Alistair Overeem is currently serving a suspension after failing a drug test in March, but when he returns he doesnâ€™t want any warm-up fights.
He had been due to get a shot at the heavyweight title prior to his suspension being implemented and when it expires - on December 27 - he is looking to go right back in at the top.
â€śThis time off is perfect. After this, I have a full four years of dedication [to fighting],â€ť he says to MMA Weekly.
â€śFor me it doesn't matter when I fight. I don't need to have a warm-up fight. I'm gonna leave that up to the gentlemen of the UFC to decide. If they want me to go for the title, I'm ready for that.â€ť
â€śI'm gonna lay low and fight whoever they put in front of me. I'm gonna get my hands on [Dos Santos] and when I do, he's all mine.â€ť
