"It doesn't get any bigger than this". Although, that isn't exactly true, that's the slogan being used for the recently released promotional poster for UFC 141 which will be headlined by Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem.
This will be the UFC debut of the K-1, DREAM, and Strikeforce heavyweight champion, in Overeem. Set to welcome him into the Octagon is Lesnar, who will be making his return from a second battle with diverticulitis. Based on the few appearances he has made since the surgery, the former UFC heavyweight kingpin seems to have lost a large amount of weight.
Betting odds currently has the bout pretty even, with Overeem being at -130 and Lesnar at +138.
