UFC On Fox: Alistair Overeem Breaks Down Velasquez Vs. Dos Santos


Alistair Overeem has a rather large stake in Saturday's UFC on Fox main event. The massive Dutch striker, should he best former champion Brock Lesnar, will battle the winner of Cain Velasquez vs. Junior dos Santos for the UFC heavyweight throne.

On the eve of the event, Overeem took a moment to break down which man he believes will emerge victorious. Video after the jump.

Said Overeem:

They're the two top guys. Then after that the winner is going to face the other two top guys, which is me and Brock. So it's basically us four, top of the world, and within one year you're going to see the best fighter in the world coming up.

Hard to predict a winner on this level. Both are great athletes. I think form and strategy will be a decisive factor. I do think Cain has a slight advantage. I think he's a more rounded fighter. I think with his experience, he's going to be able to take [dos Santos] down and then we're going to see what Junior dos Santos' ground game is all about.
