine who will fight against champion Junior Dos Santos.

The two fighters will meet at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in an event which this time will be on a Friday and open from 7 pm PT/10 pm ET.

Overeem was asked about his focus for this fight, and very quiet replied: "I tried to stay focused on the fight, relaxing, although I have now a situation with my mother, but I'm ready." This is because her mother knew she was sick last week so had to attend this family affair.

For his part Lesnar said he has trained hard and is motivated by his return. "It's a sport that you must always evolve to be on top. I can not wait to return to the Octagon, "and said ready after 14 months of absence after the last time he entered the Octagon:" I'm competitive and there is electricity in the air, I'm happy. " Also on recovery and had to undergo surgery, said: "There is nothing easy about it. But we all want to be healthy, it feels good to be healthy. Looking back of course you think I could have done some things different about the surgery. But you have to live with your decisions. "

This being the debut of Alistair Overeem in the UFC was questioned about the extra pressure that might mean, but said: "The bigger the fight, and more media attention and more people see it, and I have better performance best for me. Sure, there is pressure to be the first fight in the UFC, but normal. "

Overeem was adamant in his statement on the outcome of the fight: "We are aggressive, we want to end a fight, I see that we get beyond the first or second round," what Lesnar agreed: "I feel like this is a heavyweight bout. Both want to end the fight. I do not think we get to the five rounds. "

Lesnar, considered the underdog for this fight said about it: "I do not mind being favorite or not, at the end of the day it was resolved to go in there. It is the beauty of this sport. My intention is to win and secure Alistair also. " While Overeem said: "I am a complete fighter. I have wrestling and Jiu Jitsu, but I prefer a KO on a submission, always prefer to believe that anyone ".

Clash of Styles in the UFC 141

The next December 30 in Las Vegas two giants of mixed martial arts clash in the main event of UFC 141 to decide who the next opponent super heavyweight champion of the UFC, the Brazilian Junior dos Santos.

Brock Lesnar Alistair Overeem and collide inside the Octagon in a battle that has different styles for the stars. When we say giant, not just for its quality, but also because both are huge physically. Lesnar measured 6'3 "and weighs 265 pounds, Overeem, 6'5" and weight 265.

The way to fight the former champion Brock is well known in the U.S., power struggle, great fitness and take his opponent to the mat to finish them to death or submission. Opponents defeated as Frank Mir, Randy Couture and Shane Carwin can give veracity of this.

His 5-2 record and his arrival at UFC not long ago, in 2008, could make one think that Lesnar is inexperienced or lacks the tusk of the veterans in this sport. But there seems to be the case, as this warrior and national collegiate champion in his senior year at the University of Minnesota and his record there was 106-5. In addition, their rivals in the UFC have been first class.

Many have doubted its quality that comes from the WWE to MMA and always comes out the spirit of entertainer , but he managed to do in so little time deserves recognition for all. UFC champ was in his third fight by knocking out Couture, Mir took revenge in a brutal manner Carwin and finished him in two rounds. Want more?

It is true that knocked down with the Mexican Cain Velasquez, but until minutes before losing his UFC Championship Junior dos Santos many said was invincible and that Cain was among the 10 best fighters pound for pound.

His opponent this time is quite the opposite. It has an awesome experience stamped 1/11/35, was champion of Strikeforce and Dream, fought in Pride and even had the title of K-1.

Overeem has fists of steel, its muay Thai kicks are lethal and secure these two will be the main weapons against Brock. To top it off the Dutch fighter has won 33 of his last 35 fights and is in the prime of his career.

Both are facing something new in their careers. Lesnar has never had anyone taller and stronger than him in front, while Overeem has never faced a fighter as his rival, with a force and drive stunning.

Two mixed martial arts schools. The fighting with Lesnar and kickboxing and muay Thai with Overeem.

Predicting a favorite in this battle is very difficult, but I am inclined by the "Viking" of Minnesota, who is healthy, eager to return to the top and you can box better than they looked in his last fight with Velasquez.

The table is set and the risk is great for me to make this forecast, it looks closed the fight and the quality of those involved, but try to predict what will happen, without wishing to be a seer, of course ...

There we see.

