The UFC 141 pre-fight press conference took place today at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino main lobby in Las Vegas. UFC President Dana White led the proceedings, along with UFC 141 heavyweight headliners Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem, and co-headliners Nate Diaz and Donald Cerrone.
Fans and media questioned the fighters about their training and preparations. After the Q&A segment, White had the fighters face off for photo-ops. Things immediately got heated as Diaz and Cerrone squared off first. Words were exchanged and Diaz knocked Cerrone’s trademark cowboy hat off and gave him a hard push backward before UFC officials and team members separated the fighters. Contrarily, Lesnar and Overeem shook hands and kept it professional.
