The 2010 K-1 World Grand Prix champion, Alistair Overeem (36-12 MMA, 1-1 UFC), is being targeted for a late summer octagon return according to multiple sources. The former Strikeforce heavyweight champion is being rumored to to compete at UFC 164, which is a pay-per-view event set for August 31 at Milwaukee’s Bradley Center.
Overeem’s opponent has yet to be announced, however, Travis Browne (14-1-1 MMA, 5-1-1 UFC) seems to be the name floating around the internet as the Reem’s future challenge.
Alistair last saw action at UFC 156 in February, where he suffered a knockout loss to Antonio Silva in the third round of their fight. Prior to the “Bigfoot” bout, Overeem defeated former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar at UFC 141 via TKO.
