There is a heavyweight fight rumored with this summer, and it’s a big one. According to MMAjunkie.com, former Strikeforce heavyweight winner Alistair Overeem is expected to return to the cage at UFC 164, which takes place August 31 at Bradley Center in Milwaukee, WI. And his rumored opponent is none aside from heavyweight banger Travis Browne, although this struggle is still far from official. If it does materialize, however, expect this to be the co-main event for UFC 164 because it is unquestionably one of the greatest battles of this summer. Overeem, who was shockingly knocked out by Antonio”Bigfoot” Silva at UFC 156, was set to return to actions against Junior dos Santos in UFC 160 but had to pull out because of injuries, but now healthy, he will look to get back into title contention by taking out the rising Browne, that also has a recent loss to Silva. This is a pretty even matchup but I do prefer Browne to win the battle, and I believe he can win it by knockout. However, Overeem has all of the hype and people support behind him , although he dropped to”Bigfoot,” I still expect him to start as the favorite in this struggle, perhaps in the -200 range, with the comeback on Browne becoming +150. And if that is true, then I’ll certainly be recommending a play on Browne, who’s coming off a KO win over veteran Gabriel Gonzaga. Another bet to goal with this battle will be that it does not go to decision, as either man has the capacity to knock one another out, so definitely look at making a play on this prop if it is under -300 come fight night. Lauzon vs. Johnson Booked For UFC on FOX Sports 1 1 The UFC today booked a lightweight bout between Massachusetts native Joe Lauzon and Michael Johnson to the upcoming UFC on FOX Sports 1 1 card, which takes place August 17 in Boston, MA. The fight will probably be a preliminary card bout. This is an excellent fight between two of the exciting fighters in the UFC lightweight division so kudos to UFC matchmaker Joe Silva for booking it. For Lauzon, it is a chance to redeem himself after losing to Jim Miller in a war in UFC 155, while Johnson wants to bounce back major time after suffering back-to-back beats to Myles Jury and Reza Madadi. This is an aggressive struggle if it remains standing but when it hits the floor then Lauzon, who is a BJJ ace, will have a massive advantage over Johnson, who has a very poor ground game. As such, I anticipate Lauzon to start at around -230 or with the opening comeback on Johnson being approximately +170, although things may easily change if the public decides they like Johnson to win. Personally, I think that this is a very good matchup for Lauzon therefore I would call him to triumph and that I certainly would be targeting him to get a bet this summer, in addition to targeting the Lauzon via entry prop.
