Alistair Overeem UFC Strikeforce

Sure middleweights Gegard Mousasi and Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza are headlining Friday’s show in Foxwoods, but perhaps the biggest story entering this weekend’s fights is that heavyweight Alistair Overeem (pictured) isn’t nearly as Ubereem as he once was.

Overeem’s new leaned out look has been on display on his Twitter feed, but it’s clear in Monday’s episode of “Countdown to UFC Fight Night: Jacare vs. Mousasi” that the 34-year-old is looking to be more agile at this stage of his controversial career.

It will be interesting to see what Overeem tips the scale at for Thursday’s weigh-ins.

Overeem battles Ben Rothwell in the show’s co-main event.

Foxwoods Resort Casino in Ledyard, Connecticut serves as host.
