Alistair Overeem UFC Strikeforce

The time for talking is almost over. However, before Alistair Overeem (Pictured) makes his highly-anticipated big league debut against Brock Lesnar, Overeem took a few minutes to chop it up with 5thRound.com.

The former Strikeforce heavyweight champion touched on a number of topics, including the controversy surrounding his Octagon premiere, his exit from Xtreme Couture and what the fan reaction might be when he enters the cage against one of the UFC’s most popular athletes.

UFC 141 goes down tomorrow night inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The 265-pound top contender scrap headlines the pay-per-view broadcast.
