Junior Dos Santos may have a bigger bone to pick with Alistair Overeem than with Cain Velasquez, but that will have to wait. |
Dos Santos, the UFC's heavyweight champion, is expected to next defend his title Dec. 29 at the promotion's year-end pay-per-view in Las Vegas. UFC President Dana White late Saturday confirmed the planned matchup following the post-event news conference for UFC 150 in Denver.
While the UFC's traditional year-end show has not yet been announced, the heavyweight title tilt will headline what is likely to be UFC 155 at either the MGM Grand Garden Arena or Mandalay Bay Events Center.
Dos Santos (15-1 MMA, 9-0 UFC) was scheduled to face Overeem (36-11 MMA, 1-0 UFC) this past May, but Overeem tested for elevated testosterone-to-epitestosterone levels and was essentially suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for nine months. At UFC 146, Dos Santos defended his title against Frank Mir, while Velasquez (10-1 MMA, 8-1 UFC) beat Antonio Silva to become the top contender with Overeem unavailable at least until the end of 2012.
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
