Now riding an impressive four fight win streak that includes names such as Roy Nelson, Stefan Struve, Junior dos Santos, and now fellow teammate Andrei Arlovski, Alistair Overeem looks to get his long-awaited shot at the UFC heavyweight title.

After finishing Arlovski with a Karate Kid-esque jumping front kick followed up by a slew of punches, Overeem expressed his interest in taking on the winner of Fabricio Werdum and Stipe Miocic for the heavyweight title. The Dutchman also let his hometown know he plans on defending the title on hometown soil as soon as next year.

Werdum vs Miocic takes place this upcoming Saturday (May 14, 2016) in the main event of UFC 198 in Brazil, and you can bet ‘The Reem’ will be paying very close attention.
