During the UFC 155 main event bout between Junior dos Santos and Cain Velasquez, heavyweight star, Alistair Overeem was intently watching the fight. The Dutch fighter, who could possibly earn the next shot at the belt, went to twitter and took a slight dig at JDS as he was losing the bout:

After making a slight joke about Dos Santos, Alistair did give them both props though on his following tweets, saying it was a "great fight" and a "great performance by Cain."

Overeem is currently scheduled to face Antonio Silva at UFC 156 on Super Bowl weekend, a card headlined by the super-fight between Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar. If he earns a quality victory over 'Bigfoot', he can very well be next in line against the re-crowned champion in Cain Velasquez.
