UFC 141 is official.
UFC 141 “Lesnar vs. Overeem” is scheduled to take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Friday, Dec. 30, and will air live on pay-per-view at 10pm ET/7pm PT. The card will be headlined by a heavyweight fight between former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar and former Strikeforce heavyweight champion/K-1 GP champion Alistair Overeem.
“Brock Lesnar is 110 percent healthy and ready to get the world title back,” White said. “He asked for the toughest test we could find for him and there’s no doubt that Alistair Overeem fits the bill. He’s been a champion in other organizations and came to UFC to fight the best guys in the world. He wants to show everyone that he’s the number one heavyweight in the sport. This fight is the perfect fight to close out 2011.”
Other match-ups announced for the card include Donald Cerrone vs. Nate Diaz and Jon Fitch vs. Johny Hendricks.
