Frank Mir says "muscled-up LHW" Alistair Overeem can't stop Brock Lesnar's double-legPosted on December 7, 2011, 10:41 AM by Joey Santosus
Former Heavyweight Champion Frank Mir, who will rematch Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 140, shares his thoughts on the recent title fight between Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos and talks about the upcoming clash pitting Brock Lesnar against Alistair Overeem. Mir feels that Overeem is a "muscled-up" Light Heavyweight and says that, unless the Dutchman can land a knockout punch early, Lesnar will put him on his back 99 out of 100 times.

"I think Overeem doesn't move his feet well enough to get out of the way. I think that he might think that the guys he's wrestling with, their doubles are something he can sprawl on, but he's not stopping Brock's shot. I think he really has to come out with the mindset that he better land a shot and knock Brock out before he gets going, and I just don't see that happening. ... If they fight each other 100 times, I think Brock's going to get the takedown 99 times, and I don't see how Alistair is going to get up. I know that everybody looks at his traps and arms and they see a big guy, but I look at the guy's waist and legs and I see a guy that's just a well-muscled up Light Heavyweight."
