Former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion “King Mo” Lawal offered up his standup recipe for Brock Lesnar to take out also-former Strikeforce champ Alistair Overeem next Saturday at UFC 141.

In an interview on MMA Insiders radio talk show, Mo laid out his recipe for what former UFC heavyweight champion Lesnar needs to do: “If I were Brock, I’d jab and then jab again, jab, jab… But all of them fake. You know, in wrestling, if the guy doesn’t respond to your fake attacks, then you go and take him down. If the opponent responds to false attacks, then you attack with punches.”

King Mo gave further pointers: “It’s really important that Brock have his takedowns ready because without such preparation he’ll get knocked out or hurt. Overeem is the wrong person to try and knockout standing.”

What about you, keen reader, what are your thoughts on what Brock Lesnar should do to get past the Dutch UFC first-timer?
