Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem will meet in December it what will be a true case of striker vs. grappler, Overeem_s stellar K-1 level striking vs. Lesnar_s stand out wrestling.
Frank Mir, who has fought Lesnar twice, talked about the New Year_s Eve heavyweight showdown this week and in his opinion, it_s Lesnar_s outstanding wrestling that will be the difference:
“Honestly, I think Brock will win pretty easily,” Mir told ESPN.com.
“I think we’re going to see the closest thing to a grappler versus striker match you’ll see nowadays. Brock is going to cover up; maybe throw one jab. He’ll rush Overeem to the cage, reach down for a leg and rip him down."
“I don’t think he’s going to get off his back. I’d be very shocked -- I’d applaud Overeem if he got off his back.”
