Brock Lesnar: I don't think there's a Heavyweight that has done what I've done in the UFCPosted on December 27, 2011, 07:28 PM by Trent Reinsmith
Brock Lesnar is set to return to the Octagon on Friday when he welcomes Alistair Overeem to the UFC in the main event at UFC 141. The fight will be Lesnar’s first since losing the UFC Heavyweight crown to Cain Velasquez back in October 2010.
Since losing the title, Lesnar underwent a tough stretch; being forced to withdraw from a scheduled fight against Junior dos Santos after suffering a second bout of diverticulitis. Now fully recovered from the surgery that removed a section of his colon Lesnar will look for a win over Overeem to launch him on the road back to the UFC title.
MMAFighting.com's Ariel Helwani caught up with Lesnar before he was to face Overeem. Some of the topics that they discussed inluded Lesnar's illness, his familiarity with Leanr, his career to date and very briefly, what it means to be an underdog.
