As far as Alistair Overeem is concerned, he's going to fight soon after his current suspension ends.

The UFC heavyweight took to Twitter on Monday and promised fans he'll be in the cage before year's end.

"I'll be fighting again in December, and mark my words, I'll be back to get the belt sooner rather (than) later," he stated.

Overeem (36-11 MMA, 1-0 UFC), a former Strikeforce champion, most recently scored a TKO victory over Brock Lesnar in December at UFC 141. But prior to a scheduled May title fight with heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos at UFC 146, he failed a surprise pre-fight drug test.

It will be interesting to see where the UFC see's him being upon his return (given he is still under the UFC banner by then). Will he be able to reclaim his #1 contender spot right away, or have to build it back up.

If they haven't released him by now their not gonna. I don't see them giving him a title shot his 1st fight back, maybe 1-2 fights till that happens

Lorenzo Fertitta said he won't book Overeem until he has a license.

"That's speculation," Fertitta said in a text to ESPN.com. "It's in the NSAC's hands. (The UFC) can't be presumptuous."

Overeem isn't eligible to apply for a license until Dec. 27, and the card is expected to be on Dec. 29.
