UFC Announces Alistair Overeem – Curtis Blaydes Bout
By FCF Staff
The bout will be part of UFC 225, which will take place in Chicago, Illinois on June 9th. The confirmation follows a previous report from Tom Taylor.
Blaydes (9-1) faced Hunt at UFC 221, and worked his way to a decision win over the feared striker. The only fighter to defeat Blaydes to date is Francis Ngannou.
Overeem (43-16) is coming off a vicious, knockout loss at the hands of Ngannou. That bout took place in December at UFC 218. Prior to that, the decorated heavyweight earned a decision win over Fabricio Werdum, at UFC 213 last July.
