Sounds Like Alistair Overeem’s Interested in Fighting Derrick Lewis

Following Alistair Overeem’s impressive win over Sergey Pavlovich last weekend, it looks like the legendary heavyweight is down for a scrap with Derrick Lewis.

Recently the decorated fighter tweeted the comment below, which is in reference to the now famous, post-fight statement of Lewis, after he took out Alexander Volkov in October.

Could this fight happen? Here’s hoping yes.┬áMore recently, Lewis was submitted by heavyweight champ, Daniel Cormier at UFC 230 earlier this month.

Overeem is currently ranked #6 and Lewis is #2, however, that could change when the new rankings go up, following last weekend’s card in Beijing (which also saw Francis Ngannou take out Curtis Blaydes).
