Alistair Overeem Asks: “Who Cares About Brock" Lesnar?

Alistair Overeem made his UFC debut at UFC 141 in December of 2011, scoring a first round TKO win over former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar.

There have been rumblings about a potential Lesnar return to the UFC after he became a free agent, but Overeem doesn’t think Lesnar will make a comeback.

“I don’t think he’s gonna come back,” Overeem told TMZ Sports (via Jed Meshew of MMA Fighting). “He’s 43 years old. To be honest, I don’t think he’s gonna come back. The last time he came back, it was a debacle so I don’t think he’s gonna come back. I was wrong about the last time though, because I predicted the same thing. It actually did become a debacle, but we’ll see what happens.”

Lesnar last competed at UFC 200, fighting Mark Hunt to a no-contest due to a pair of failed drug tests. Overeem, who is ranked in the top five of the UFC heavyweight division, doesn’t think the fans can about Lesnar anymore.

“I beat him up,” Overeem said. “So if somebody wants a rematch, it would be him. I already did it. Why would I chase him? Who cares about Brock? Which fans? He’s not coming back. He’s 43 years old, he’s flunked tests, it’s over with him. He’s not coming back. Last time the waived the testing for him and still he got into trouble. It’s been a debacle. He’s not gonna come back. Listen, if he does, all hats off to him, but I don’t think he’s gonna come back.”

The heavyweight star just headlined UFC Vegas 9, defeating Augusto Sakai by fifth round TKO.
