    Any news on his future? his contract with the UFC expired and I wonder i there is any news on resigning him or that he has hinted at signing somwhere else

    he was back on track and it would be bad for him if this takes too long. he usually is a very active fighter

    He's a veteran, time away from action shouldn't affect him much imo, plus gives more time for Greg Jackson to continue working on his craft.


    He's probably holding out a bit to up the bidding war between Bellator and the UFC.

    He's negotiating, that's what's up. Overeem isn't Sterling, he's big business and a lot of money is on the line, dese tings take time.

    It's a strange one for me. I absolutely love about half the movie and can't stand about half of it.

    You're getting confused here.
    It wasn't Julia Roberts, it's a Frank Stallone film.
    Some of his finest work.....

    Squeezing as much show money out of DW's pockets as possible and guaranteeing his next fight is for the title

    yea, you'll know what happens based on what you hear the ufc say -

    if they sign him (assuming for a few fights) - dana: ALISTAIR OVEREEM IS A CHAMPION, HE JUST KO'D JUNIOR DOS SANTOS AND IS CLEARLY NEXT IN LINE FOR A TITLE SHOT, YOU WOULD BE STUPID TO THINK ANYTHING ELSE

    if they dont - OVEREEM JUST WASNT CUTTING IT IN THE UFC - HE BEAT A REALLY AGING JUNIOR DOS SANTOS, BUT HE ALSO LOST TO XXXXXXX AND XXXX AND XXXXX - WE ARE LOOKING FOR GUYS WHO TREND UPWARD NOT DOWNWARD

    really, it just all comes down to negotiating - overeem seems good at knowing his value and fighting for it, good for him

    Well if he lets it go long enough. He wont be tested for out of comp testing considering he doesnt have a contract. He than can juice to the gills during that time period. Then go 4 months clean get some gains and be tested when he signs a new contract. Ubereem 2.0

    Saw these posts on Overeem's instagram page a few days ago..

    Seems like his knows who his next fight is and implying it's for a UFC title ..

    Thoughts ?
