When Bruce Buffer announces the winner of this weekend’s championship clash between current title-holder Cain Velasquez and top challenger Junior dos Santos the MMA world may not know who will be next in line for a shot at the belt but, thanks to an official press release, will at least have a clear picture of the potential options.

According to the UFC, the headliner between Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem at UFC 141 will serve to determine the heavyweight division’s top contender meaning whoever emerges from the bout with his hand raised will have earned a 2012 shot at the title.

“Brock Lesnar is 110 percent healthy and ready to get the world title back,” said UFC President Dana White of the December 30 match-up. “He asked for the toughest test we could find for him and there’s no doubt that Alistair Overeem fits the bill. He’s been a champion in other organizations and came to UFC to fight the best guys in the world. He wants to show everyone that he’s the number one heavyweight in the sport. This fight is the perfect fight to close out 2011.”

Lesnar is coming off a loss to Velasquez but had won four in a row prior to the defeat including victories over Randy Couture, Shane Carwin, and Frank Mir. However, he hasn’t fought in more than a year after undergoing a lengthy recovery process for diverticulitis and related surgery.

Overeem has only competed in MMA twice over the same period, finding success against Todd Duffee and Fabricio Werdum, but also wowed fight-fans by bringing home the K-1 World Grand Prix championship. The powerful Dutchman holds an overall record of 35-11 with an impressive 33 finishes to his credit.

Overeem Expects Quick Finish of Lesnar

In addition to Lesnar vs. Overeem, UFC 141 is also set to feature match-ups such as Nate Diaz vs. Donald Cerrone, Manny Gamburyan vs. Diego Nunes, and Jon Fitch vs. Johny Hendricks.
