Earlier this month a rumor circulated that Alistair Overeem would be making his return to action at the UFC's debut on FOX Sports 1 on August or possibly UFC 164. Today we learn that a bout with Travis Browne at the FOX Sports 1 event has been confirmed:

Alistair Overeem's return to the octagon has been shifted from UFC 164 to the promotion's debut event on FOX Sports 1.

Mutiple sources close to the event today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that Overeem (36-12 MMA, 1-1 UFC) is set to meet fellow standout heavyweight Travis Browne (14-1-1 MMA, 5-1-1 UFC) at UFC on FOX Sports 1 1, which takes place Aug. 17 at TD Garden in Boston. 

Although the fight will be part of the night's main card and a major attraction, it won't even be the main event, UFC President Dana White subsequently told MMAjunkie.com. That assures at least one other significant bout will be added to the card.

The fact that it won't be the main event gives me hope Dana wasn't bullshitting us when he said it would be a huge card

Man I don't think AO is going to win this one. Huge fan but Browne is tough and has been getting better with each fight. I hope the Reem pulls it off but I don't think he will. Phone Post

Awesome.

Title says Aug 16th, its Aug 17th.

Main event has got to be either Jones/Gus if Jones is healthy or Bendo vs Maynard/Grant.

I guess this means Massachusetts State Athletic Commission has no problem giving Alistair a TUE despite his positive drug test?

I don't understand how a guy looses one time and all of a sudden he's done with!?

Overeem had an off night against Bigfoot and that doesn't change the fact that he's wrecked everyone's he's faced at HW.

I expect this to be overeems way back into title contention! Phone Post 3.0

Great card. If Matt Brown disposes of Alves, the UFC better give him a top 10 or 5 opponent. Phone Post 3.0

Welcome to the UG, you are as good as your last fight.

Reem came in not giving a fuck at all about Bigfoot and was coasting to a 30-27 decision before he got clobbered.

He'll beat Browne in what should be a great fight. Phone Post
