Jared Rosholt, the winningest heavyweight in the storied history of Oklahoma State University wrestling, tweeted a picture of himself and Overeem Monday morning, confirming that the three-time All-American was one of the big wrestlers "The Reem" flew to Holland to help him prepare for Lesnar.
Rosholt, the younger brother of former UFC middleweight Jake Rosholt, has made a successful transition to MMA, thus far. The 25-year-old debuted in February and since then has gone 4-0, finishing all of his opponents in either the first or second round. Rosholt finished his collegiate career in 20120 with an overall record of 125-27.
Overeem recently had to move his camp from Las Vegas back to Holland to take care of his cancer-stricken mother. This is his first fight since severing ties with his long-time team at Golden Glory.
UFC 141, headlined by Overeem vs. Lesnar, airs live on pay-per-view on Friday, Dec. 30.
