Breaking: Alistair Overeem Injured, Out Of UFC 160 Bout With Junior Dos Santos

MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani is reporting that former Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem has suffered a training injury and will not be able to face Junior dos Santos in May.

The bout was expected to be the co-main event for UFC 160: Velasquez vs. Silva II from Las Vegas.

Overeem apparently will be out four-to-five weeks, but the nature of the injury was not disclosed.

It remains to be seen if dos Santos, a former UFC heavyweight champion, will remain on the card with a new opponent.
