This Friday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada the biggest (literally) Heavyweight match in UFC history will take place when former WWE Superstar Brock Lesner meets the only man to hold titles in MMA and K-1 Alistair ‘Demolition Man’ Overeem. There is a lot on the line when these two monsterous men meet in the Octagon as the winner will get a shot at Heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos.
The Co-Main event features former bull rider and Muai Thai specialist Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone who will look to keep his momentum going into 2012 when he faces Jiu Jitsu ace and member of the infamous Skrap Pack Nate Diaz. Also on the card former title contender Jon Fitch will look to make the climb back up the Welterweight ladder fellow wrestling standout Johny Hendricks.
Just to let Aussie viewers know, the prelim card that is shown on One HD is coming up on the tv guide as being on late Saturday night but if there is a change in the schedule I will let you know.
