Is “One More Title Run” Really Possible?
Alistair Overeem has always been a force to be reckoned with. For which ask former UFC champions Andrei Arlovski, Junior dos Santos, Frank Mir and Brock Lesnar, since they might have a better answer. While there is no doubt that the Dutch man is a standout performer, there is an alternate reality as well. Which carries ominous threats in the form of other heavyweights like Francis Ngannou, Curtis Blaydes, Jairzinho Rozenstruik, Daniel Cormier, and the current UFC Heavyweight Champion Stipe Miocic. The fact that four out these five, except Cormier with whom he never fought, have beaten him before. Gives a grim picture of the competition.
So, whether a title run is possible or not, only time will tell. Meanwhile, the fans will definitely get excited, and would want to see Alistair Overeem in a title match.
