Alistair Overeem made short work of Brock Lesnar at UFC 141 this past weekend and spoke about how he had predicted the finish to the bout the evening before in his hotel room while speaking at the post fight press confernce:
â€œ[Lesnar] hasnâ€™t fought in a long time, so I think he upgraded his game. That is what every fighter should do. He was getting predictable only going for the takedowns. I was ready for whatever he was gonna throw at me.â€
â€œAfter one of the first knees ... he didnâ€™t come for the takedown, as [I knew] he would. After that, we would come in the clinch and he would disengage. Usually, Brock is a guy that comes straight forward, but he was not doing that. Then I knew that the knees bothered him.â€
â€œI get my confidence from training. Training, despite the distractions, was going good. Guys couldnâ€™t take me down, so I felt good and I felt confident even though Brock is a big, strong guy. I just felt that I was going to beat him up.â€
