Alistair Overeem vs. Travis Browne: Head-to-Toe Breakdown
Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Former Strikeforce heavyweight champ Alistair Overeem will take on Travis Browne at the inaugural UFC on FOX Sports 1 event set for August 17. 

Both Overeem and Browne currently find themselves in the upper echelon of the heavyweight division, according to the UFC's official fighter rankings.

Overeem has had a pretty rough 2013. He is coming off a devastating knockout loss to Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva and suffered an injury that forced him out of a bout with Junior dos Santos at UFC 160.

Browne's last loss, the first of his career, also came at the hands of "Bigfoot." He tore his left hamstring during the fight. After rehabbing, Browne returned to the Octagon at The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale, where he knocked out Gabriel Gonzaga in the first round.    

It's hard to believe, but in the relatively barren landscape that is the heavyweight division, a victory for either fighter will thrust their name into the title picture.

Here is a head-to-toe breakdown of this clash between two of the very best 265s.
