Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Alistair Overeem vs. Travis Browne Booked for ‘UFC on FOX Sports 1 1′ Non-Headliner

MMAJunkie breaks the news that Alistair Overeem will make his Octagon return at UFC on FOX Sports 1 1 — which takes place August 17th in Boston — where he’ll face dangerous heavyweight Travis Browne. (Sorry, Milwaukee-area Reem-fans. You’ve been duped.) According to the Junkie, the Overeem vs. Browne match will not be the show’s main event, which gives some credence to Dana White’s bold claim that UFC on FOX Sports 1 1 will be “the best television card we’ve ever done.”

Overeem and Browne have some shared history, in that they were both flattened in recent fights against Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, despite coming in as heavy favorites against the Brazilian future champion. Since then, Browne has rebounded with a quick-knockout of Gabriel Gonzaga at the TUF 17 Finale — aided by some controversial elbows — while Overeem has been inactive due to injury.

A year ago, I would have predicted “Reem by murder.” But now…I’m not so sure. Who would you put your money on for this one?

Have I mentioned how pumped I am that I will be at this card? Have I? I said fucking have I? And they haven't even announced the main event! FUCK YEAH! Suck it Milwaukee! I don't care if it is an Indian name pronounced mill-e-wah-que which means the good land, it can still suck it. Sorry I may be getting a little too amped up.

Reem's success at heavyweight was mostly due to the steroids, but partly due to the aura of invincibility he developed crushing cans. Both of those things are gone now. I doubt he goes .500 in the UFC from here on out.

Browne's got a good chance against the Reem. His loss to Silva was a total fluke and normally he is very quick with dynamic striking. I've never been that high on the Reem's supply personally and I feel that his loss to Silva came from personal fault and exposed a gaping hole in his... vag. If Browne keeps it moving and stays at range he's got a good chance of wearing Reemer down and KOing him.

Playing hide the horse meat is big in Europe. You never know where it will turn up.

To anyone else who plans on going: I'll be the guy wearing the CP HOF shirt trying to fight his way into press row whilst doublefisting Molsons. Feel free to jump in and assist the security guard; I won't take it personally.

Can't wait to watch Browne prance around like a pretty little pony again.
