Overeem grateful for quick return against Struve

No sooner had Alistair Overeem lost to Ben Rothwell in early September did the speculation about his future begin.

For the third time in four outings, the Dutch heavyweight was on the wrong side of a knockout finish, leaving him with a 2-3 mark through his first five appearances in the Octagon. Though he hasn’t had the impact many anticipated following his high-profile move to the UFC and first-round destruction of Brock Lesnar at UFC 141, the organization quickly silenced any chatter about his future by making it clear they would not be releasing the former Strikeforce champion . . . . Click here for more at UFC.com
