Rumors of WWE superstar and former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar returning to the Octagon are getting stronger day by day. But yet, Dutch powerhouse Alistair Overeem finds a Lesnar comeback hard to picture.
His reason? There are too many big sharks in the tank right now.
“To be honest, he is not going to come back. He remembers in the beginning it was easy, but at the end it was very hard for him,” Overeem said. “He is a guy that kind of goes where it’s easy. He’s not going to come back. It’s too hard. The competition is too stiff.”

Alistair Overeem beat Brock Lesnar in 2011 by TKO in the first round. It has been Lesnar’s final fight in the UFC to date.
After only three MMA fights and two victories, Lesnar managed to win the UFC heavyweight championship from Randy Couture in 2008. He defended it two times before losing the belt to Cain Velasquez and eventually losing again to Overeem. He then returned to WWE where he managed to have a very successful run again to this day.
Overeem is set to face Roy Nelson this Saturday at UFC 185 in Dallas, Texas.
