Frank Mir on Brock Lesnar vs. Alistair Overeem: “Honestly, I think Brock will win pretty easily.”

Former UFC heavyweight champion, Frank Mir predicts a “pretty easy win” for his long-time rival, Brock Lesnar when the former UFC heavyweight champion faces off with the last man to hold the Strikeforce heavyweight title, Alistair Overeem at UFC 141 in Las Vegas, Nevada on December 30th, 2011.

Mir, speaking via, said:

“Honestly, I think Brock will win pretty easily. I think we’re going to see the closest thing to a grappler versus striker match you’ll see nowadays. Brock is going to cover up; maybe throw one jab. He’ll rush Overeem to the cage, reach down for a leg and rip him down…. I don’t think he’s going to get off his back. I’d be very shocked — I’d applaud Overeem if he got off his back.”
