UFC 141 places from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The main card airs live on Pay-Per-View at 10PM ET.

UFC Heavyweight Bout – Brock Lesnar (5-2) vs. Alistair Overeem (35-11)

This fight should be explosive as these two are massive, quick, and powerful fighters. Overeem is a world kickboxing champion while Lesnar is a NCAA wrestling champion. The key to this fight will be Overeem’s ability to fend off takedowns and stay conditioned. I think Lesnar will be aggressive from the start and push a pace that Overeem can’t handle. I see Lesnar winning this fight in the second round by TKO as he overwhelms Overeem with his wrestling and athleticism. FREE PICK – Brock Lesnar +120

UFC Lightweight Bout – Donald Cerrone (17-3) vs. Nate Diaz (14-7)

This lightweight bout should also be full of fireworks. I see Cerrone as being the one to beat in this one as he has better all-around skills. He should be able to win the striking battle with his kickboxing skills and I think he can match Diaz in wrestling. While Cerrone is very strong with his submissions, he is somewhat susceptible to chokes. I think he will avoid that against Diaz and control the fight to win a decision. FREE PICK – Donald Cerrone -275

UFC Welterweight Bout – Jon Fitch (23-3-1) vs. Johny Hendricks (11-1)

Jon Fitch is fighting for the first time in about 11 months. He has only lost once in the octagon in his career and that was to champion Georges St. Pierre. Hendricks is a solid fighter with a good wrestling background, but that plays right into Fitch. Fitch has not been out-wrestled by anyone in the UFC and I don’t see that happening Friday night either. Look for Fitch to earn another decision victory on his path to another title shot. FREE PICK – Jon Fitch -240
