Alistair Overeem returns from a year-long suspension handed out by the Nevada State Athletic Commission after he tested well above the regulated testosterone levels prior to his UFC 146 bout with Junior dos Santos. The former DREAM and Strikeforce heavyweight champion earned a shot at UFC gold on the heels of a eleven-fight win streak, most notably a first round TKO victory over Brock Lesnar at UFC 141.
Antonio Silva snapped a two-fight losing streak when he defeated Travis Browne at UFC on FX 5 with a first round TKO victory. Silva was eliminated from the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix in the semifinals by current Strikeforce champion, Daniel Cormier via first round knockout.
