Overeem returns, fights Ben Rothwell September 5th

by Chris Palmquist |

We last saw Alistair Overeem in the Octagon in February of this year where he picked up a unanimous decision win over Frank Mir. Up next for Overeem? Ben Rothwell.

A heavyweight bout has been added to the UFC's return to Connecticut on September 5 as Alistair Overeem will face Ben Rothwell on the show taking place at the Foxwoods Casino and Resort.

UFC officials confirmed the bout to FOX Sports on Wednesday.

JDS or Big Ben... I think I'd rather fight Big Ben.

It's hard to match up JDS at this point. If JDS fights and beats Browne, do you match him up with Overeem if he beats Rothwell? If JDS beats both, will the UFC and fans be convinced that JDS can beat Cain this time? The only thing that makes it more interesting is if Werdum gets the belt, then he can rematch JDS. That could possibly set up Cain/Overeem and some other interesting match ups in the future.

Interesting match. I'm curious to see how AO is dealing with his new "diet". Ben hits hard. Looking forward to the fight.
