Do you think Brock Lesnar will have any problem with the strength of Alistair Overeem? If Overeem does not have a chance to land a punch, but does somehow take Lesnar to the ground, from the sounds of things Lesnar would be able to just pop The Reem right off of him.
In a recent interview with TapouT News’ Mike Straka, Lesnar’s former WWE associate Kurt Angle spoke about Lesnar’s upcoming fight against Alistair Overeem and how Lesnar is the best athlete over 250 pounds.
I have a lot of respect for Brock. I think that in any fight he’s in he has a chance. You don’t realize how strong and how athletic Brock Lesnar is until you get in that ring with him. I’ve sparred with him in real wrestling. I’m not going to tell you who won, I’ll say I was very happy with the outcome. But I’m a much more experienced wrestler. Brock Lesnar is the best athlete over 250 that I’ve ever seen in my life. He benches over 600 pounds, I’ve seen him squat over 1,000 pounds. This guy is an animal, so you can’t say that he has no chance. He always has a chance and, you know what, he can take a punch. Of course, he’s gotten knocked down and he’s got knocked out, but he can take a punch. The guy’s an animal, so he has a shot every time he goes out there and I wish him the best.
