UFC targeting JDS/Reem for summer

by Dann Stupp | source: mmajunkie.com

While on Tuesday's debut episode of "UFC Today" on FUEL TV, UFC president Dana White said he's tentatively scheduling a bout between heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos (14-1 MMA, 8-0 UFC) and recent UFC 141 winner Alistair Overeem (36-11 MMA, 1-0 UFC) for the summer.

However, no specific date has been determined.

"Hopefully this summer," White said when asked about the heavyweight tilt. "This summer is probably when it's going to go down.

"Alistair wants to take some time off. Dos Santos is ready but needs to get some training in. So hopefully, this summer."

 I think it will happen before summer. Andy, Edgar/Bendo, Cruz/Faber, Aldo/Mendes and the Diaz/Condit winner are all going to return in summer. I think Zuffa pushes for this to happen in April or May. With Jones vs Hendo/Rashad happening in the whatever month this doesn't happen in. Btw Reem doesn't need to deal with golden glory. That's what lawyers are for.

To be fair, Alistair has a lot of shit on his plate to deal with legally...I'd like to have all of my ducks in a row before going into the biggest fight of my career, too.
