Overeem 110% Mentally and Physically, Lesnar Promises to see “the same guy who beat Frank Mir to a pulp”

Former Strikeforce heavyweight champ, Alistair Overeem explains that despite all the distractions he’s 100% when he faces former UFC heavyweight champion, Brock Lesnar at UFC 141 in Las Vegas, Nevada on December 30th, who promises fans he’ll be the same guy that beat Frank Mir to a pulp just a couple of years ago.

Overeem, speaking via MMAFighting.com, said:

“My mental focus is entirely there. Of course, you have to do this and do that, but I get over it fairly quick because I see it as my work. I’m 100 percent there, I’m 100 percent motivated. I know I’m going to beat him. I know it’s my time. The good thing is, and I tend to view it through the good lens, it can work in my favor because you’re going to take away the critic’s arguments. I’m going to be the most tested fighter in MMA history.”

“Despite all distraction I’m good. I feel good. I put the work in since August already. My conditioning is good. My preparation has been a little bit rocky with all the distractions coming down, but mentally and physically I’m 110 percent here.”

Lesnar, speaking during a media conference call, said:

“Look, I’ve had a great camp. This is the best I have felt in years and lardy-lardy-da… I could go through all the clichés about how in shape I am but the fact is, I know myself and my own body and I know that I am back. I am 100%. I am as fast, as strong and as explosive as I’ve ever been and you’re going to see the same guy who beat Frank Mir to a pulp at UFC 100. If I go in and execute my game-plan, then I am winning this fight. That’s the bottom line here. Overeem says he is knocking me out in two rounds. Well, I am glad he has the ability to see the future. That’s his dream. I have my own dreams of winning this fight and going on to get my belt back. And on Friday December 30 his dream will be over.The surgically repaired Lesnar (5-2) is coming off a first round shellacking at the hands of former division champion Cain Velasquez at UFC 121 back in October 2010. It was Brock’s first loss inside the Octagon since serving up a ham-hock to Mir in his Octagon debut at UFC 81 way back in February 2008.”
