Alistair Overeem is targeting August and UFC 164 for his return to the Octagon. Multiple sources confirmed the news with MMAjunkie.com recently.
Overeem (36-12) was defeated earlier this year by Antonio Silva in a No. 1 contender match. He was scheduled to face Junior dos Santos later this month, but an injury forced the cancellation of the bout.
The former Strikeforce heavyweight champion has fought just twice inside the Octagon, defeating Brock Lesnar in his debut in late 2011.
