MMA Talking Heads: UFC 145 'Jones vs Evans' picks, Alistair Overeem's positive test and more

In this episode of MMA Talking Heads, Jason Probst and Ian Parker breakdown Alistair Overeem's positive test leading into the all-heavyweight UFC 146 card, and offer up possible substitute opponents. Ian also explores the feasibility of Overeem's exploiting a legal loophole in his appeal to the Nevada State Athletic Commission to keep his May 26, 2012, date with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight Champion Junior Dos Santos.

The boys also look back at last Saturday's (April 14, 2012) UFC on FUEL 2 card in Sweden, as well as provide quick picks for this weekend's UFC 145: "Jones vs. Evans" mixed martial arts (MMA) event in Atlanta, Georgia. They both like Jon Jones to defeat Rashad Evans, but for markedly different reasons.
