So it’s about that time to complete that Alistair Overeem-Fabrício Werdum trilogy? In not so shocking news the UFC has resigned heavyweight man beast Alistair Overeem to a shiny new contract. Coming off a near decapitation of Junior dos Santos, Overeem was the hottest MMA free agent left on the market.
Sorry Bellator and Rizin fans, The Reem has some unfinished business left in the UFC’s heavyweight division. With Werdum expected to be ready to fight again in May, the timing is right for another Werdum vs. Overeem match-up. Also, sorry Cain and Stipe fans but the return of an Uberreem to the top of the heavyweight mountain makes for a much more interesting pay per view title fight.
