UFC Fight Night: Shogun Vs Sonnen takes place this Saturday night, and in the co main event Heavyweights Alistair Overeem and Travis Browne will slug it out to see who takes a step up the heavyweight ladder. Many fans and pundits thought it was a forgone conclusion that Overeem would end up champion, but after some bad choices and a loss to Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva, he now aims to right the ship and get back on track. With only one loss in his career as a professional, also to Bigfoot, Browne stands to stake his claim in the top ten with a win over Overeem. The UFC has released a short video previewing the fight.
