So Reem will be in the UFC very soon, great news. He could be Brock's comeback fight, that would SELL.

That would sell one fight very well,
but i'm pretty sure Brock would retire after being raped again and i bet the UFC doesn't want that.

I expect "Alistair Overeem signs with the UFC" to headline MMAfighting's website tomorrow afternoon.
My first post here. Hope the mmaforum is better than sherdog, I'm a defectee.

Anyway, I certainly hope Overeem goes to the UFC... but wouldn't count on it. Dana has really ****ed things up by his feuds with many legends of the sport. Big John, frank & Ken Shamrock, Pat Milletich and the list goes on and on. I really would love to see an opposition (Bellator, Dream?) pick up all the UFC refugees to become a legitimate opposition.

DAMN I miss Pride days!!!

Brock isn't very active anyway, and anyone who can throw a combination can beat him. Do Lesnar vs Reem, sell massive, if Brock wins then great he can do another big headliner, if he loses then Reem will be the UFC's new super-human cash magnet and Brock would probably dissapear.

Lesnar has lost stock in his last two performances, UFC won't risk giving him lower ranked build-up fights that he could lose, if that happened then he'd never be a headliner again.

Good first post, welcome

I too miss the PRIDE days.

First fight back, Brock and Overeem... now that would be fireworks. As it stands, who knows where the Reem is headed.

Really? Brock is better then Silva at BJJ? The only thing Brock has going for him is his wrestling and that won't work against Fedor who will expect it in the FIRST Round.Silva took Fedor down because Fedor was expecting a stand up war after all the Taunts Silva did in the First Round.

He backed out of the GP because it was half a month earlier and then immediately signed to fight for another promotion. I'd cut his ass if he did that shit too. He's running around like he owns that promotion and basically walking all over his bosses because he knows he's the best fighter they have. Zuffa doesn't put up with that shit so I'm willing it's them who pressured for the release. They're probably going to tell him, "Look, we're going to give you a shit load of money and exposure. You can sign with us or you can go fight for some low level promotion because Strike Force isn't an option now." And then offer him a much more strict contract than the one he has with SF. I don't blame them either. When he's procured so many injuries and backed out of so much stuff for Strike Force how can you NOT make an argument for him not being able to fight outside the organization?

The timing seems all too fishy. With such a big marquee name I think they would have a BLOCKBUSTER of a fight with

Overeem SF/Dream/K-1 Champ vs UFC champ.

ABSOLUTE unification bout.
