Overeem explains Lesnar call out

Thursday, February 06, 2014

After his win over Frank Mir at UFC 169, Alistair Overeem told Joe Rogan exactly who he wanted to fight next: Brock Lesnar. The call out was a weird one as Lesnar hasn't fought in two years, but Overeem explained where it came from to Ariel Helwani on the MMA Hour:

“I believe I read somewhere that he wanted to come back, and that he believed he didn't fight because of the health conditions and that it would have been different if he was healthy,” Overeem told host Ariel Helwani. “He was talking about maybe a comeback, and I thought he wanted to fight me because of his last fight, maybe a rematch. With Brock, you have to take it with a grain of salt.”
