Default Alistair Overeem injured and out of UFC 160 Fight vs JDS

Fans will have to wait a little longer to see [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] vs. Junior dos Santos.

According to sources close to Overeem, the heavyweight recently suffered an undisclosed injury while training, which will sideline him for four-to-five weeks. As a result, Overeem's camp recently informed the UFC that he will be unable to fight dos Santos at UFC 160 on May 25.


Overeem is hoping to return to action against dos Santos in July, but as of right now, no decision has been made when he'll return and against who. Also, no word just yet on if dos Santos will remain on the UFC 160 card and fight someone else or wait for Overeem return.

JDS vs Mark Hunt Anyone?

"If I get the call for the fight, I'm there, of course," Hunt told MMAFighting.com Wednesday night, "and the fans are crazy for it, so it's good."

Hunt, who just knocked out Stefan Struve on Saturday at UFC on FUEL TV 8, didn't know about Overeem's injury, however, when he was asked about whether he would be interested in fighting the former UFC heavyweight champion in a little over two months, he didn't hesitate.

"Sounds like a pretty good idea to me," Hunt said in his typical casual way. "I'm not injured. I'm always down for a battle.

"I was born down. You know this."

Joey Maxim beat Curtis Sheppard, one of the most renowned punchers of the day, a few weeks after being starched by him.

Reem had what, 4 months to get ready? He'd be fine. And Thracian, the Tete-a-Tete with Nate was a very interesting watch.

Anyway WARRR HUNTUUUU!!!!

If JDS loses to someone like Mark Molasses Hunt, he should retire.

Brendan Schaub wants JDS, too.

You'd have to really dislike Schaub to want that fight to happen.

Maybe JDS could quickly KO Schaub during Hunt's ring walk?
