Alistair Overeem vs. Curtis Blaydes set for UFC 225 in Chicago

Heavyweight Clash

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.
