Fans will have to wait a little longer to see Alistair Overeem vs. Junior dos Santos.

According to sources close to Overeem, the heavyweight recently suffered an undisclosed injury while training, which will sideline him for four-to-five weeks. As a result, Overeem's camp recently informed the UFC that he will be unable to fight dos Santos at UFC 160 on May 25.

I'm a bit disappointed about this one. But instead of looking for a replacement, rescheduling this match a few events down the road might be the best move.

Hunt for president 2013.

In the words of Overeem - Hes injured because hes scared.

I can actually see a reasonable argument for giving the fight to Hunt, but I doubt he is popular enough to make the fight produce much money.

Although, I don't see too many obvious choices besides Hunt.

Nooooo!! Fight of the year contender gone! Please let this not be a repeat of last year where nearly every big fight got cancelled.

On the other hand...

JDS vs. Hunt = new fight of the year contender! Yay! Bring it on!