'Minotauro' Nogueira and Rogeiro: warrior blood brothers at UFC 140

The Nogueira brothers share the undercard of UFC 140 on December 10 in Toronto, Canada, in what will be one of the most anticipated events of the year. Two world-renowned veterans in a relatively young sport. Pioneers when venturing into lands hitherto unexplored, these brothers made a brilliant career in the now defunct Pride Fighting Championship.

The story of Rodrigo · ¨ Nogueira Minotauro is a self-improvement, effort and courage. At four years old, went into the martial arts of judo's hand until he suffered a terrible accident that nearly ended his life. Minotaur was hit by a truck, being in a coma for twenty days, with many of their organs involved and a poor prognosis. After eleven months in the hospital, Rodrigo walk again.

Rogerio Nogueira, Little Nog or ¨ ¨ As many know him, has had to live under the shadow of his brother for several years, despite having made a brilliant career with wins over Dan Henderson, Kazushi Sakuraba, Guy Mezger and Alistair Overeem (in twice). Roger has competed in the Olympic boxing team, earning the gold medal for his country at the 2006 Pan American Games. On the night of December 10, Rogerio face another veteran: Tito Ortiz on the urgent need to win after two straight losses:

· Training has been great. I'm very confident. I think it will be a great evening and go for the knockout. Try to give a good show because the last time I did not either. I am better trained this time. I know all about the game that Tito Ortiz suggests, I should have fought him for some time. I've been studying their movements for nearly a year · Roger explains.

In a different reality, Minotaur will have the chance to face Frank Mir again after that fateful December night in 2008 when it was knocked out for the first time in his career. The Brazilian will want to take off this thorn with a victory to ratify what was done in his native country this summer. After the knee and hip surgeries, Rodrigo seems to have found its best.

Mir will try to show that his first win was not the result of physical decline of his rival, but on its own merits and abilities inside the Octagon. As expressed in more than one occasion, the U.S. hopes that there is no excuse once · ¨.

The two fights will coestelares family and Nogueira team competing and supporting each other. Usually these two fighters are very dear to the public, but its rivals are also popular door and also former champions in search of new opportunities.

Tito Ortiz, Mexican-American soldier returns to the Octagon UFC

One of the great questions of UFC 140 in Toronto, Canada, on Saturday December 10 is the performance of former light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz against Brazilian Antonio Rogerio "Minotouro" Nogueira.

Tito is coming off a TKO in the second assault against Rashad Evans in Philadelphia in August and if we add his last five fights only has one win, the knockout surprise that Ryan Bader gave him in Las Vegas on July 2 in the UFC 132.

Losses to Lyoto Machida, Forrest Griffin and Matt Hamill Bader preceded his triumph over when it seemed that the Mexican-American fighter had no gunpowder in his arsenal.

His career (01/09/17) is rich in achievements and the history of the UFC's light heavyweight champion has been most often successfully defend his title with five wins. Precisely the main event of UFC 140 is for the championship of that division between Jon "Bones" Jones and Lyoto Machida.

This fighter originally from Huntington Beach, California, came to the UFC in 1997 and in 2000 was crowned champion after beating Brazil unanimous decision over Wanderlei Silva. Thereafter, successfully defended his title five times until it fell in 2003 with Randy Couture, another legend of MMA.

After 15 years of career in this sport, Tito is remembered for his explosive personality, his strong comments and his peculiar way of selling his fights with his opponents, but he is also remembered for his fight against Ken Shamrock, Chuck Liddell, Vitor Belfort and Forrest Griffin, among others.

Like any good fighter, won some, lost others. He won, lost to champions. He knocked and knocked out. He talked a lot and shut up.

A symbol of his career is that every time he walks into the octagon wearing a flag on one side is the American and the other Mexican. And that's your mix, is its origin, is its brand. Every time I speak of her Mexican heritage, by his father, Tito will light up eyes and appreciated the support of their fans.

It is clear that the end of his glorious career is near. Your age and yields force him to think about retirement, but it is also clear that the times that fit going to fight, Tito Ortiz will entertain fans of the sport and leave everything in the effort.

Either Spanish or English, even in two languages, Tito is an immortal of the game and when you hang up the gloves its destination must be the Hall of Fame UFC, his home, his nest, his permanent inn.

For all those memories, thanks champ!

There we see.
