There is a heavyweight fight rumored for this summer, and it is a big one. According to, former Strikeforce heavyweight winner Alistair Overeem is expected to come back to the cage at UFC 164, which takes place August 31 at Bradley Center in Milwaukee, WI. And his rumored opponent is none aside from heavyweight banger Travis Browne, though this fight is still far from official. Should it materialize, though, expect this to be the co-main occasion for UFC 164 because it is unquestionably among the biggest fights of the summertime. Overeem, who was shockingly knocked out by Antonio”Bigfoot” Silva in UFC 156, was set to return to actions against Junior dos Santos at UFC 160 but had to pull out because of injuries, but healthy, he’ll seem to get back into title contention by taking out the climbing Browne, who also has a recent loss to Silva. This is a pretty even matchup but I do favor Browne to win the fight, and I think he can acquire it . But, Overeem has all the hype and people support behind him and, although he lost to”Bigfoot,” I expect him to open as the favorite in this fight, perhaps in the -200 range, with all the comeback on Browne becoming +150. And if that is the case, then I’ll definitely be recommending a play on Browne, who’s coming off a KO win over veteran Gabriel Gonzaga. Another bet to goal for this battle will be that it does not go to decision, as man has the capacity to knock one another out, so definitely look at making a play on this prop if it is under -300 come fight night. Lauzon vs. Johnson Booked For UFC on FOX Sports 1 The UFC now booked a lightweight bout between Massachusetts native Joe Lauzon and Michael Johnson for the upcoming UFC on FOX Sports 1 card, which takes place August 17 at Boston, MA. The fight will likely be a preliminary card bout. This is an excellent battle between 2 of the exciting fighters in the UFC lightweight division so kudos to UFC matchmaker Joe Silva for reserving it. For Lauzon, it is an opportunity to redeem himself after losing to Jim Miller at a war at UFC 155, while Johnson wants to bounce back big time after enduring back-to-back defeats to Myles Jury and Reza Madadi. This is an aggressive fight if it stays standing but if it strikes the floor then Lauzon, who’s a BJJ ace, will have a huge edge over Johnson, who has a very inadequate ground game. As such, I anticipate Lauzon to open at around -230 or with the launching comeback on Johnson being approximately +170, although things may easily change if the public decides they prefer Johnson to win. Personally, I think that this is a really great matchup for Lauzon so I would call him to triumph and that I definitely would be targeting him for a wager this summer, in addition to targeting the Lauzon via submission prop.
