Dana White Says Alistair Overeem is Hiding From JDS

One of the big fights to make at Heavyweight is Alistair Overeem vs. Junior Dos Santos and apparently Alistair Overeem isn’t down for it right now. According to Dana White on UFC Tonight The Reem turned down a 5-round scuffle with JDS in Brazil and a 3-round co-main in Las Vegas. According to Dana White, Alistair Overeem is “hiding” from Junior Dos Santos.

If I’m Alistair Overeem I’m trying to build my career back up and ride some momentum off of the back of a Frank Mir victory. He might not be ready for the #2 guy in the division at the moment, so it’s hard to blame him.

“Reem was offered a 5 round main event in Brazil and said no, also a 3-round co-main in Vegas. Turned it down. He’s hiding from JDS.” – Dana
