Georges St Pierre was a pay-per-view star during the height of his career from 2008 to 2013. However, Conor McGregor proudly holds that title now. The Irishman is the current UFC flagship star and he can easily pull in impressive figures in pay-per-view, especially with the Floyd Mayweather fight increasing his popularity.

Fans have been speculating a fight between both MMA fighters as GSP returns to the Octagon. If GSP successfully proves his mettle against Michael Bisping at UFC 217, then the clamour for the fight against McGregor would surely push up.

Alistair To Face Fabricio In July

If you are wondering when you will see Alistair Overeem in action, he would be having a matchup with Fabricio Werdum who is a heavyweight champion of the UFC.

Alistair is a former champion of Strikeforce; the two fighters teaming up for the event on July 8th are something worth waiting for. The game would be held at T-Mobile Arena in the city of Las Vegas. The matchup was confirmed recently by MMAFighting.com.

Overeem with statistics 42-15 and one NC would be participating in this bout as a winner of five fights of the past six ones that he participated in before. Four of the fights were via knockout rounds. The only loss that he experienced in these games was the loss he experienced in the first round to Stipe Miocic who is a UFC heavyweight champion.


It looks as if a very significant heavyweight bout could be headed towards March 4’s UFC 209, which is scheduled to go down from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

According to a report by ESPN’s Brett Okamoto, third ranked Alistair “The Reem” Overeem and seventh ranked Mark “The Super Samoan” Hunt have verbally come to terms regarding a bout for this event. The match would serve as a rematch of their 2008 fight.

Overeem is coming off of a stoppage defeat to reigning champion Stipe Miocic last September at UFC 203. Prior to that match, the Dutchman had been enjoying an impressive four-fight winning streak that included victories over former champions Andrei Arlovski and Junior Dos Santos as well as Roy Nelson and Stefan Struve to earn a shot at heavyweight gold.

Overeem Doesn’t Think Brock Lesnar Will Return To UFC again

The 34 years old Mixed Martial Artist from Netherlands, Alistair Overeem has said that he does not think that Brock Lesnar is at all likely to start fighting mixed martial arts ever again. If Brock Lesnar indeed comes back to octagon then Overeem would like it very much to be his opponent but the Dutch Martial Artist thinks that there is almost no chance of that actually happening. In his professional career as a mixed martial artist, Alistair Overeem has won 38 matches and has lost only 14. Overeem won three UFC matches and also lost 3. He said that honestly he does not think that Brock Lesnar will return to UFC.

Overeem had a chance to fight Brock Lesnar in the year 2011. Their fight was UFC 141’s main event. Overeem managed to secure victory in the very first round by Technical Knockout. After that defeat, Lesnar announced that he will not be competing in the octagon anymore and went back to continue his career as a professional wrestler.  The president of UFC, Dana White has indicated not too long ago that there is a chance of Brock Lesnar returning to fight in the octagon but Overeem still thinks that there is no chance of that actually happening.

Alistair Overeem destroys Struve

Not many people would consider Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC’s Heavyweight Alistair Overeem to be someone capable of doing any damage. He is one of the best knockout artists in the sport while standing but just as Stefan Struve found out, he can do a good job on the ground as well.

The two Dutchmen were matched against each other on the card of a recent UFC Fight Night and the action was power packed to say the least.

Overeem came at his compatriot right away and looked to lock onto the body of Struve before turning and tossing him down onto the ground. This was the first time that Struve has fought in more than one year and the seven foot fighter did a good job at the beginning to contain his compatriot.
