ufc 209

Heavyweights Alistair Overeem and Mark Hunt will meet again, as the two have agreed to square off at UFC 209.

Set for March 4 in Las Vegas, the bout will be a rematch of a 2008 contest won by Overeem via submission at DREAM 5.

Hunt (12-10-1) is coming off a bout with Brock Lesnar that was eventually declared a no-contest due to Lesnar failing a drug test. He is unbeaten in his last three, including wins over Frank Mir and Antonio Silva.

Overeem (50-7) had his four-fight win streak snapped by UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic in September, suffering a knockout loss.

The fight was confirmed by Hunt’s official website after media reports.
