Alistair Overeem had a meeting today with the Nevada State Athletic Commision and was granted permission to fight again. Overeem’s next scheduled opponent is set to be Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva at UFC 156 in February.
“Today I went for my license,” Overeem told MMAjunkie ”I’m very happy to inform you guys that I got licensed to fight Feb. 2 in the UFC against ‘Bigfoot’ Silva. For me, it’s now back to work, back to entering the gym. I’m already basically in shape, so it’s just a couple more weeks of grinding it, and then it’s going to be showtime again.”
