Brock Lesnar returns to UFC - after a successful recovery from his diverticulitis surgery - against Alistair Overeem on December 30.

Brock Lesnar, the former UFC heavyweight champion, will face Strikeforce’s then-heavyweight king – Alistair Overeem – as he returns to action on December 30 in Las Vegas. This news was confirmed by UFC president, Dana White, on his Twitter account. The upcoming mega match-up will feature the two of the greatest heavyweights in mixed martial arts in an event that will cap off UFC’s 2011. The said bout will be a five-round main event that will give its winner the next shot at the UFC heavyweight title.

Brock Lesnar returns to the Octagon for the first time after his last bout a year ago. He is supposed to be back in action last June, but a flare up from his ongoing battle with diverticulitis put him back on the sidelines. Now, completely recovered from his surgery, Brock Lesnar returns to UFC and has a very big challenge to face.

Meanwhile, Alistair Overeem officially moves to UFC after his brief exit from the Zuffa fold. He was removed from the Strikeforce roster after contract issues emerged between his camp, Team Golden Glory, and the promotion. Alistair Overeem will debut in the Octagon without the Strikeforce heavyweight title, which he vacated when he left the promotion just a month ago.

The bout between Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem is set to take place on Friday, December 30, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, presumably for an event that will be called UFC 141.
