Alistair Overeem and Travis Browne will square off in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night 26, which will air live tonight on the brand new Fox Sports 1 network at Boston's TD Garden.

The Facebook prelims will begin at 4 p.m., the prelims on Fox Sports 1 will start at 6 p.m., and the main card will kick off at 8 p.m.

Less than a year after failing a pre-fight drug test and squandering his chance to fight then-heavyweight champ Junior dos Santos, Overeem saw his 12-fight unbeaten streak come to a halt at UFC 156. Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva shockingly KO'd the favored Overeem early in the third round, effectively derailing the mass hysteria that surrounded "The Demolition Man."

The once-beaten Browne also suffered a devastating loss recently at the hands of Bigfoot, although the gargantuan Hawaiian bounced back in his last bout with a first-round KO of Gabriel Gonzaga at The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale. 

But regardless of Overeem's recent pitfalls, aggregate betting website Bovada.com has deemed The Demolition Man a 2.3-to-1 (-230) favorite to top Browne (+180).
