MMA heavyweights strive to gain back lost relevancy in their division.
Heavyweight superstars Alistair Overeem and Frank Mir will look to get back on track when they face each other in a pivotal bout on November 16th’s UFC 167 card at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
A former Strikeforce, Dream, and K-1 World Grand Prix champion, Overeem owns wins over Brock Lesnarand Fabricio Werdum, but recent defeats to Antonio Silva and Travis Browne have him seeking redemption in Las Vegas.
