UFC 225 just got an interesting heavyweight clash, Curtis Blaydes is set to clash with Alistair Overeem in Chicago.
Blaydes is coming off of a decision win over Mark Hunt in what is another step in the young fighters climb up the UFC rankings, Overeem, however, is coming off of a knockout loss to Francis Ngannou.
Overeem, ever since he entered the UFC has always been hanging around the top and this was still true prior to his fight with Ngannou, a win in that fight would most definitely have set up another title fight against Stipe but like Blaydes, Overeem fell to heavyweight phenom Ngannou.
