Overeem to face Dos Santos in UFC 160
MANILA, Philippines – After losing to Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva in UFC 156, Alistair Overeem finally gets the fight he’s originally slated for.
Overeem will face former UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos in the co-main header of UFC 160 on May 25, according to MMA Fighting.
“The Reem” was supposed to challenge Dos Santos for the heavyweight title in 2012, but his fight license was suspended after testing positive for elevated testosterone levels.
Dos Santos then fought and lost his title to Cain Velasquez last December, while Overeem was still serving his suspension.
