Former Strikeforce and DREAM Heavyweight Champion Alistair Overeem makes his long-awaited UFC debut Friday night at UFC 141: “Lesnar vs Overeem” in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Dutch striking sensation faces former UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar in the main event on the card.
Overeem’s road to the UFC hasn’t been an easy one and his participation on Friday’s card came into question this month after he missed a pre-fight drug test. He now steps into the Octagon for the first time and spoke with USA Today’s MMAjunkie.com on Tuesday about making his UFC debut.
