Junior dos Santos won’t have to wait for Alistair Overeem to get healthy before he fights again.
The soap opera was short-lived, but it appears to have a good ending right now. Heavyweight Mark Hunt will meet former champion Junior dos Santos in May at UFC 160.
For the second time, a fight between Junior dos Santos and Alistair Overeem will not happen on schedule.
Mark Hunt had an opportunity to replace injured Alistair Overeem and fight Junior dos Santos but turned it down, according to UFC President Dana White.
Alistair Overeem has suffered an injury and will be unable to compete against Junior dos Santos at UFC 160.
Once again, Alistair Overeem and Junior dos Santos will not be able to fulfill a planned meeting in the octagon.
