Former Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem and Antonio Silva are on tap to face each other at UFC 156: Aldo Vs. Edgar, according to a report by the Las Vegas Review-Journal. The card goes down February 2 from Las Vegas.

Overeem is currently suspended, but is set to appear in front of the Nevada Athletic Commission on December 27. He has not fought since defeated Brock Lesnar last year.

Silva is coming off a victory over Travis Browne that followed a loss to Cain Velasquez in his UFC debut.

Overeem would likely move into a title shot with a victory over "Bigfoot."

That's why I like this match up so much

This is a good fight for Overeem. An impressive win here will likely set up a big title fight with either JDS or Cain sometime next Summer.

I wanna see JDS vs. Reem. I normally hate seeing two fighters I like fight, but I think this matchup would be amazing so I hope Overeem beats Bigfoot and JDS beats Cain

I've certainly been wrong before, but I'll take Ubes in either location. I see him destroying bigfeets.
