Free agents Alistair Overeem and Aljamain Sterling made Monday a good day for the UFC, announcing that they have agreed to new contracts with the promotion.

Overeem, a former Strikeforce heavyweight champion, confirmed his decision on Twitter. He improved to 40-14 overall and 5-3 inside the Octagon with a December victory over Junior dos Santos.

Overeem also stated on social media that he will be fighting next in the Netherlands, headlining the upcoming UFC card from Rotterdam.

Sterling, meanwhile, appeared on The MMA Hour to declare his announcement. The bantamweight prospect did say that the World Series of Fighting pushed hard to acquire his services.

The news comes on the heels of Benson Henderson’s decision to leave the UFC and sign with Bellator MMA.
