An eleven-fight win streak, including wins over Fabricio Werdum and Brock Lesnar in his UFC debut put Alistair Overeem in title contention with a win at UFC 156. Unfortunately for him, he came in with an arrogant attitude and it cost him against Antonio Silva, suffering a third round knockout loss.
One of the UFC’s most promising heavyweight prospects returned to winning form, when Travis Browne stopped Gabriel Gonzaga via first round knockout at the Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale. Previously, Browne suffered his first career loss to Antonio Silva after a leg injury hobbled him in the first round, and Silva eventually earned the TKO victory.
