Alistair Overeem Looking At UFC 164 In August For His Return

It’s been a trying period of two-plus years for Alistair Overeem, as the former Strikeforce heavyweight champion has fought just twice since joining the UFC.

Now, after battling a series of injuries, Overeem appears set to return to action this August, according to
