The past few months have been rather tumultuous for former Strikeforce heavyweight champion and hopeful UFC heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem.
Overeem was scheduled to fight current UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos for a shot at the title, when a random drug test found his testosterone to epitestosterone ratio to be 14-1 and the legal ratio limit is 6-1. Overeem was then suspended for nine months by the NSAC and was replaced by Frank Mir in his bout against JDS.
Now, the heavyweight has taken to his Twitter and stated that he will be back to fight in December and is looking to take the belt with him.
I'll be fighting again in December and mark my words, I'll be back.. to get the belt, sooner rather later.
