Cain Velasquez Next Fight: Velasquez vs. Overeem Head-to-Toe Breakdown
Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Let's not kid ourselves: Alistair Overeem is going to beat Antonio "Big Foot" Silva at UFC 156 and earn a title shot against Cain Velasquez. 

Yeah, yeah, anything can happen, it's MMA, blah, blah—Silva's skill set is nothing to write home about, and I expect Overeem to find his target (how can you not hit this mug?) and end this fight early. 

After he does so, the Reem will probably challenge Velasquez in his post-fight interview, and we will have ourselves a scrap. 

I, for one, am ecstatic about this possibility, and I think this is the most intriguing bout the heavyweight division has to offer. 

Will Velasquez defend his title this time around, or will Overeem become the third heavyweight champion in as many years?
