This is about as close as a silverback gorilla match as we're going to get.

I see Lesnar shooting in and getting caught in a tight guillotine. Due to Lesnar's 50 inch neck, I see him escaping and smashing Overeem with Alistair eventually able to use his massive strength to get up and eventually thrown back down but survives the first round.

In the second, Alistair jabs Lesnar from a distance until Lesnar pushes him up against the cage and slams him down. This time, Overeem takes too much punishment and the ref steps in.

Brock via 2nd round TKO.

Don't worry about 500k...

UFC 121: 1.1 million buys.
UFC 116: 1.2 million buys
UFC 100: 1.6 million buys
UFC 91: 1.2 million buys

The one card he was on that had a co-main title bout (UFC 100) sold 1.6 million+ buys. That's $80,000,000 in pay per view revenue in 1 night.

Dana is sweating every night waiting for Brock to get back in the cage.

Fun fact: Since Brock Lesnar joined the UFC, only 1 card without him went to 1 million buys, which was Evans vs Rampage (UFC 114).

Good stuff! He certainly draws...man come to think of it. Vadummy/M-1 were idiots to not take the proposed fight between Fedor and Brock awhile back. They would have gotten a portion of the PPVs which most likely would have topped off at two million buys. But no...they wanted their co-promotion. Now what happens...his entire career went down the toilet. His legacy is still intact, but man what a precipitous fall.

Anyways it's gonna be a major blockbuster fight. Gotta go with "The Reem!"

That makes it worse for Lesner. Overeem has world class Kick boxing, which would probably make up for his wrestling...
