Alistair Overeem Injured will not Meet Junior dos Santos at UFC 160

That’s the buzz on the web today.  Alistair Overeem apparently sustained an injury during training that is yet to be disclosed, according to an article on MMAFighting.

This marks the second cancellation of a match between these two heavyweights.  The first, which was scheduled back in May at UFC 146, Overeem was not cleared by the Nevada State Athletic Commision after failing to clear a pre-fight drug screen.

The UFC has made no word yet as to who will replace Overeem or whether JDS will remain on the card.  This is bad news for mma fans who were excited to see this heavyweight bout with major contension implications.
