Alistair Overeem vs. Frank Mir at UFC 167 on November 16th

A potentially epic face off has been set up between Alistair Overeem and former UFC champion, Frank Mir for the UFC 167 event card set for November 16th in Las Vegas, Nevada.

UFC officials confirmed the match-up Thursday night, following an initial report by the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Overeem had a shot at the UFC title not long ago but received a suspension for higher levels of testosterone. When he returned he struggled to shake off the ring rust and suffered back-to-back knockout losses to Antonio “Big Foot” Silva and Travis Browne. Mir is on a three-fight losing streak, the first of his mixed martial arts career. He was defeated by Junior dos Santos when the Brazilian was champion before being outpointed by Daniel Cormier.
