Answer: What Alistair Overeem (pictured) did after getting knocked out by Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva on the heels of his nine-month testosterone suspension. Question: What is soul-searching? If this were a game of “Jeopardy,” that scenario perfectly describes what Overeem’s life has been since February’s upset loss to Silva. With a shot at UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez within his grasp, and Overeem in complete control of the bout, Silva came storming back in the third and final round with haymakers that laid Overeem unconscious on the canvas. So what exactly happened at UFC 156? “What happen was he knocked me out cold,” Overeem admitted on FUEL TV’s “UFC Tonight.” “I think there was a little bit of an under-estimation. He’s a dangerous guy. He has heavy bones. That was a costly price to pay. “In the meantime I’ve learned all the lessons I could have. I took some time off to over-think everything that wasn’t right. In my own way I’ve been fixing everything. I’ve been in camp for four months and I feel great. I look forward to fighting again in [11] days.” Despite the devastating setback, Overeem is still focused the brass ring – make that a gold buckle. “My goal is the UFC belt,” Overeem stated. “That would crown my career. So I’m just going to give it all I have.” Overeem looks to right the ship against Travis Browne next Saturday at “UFC Fight Night: Shogun vs. Sonnen.” The heavyweight shootout co-headlines the Fox Sports 1 broadcast.
