Overeem targeted for return at UFC 164

Love him or hate him. Reem fights are mostly great fights and kos, win or lose. Would be a loss if he left.. Both financially for the ufc and entertainment for the fans

no longer interested in the Reem personally.He showed he is too cocky and cares too much for beach muscle to be a serious UFC contender

Damn, I bet it would be tough for him without juice mentally, especially assuming he was clean for the Bigfoot fight, and I believe he was because of the scrutiny and testing. Getting beat clean would have to get him mentally somewhat, I think.

Is this enough time for Reem to get his levels sorted out?

"Top-tier heavyweight Alistair Overeem's" ????????? Did I miss something? When did Overeem EVER prove to be "top-tier" in the HW division of MMA? Without a titanic dose of performance enhancing drugs, the guy is a solid B-level LHW. Not an insult either. I followed his entire career from the time he was bear-mauled by Hoffman. His best win is a shit dec over Werdum when Werdum was the lineal HW champ. BF/Cain unifies every major HW title in MMA history with the current UFC title and likely will stay that way for the forseeable future.
