UFC 156: Keys to Victory for Alistair Overeem

Not only will UFC 156 feature a superfight between pound-for-pound great Jose Aldo and former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar, it will also mark the return of Alistair Overeem to the Octagon.

As one of the UFC's most popular fighters and biggest pay-per-view draws, Overeem's comeback will be welcomed with open arms. 

The question is, what exactly can we expect?

Overeem hasn't fought since December 2011 due to a lengthy drug suspension. In his last fight, he just so happened to finish a washed-up Brock Lesnar by kicking his already injured stomach.

UFC 156 will be Overeem's first true test in the deepest heavyweight division in the world as he steps inside the cage opposite Antonio "Big Foot" Silva. Silva is coming off a devastating knockout victory over Travis Browne and could easily prolong success if he's taken lightly.

Here are five keys to victory for "The Demolition Man" as he attempts to re-polish his title-contending image.
