Overeem calls out Brock Lesnar
After convincingly beating Frank Mir at UFC 169, Alistair Overeem let everyone know who he wanted to fight next in his post-fight interview:
When Overeem was speaking with commentator Joe Rogan, he decided to call out a former UFC champion that was the biggest pay-per-view draw in the sports history — Brock Lesnar.
“I hear there’s word that Brock Lesnar is about to come back to the UFC,” Overeem told Rogan. “Well, I’ll be here waiting for him.”
The fight however wasn't likely as Lesnar isn't in the UFC, and President Dana White was not too happy this Overeem's performance, as he said on the FOX Sports post-fight show:
“He comes out with a crappy performance, then he calls out a guy who doesn't even fight anymore…Not a great night for Alistair.”
