Tickets are now on sale for the blockbuster UFC 141: Lesnar vs. Overeem fight card and the UFC held a press conference today to let that be known and to begin promoting the fight, which takes place on New Year’s Eve weekend.
A former UFC heavyweight champion, Brock Lesnar will be returning from a lengthy layoff due to a flare-up of diverticulitis to take on Overeem, the Strikeforce and (interim) Dream heavyweight champion and K-1 2010 World Grand Prix winner. The victor between Lesnar and Overeem will fight the winner of tomorrow’s Cain Velasquez-Junior dos Santos heavyweight title fight.
UFC 141 goes down Friday, December 30 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
