    Overeem-Stipe makes sense once he beats Fabio

    The reem must have a good manager to make requests like that.

    JDS is the only fight I'd like to see him in at the moment.

    Jds is injured so if they would book that it wil just be a other fluke !!

    Overeem fighting in japan sounds pretty damn good no excuses for him to lose there
    he has bin fighter over there for all of his life ..

    A match up vs hunto or Barnet or maybe even a rematch against Bigfoot (if he is not still suspended for steriods ) or maybe even stipe a rematch agains brown is probally
    of the table since their at the same gym now

    If JDS is healthy in time, make that fight. How long does it take to recover from a broken hand? As long as he's healthy by the end of July, he should have plenty of time to prep and be ready to crush Overeem.

    Don't think it will happen.
    He is too expensive for Fight Pass card.

    that's what I'm thinking as well. He'll probably fight on the September Toronto card.

    Well I heard Lorenzo basically agreed to let him fight in Japan. If I am correct Overeem's expensive contract is a bit downgraded now. By not putting him on a PPV card Zuffa will cut costs because Overeem always got a percentage of the PPV-revenues. I am not sure if that's still the case. According to my info his contract got renewed/extended but with different terms.

    Stipe and Hunt are already scheduled so most logical would be Barnett.
