Alistair Overeem

Alistair Overeem

On the heels of the announcement that former Strikeforce champion Alistair Overeem would be facing Brock Lesnar in December, the odds are already out and putting the Dutchman as a slight favorite.

The odds come courtesy of oddsmaker Nick Kalikas from BetonFighting.com.

Overeem opens as a slight betting favorite with -135 odds, while the former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar comes back as a +105 underdog.

The odds remain very close, but Overeem has been dominant over his last several fights including wins over Fabricio Werdum and Brett Rogers.

Lesnar meanwhile will have been out of action for over a year when he returns in December. The former champion was once again stricken with a bout of diverticulitis earlier this year and forced back to the sidelines when he opted for surgery.

When Lesnar gets back in action he will face Overeem in a five-round main event fight at UFC 141 that will determine the next UFC heavyweight title contender.
