UFC 141 Tonight: Preview, Coverage, Lesnar Quotes, Overeem Kicked Out, Weigh-In Highlight
-- One of the biggest UFC events of the year takes place TONIGHT (instead of UFC's normal Saturday night time slot) as former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar faces former Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem in a true clash of the titans. We will have live round-by-round coverage of the event at our sister site, FightLine.com, throughout the evening. We will have results of the top fights here at WrestlingINC.com after the event has ended. You can check out FightLine.com by clicking here.

-- FightLine.com has an article with quotes from Lesnar, who said that he didn't even know who Overeem was when he was offered the fight. "I mean, I really didn't look at other people outside of the UFC heavyweight division," Lesnar said. "I'm not a guy that sits around and ponders about that kind of stuff. For me, I sit around and ponder about white tail deer and hunting and my family, things like that. Not, 'Oh, my dream match up would be a fight with so-and-so.' But, obviously, this is a guy who's threatening. You don't get into this company and into this division if you're not a threat. This isn't bingo hall fighting, or your local fight stage. It's the real thing and anything can happen. I feel the greatest I've felt in a long time and I've actually just sat and pondered about how good I feel and how fortunate I am just to be back here." You can check out the full article at this link.

-- FightLine.com also has an exclusive story about Lesnar's camp having issues with Overeem training at Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas, resulting in Overeem having to leave the training facility. Lesnar's camp apparently took issue because gym owner Randy Couture had been an integral part of Lesnar's training in the past and had signed a disclosure with them.
