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.
