Alistair Overeem officially applies for fighter's license in state of NevadaPosted on April 9, 2012, 08:26 AM by Anton Gurevich
According to report on MMAMania.com, current #1 contender for the UFC Heavyweight title, Alistair Overeem, has officially applied for a fighter's license in Nevada. This means Overeem will appear before the Nevada State Athletic Commission on April 24th, trying to explain his failed drug test at last month's UFC 146 pre-fight press conference.
In light of Dana White's recent statements about still having Cain Velasquez vs. Frank Mir on the card, it seems like the UFC have their "Plan B" ready, if NSAC decides to reject Alistair Overeem's application. Fabricio Werdum and Mark Hunt are the main contenders for a shot at Junior dos Santos' belt, with fans still rooting on Twitter (#RallyForMarkHunt) for the thirty-eight year old Super Samoan.
UFC color commentator Joe Rogan recently shared his thoughts about the possibility of JDS vs. Mark Hunt title fight at UFC 146, claiming that stylistically Hunt could be the most exciting match-up for the Brazilian.
Mark Hunt is one of the most decorated strikers currently competing in Mixed Martial Arts. The New Zealander holds a professional kickboxing record of 30 victories and 13 losses, with 13 KO/TKO finishes. Hunt has victories over legendary fighters such as Jerome Le Banner, Stefan Leko, Francisco Filho, and Peter Graham, with K-1 2001 WGP Championship as his biggest accomplishment.
