Junior dos Santos vs. Alistair Overeem Title Bout Targeted for Summer 2012

UFC President, Dana White has revealed the UFC plan to hold the heavyweight title bout between champion, Junior dos Santos and number one contender, Alistair Overeem over the summer months.

Dana White, speaking via MMAJunkie, said:

“Hopefully this summer. This summer is probably when it’s going to go down. Alistair wants to take some time off. Dos Santos is ready but needs to get some training in. So hopefully, this summer. This is one of those fights where no matter where this ends up, it’ll be exciting. But I see this fight standing up and finding out who hits the hardest and who has the best chin.”
