Alistair Overeem shooting for return to the ring at UFC 164

Alistair Overeem shooting for return to the ring at UFC 164

UFC heavyweight Alistair Overeem entered the organization with high expectations and delivered in his initial offering by putting former champion Brock Lesnar away a little less than halfway through the rumble’s opening round. However, he’s been a disappointment ever since, seeing a title-shot go out the window due to testosterone use and losing in the subsequent scrap with Antonio Silva.

Overeem was ready to potentially rescue his reputation in a May 25 tilt with Junior dos Santos but was ultimately forced to withdraw as the result of an injury. Now it appears he’ll have to wait until early fall before attempting to remind the world of why he was ranked as one of the division’s top three competitors.

According to a report from MMAJunkie, Overeem is being looked at for an August 31 outing at UFC 164. The card is scheduled to take place in Milwaukee and is still in need of a main event.

The devastating Dutchman will be out to pick up his 37th career win the next time he takes to the Octagon. All but two of his victories heave featured some form of stoppage including a near-even balance between TKOs/submissions.
