Latest UFC Fight Night 87 fight card, rumors for 'Overeem vs Arlovski' on May 8 in Rotterdam

If Alistair Overeem wants a UFC title shot, he's going to have to first get past a heavyweight who knows a thing or two about wearing the division strap. Similarly, Andrei Arlovski can get himself back into the title hunt by detonating the chin of "Demolition Man" on what is shaping up to be a stellar FOX Sports 1 offering in the Netherlands. Speaking of which, hometown hero Stefan Struve will see co-headlining action in a 265-pound slugfest opposite Antonio Silva. Don't blink!
