UFC 141: The Return Of Lesnar

UFC 141 is just one week away! Minnesota heavyweight and former UFC Champion Brock Lesnar makes his return to the cage after a 14-month layoff due to a rare illness. His opponent is former Strikeforce and DREAM Heavyweight champ Alistair Overeem. Overeem (35-11) was also crowned the 2010 K-1 World Grand Prix Champion, a prestigious standup combat sport tournament that may have come to an end in its current form.

Also fighting on the undercard will be another former Minnesota Gophers wrestling standout, Jacob Volkmann. A chiropractor practicing in White Bear Lake, Volkmann (13-2) is looking for his fifth-straight UFC victory against Efrain Escudero (18-3).
