Speaking with MMAweekly.com yesterday, UFC president, Dana White confirmed what many fans already suspected: the winner of the upcoming November 12th collision between champion Cain Velasquez and rugged challenger Junior dos Santos will defend the throne against the victor of the forthcoming Alistair Overeem/Brock Lesnar duel, which is slated for December 30th.
White seems excited by the Overeem acquisition, and openly admits heâ€™s uncertain of exactly where the former Strikeforce heavyweight champion stands amongst the UFC ranks.
â€œIâ€™m excited to see what Alistair Overeem has,â€ states White. â€œAnd people can yap and say whatever they want, when these guys come over to the UFC, itâ€™s a whole other ballgame. Itâ€™s going to be a really good gauge to find out where Alistair really sits in the heavyweight division.â€
Thus far only two bouts have been made official for the yet-to-be-titled event: Lesnar versus Overeem, and Jon Fitch versus Johny Hendricks.
