Could Alistair Overeem be headed out the UFC’s front door?

Could Alistair Overeem be headed out the UFC’s front door?

UFC president Dana White was non-committal in regard to the future of Alistair Overeem Saturday night.

Overeem was knocked out for the second straight time, as Travis Browne landed a perfectly-placed front-kick to his chin in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night 26.

Earlier this year, the former Strikeforce heavyweight champion failed to put away Antonio Silva, allowing “Bigfoot” the chance to KO him instead. The loss knocked him out of the No. 1 contender spot he earned following a win in his Octagon debut vs. Brock Lesnar in 2011.

“I have no idea,” said White, when asked about Overeem’s future during his post-fight media scrum. “I don’t know.”

White added that things like that are not made the night of the fight, but you would have to think “The Reem” and his large salary are becoming more of a nuisance than an enjoyment at this point.

Prior to his recent losses, Overeem (36-13) had won eight straight, including victories over Lesnar and Fabricio Werdum.
