Overeem closed out his post-fight interview with UFC commentator Joe Rogan by saying he wants a rematch with Lesnar, whom he beat at UFC 141 in Dec. 2011.
“I have one more thing to say: I heard there’s word that Brock Lesnar is about to come back to the UFC. Well I’ll be here waiting for him!” Overeem said.
The rumor that Lesnar may return to the UFC started in December and has been perpetuated by Dana White, who said during the week that Lesnar wants to return to the UFC. Lesnar is paid well by WWE and has been busy with them, but White says he wants to come back when his schedule opens up.
Lesnar hasn’t fought since his loss to Overeem. His struggles with diverticulitis led him to retire from the UFC, but you better believe fans would love it if he returns and fights Overeem in a rematch. Who wouldn’t want to see that?
