LAS VEGAS - If you're batty for Brock Lesnar tonight against Alistair Overeem you may have missed your chance to get the former UFC heavyweight champ at his best betting number.

Lesnar has been a decent-sized underdog all week. Now that the casual fans are starting to fire on the main event at UFC 141, the fight has become a near even call.

Overeem was as high as minus-160 earlier this week. At the MGM, a few hours before the fight goes down, Overeem is now just minus-125 on the Las Vegas strip.
