With rumours continuing to swirl that Brock Lesnar will return to MMA, the man who beat him into retirement, Alistair Overeem, took the opportunity to call him out during his post fight interview with Joe Rogan at UFC 169.

Overeem picked up a unanimous decision win over Frank Mir in a bout he told Rogan he played it safe in, cautious of Mir’s submission game.

Before leaving the cage he sent a message out to Lesnar:

“I hear there’s word that Brock Lesnar is about to come back to the UFC,” Overeem told Rogan. “Well, I’ll be here waiting for him.”
