“Right now, he’s not even licensed, so the UFC’s hands are tied. The UFC can’t book him a fight until he gets licensed. So right now it’s all talk,” said Overeem’s manager Glenn Robinson of Authentic Sports Management when speaking to MMAWeekly.com.

Assuming Overeem is able to get a fight license in Nevada as soon as the Dec. 27 date passes, there’s still no guarantee he would get to compete for the belt right away. UFC 155 still has to happen, and dos Santos and Velasquez have to face off one more time.

There are no guarantees that either fighter will come away without a scratch that would likely push back another title bout further into 2013.

“Based upon when he gets licensed and it also depends on if the winner of dos Santos and Cain fight comes out unscathed. What if the winner comes out and has an injury and doesn’t want to fight for eight months? So there’s a lot of ‘what ifs,’ so right now we’re just focusing on getting licensed, and once we get licensed then we’ll figure out who we’re going to fight,” Robinson stated.

Very True but hows about a slight change in order.

How about he pisses clean first then fights ?

After he get licensed and he does not want to wait a fight against Cormier makes sense. But he should just wait for the title-shot I guess. April/may 2013 will be the date of his title-shot. If you have already waited for a year a couple of extra months of waiting would n't be a problem I think.

Cormier vs Overeem for #1 contender

Makes sense for both of them and Cormier deserves a contender fight IMO. Phone Post

flipmode - overeem v kongo
ultimate scary looking black dudes

Yes, the sheer insanity of physiques alone would shatter many a man's tellybox.

Maybe they could do a Rick Rude/Ultimate Warrior flex-off at the weigh-in, and then fight as per schedule.
