Former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar has been called upon to be an on-air analyst for this Saturday's UFC on Fox heavyweight title fight between Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos. Lesnar lost the belt to Velasquez by first-round TKO at UFC 121, and was scheduled to meet Dos Santos at UFC 131 before having to bow out due to a second bout with diverticulitis. Dana White addressed the idea of adding Lesnar to the analyst team on yesterday's UFC 141 conference call:
"[Lesnar] fought Cain Velasquez for the title, and he was supposed to fight and was getting ready to fight Junior Dos Santos. So his opinion is interesting. This show is going to focus on the heavyweights and the heavyweight championship."
Lesnar is scheduled to face Alistair Overeem in the main event of UFC 141, and both fighters will be on hand for a press conference before the UFC on Fox weigh-ins tomorrow. Overeem will be attending the UFC on Fox event, but likely won't have any on-air role.
