Frank Mir Vs. Alistair Overeem Added To UFC 167

frank-mir-new-one


UFC 167 just got a whole lot bigger as heavyweights Frank Mir and Alistair Overeem have been penciled in to face each other in Las Vegas on November 16th.

The UFC made the announcement yesterday despite discussion that both fighters could end up on the unemployment line due to recent losses. That doesn’t appear to be the case and instead the two could end up fighting for a job.

The heavyweight tilt joins a UFC Welterweight title defense as Georges St. Pierre faces Johny Hendricks. Rashad Evans will also be fighting Chael Sonnen on the card.

The updated event card to date looks as follows:

Georges St-Pierre vs. Johny Hendricks – for welterweight title
Rashad Evans vs. Chael Sonnen
Frank Mir vs. Alistair Overeem
Robbie Lawler vs. Rory MacDonald
Josh Koscheck vs. Tyron Woodley

    It’s a test to make sure overeem isn’t too cocky and to see if frank Mir still has his great ground game…if Mir can pull off a good strategy this fight then maybe he’s looking at the end of his career around the corner

    Mir will never get cut from the UFC,he’s been there since the beginning so that’s one of Dana’s boys,Overeem on the other hand…….

    I hope Frank Mir stays because I still like him. He has been around for a long time in the UFC. He has been having the case of bad luck as of late. Josh Koscheck could also loose his job as well if he looses. He has three straight looses as well.
