Overeem turns down fight with Dos Santos


Coming off a win over Frank Mir at UFC 169, Alistair Overeem will likely find himself in a bout with title implications. However, according to Dana White, it won't be against former champion Junior Dos Santos.

On the most recent episode of UFC Tonight, Dana White said that he offered Overeem a five round main event fight with dos Santos, which the Dutchman declines. White also offered Overeem a three round co-main event against Dos Santos, which he also turned down.

White believes that Overeem is running from Dos Santos.

"He wants nothing to do with dos Santos," said White. "He's literally hiding from him"

They're both probably playing hardball due to his contract being up

He's figuratively hiding Dana, not literally. If he were literally hiding he would be climbing into wardrobes and wheely bins backstage at UFC shows everytime JDS walked by.
